Pure, intellectual clarity, inspirational
Elms are the English name for the Ulmus species of wood. The ancient Romans used to plant elms in vineyards as supports for vines. The Roman poet Publius Ovidius Naso, in his Amores poetry, characterized the ancient “marriage” between the elm and the vine.
In this Renaissance Collection, the Pearl Elm (EF 50), Ivory Elm (EF 60) and Marino Wood (EF 56) are our second generation vanguard designs that seek to create a white-washed effect of the elm grain. The new additions to this series are Maple Elm (EF71 and EF202), Sunrise Elm (EF205) and Ash Elm (EF402). The root inspiration from the pre-Renaissance era drives their design which seamlessly integrate into the renaissance heritage and culture. See designs below.
