House Trends Magazine — A dining table that Artie designed in 2008 was mentioned in the March 2013 addition of House Trends Magazine. The article explains how Artie’s client, having gone through a house fire, was able to save and remodel their home. The dining table, the only furniture piece to survive the fire, albeit with some damage, was repaired by Artie and returned  again to be the feature of their dining room. For this renovation project, Artie also created a new credenza of wenge and matching walnut burl to complement  the dining table. The article is on pages 31 thru 39.
