These carved furniture pieces are made by Sabiha Mujtaba from Atlanta, Georgia, United States.
Sabiha Mujtaba was born in Karachi, Pakistan but raised and educated in London, England.
She moved to Atlanta in 1981 and start her company “Chrysalis Woodworks” in 1986.
She has studied under several woodworking masters including Sam Maloof, James Krenov, Silas Kopf and Wendy Maruyama.
While adhering to the functional principles of furniture making, Sabiha’s primary focus is on the aesthetic relationship between rigid and flowing forms.
Her work is influenced by her South Asian heritage and by her love of nature and organic forms.
“My approach to design is usually on an intuitive level, however, once it’s there, I allow it to gel without necessarily investigating its origins.
During this “waiting” period, some osmosis takes place, where this idea collects its own information and I enjoy that revelation process.”
