The store, located on Lafayette Street in SoHo, features ceramics by South African artist Lisa Firer, doors made of Congolese sapele pommele
trees, and a Paris Berbere rug, among other fine details.
Woods from all around the world were used to create the piece including Chestnut, Eucalyptus Pommele
, Holly, Lacewood, Maple, Olive Ash and Ripple Sycamore.
Walnut burl sourced from the United States is used on a majority of the cars, with maple, chestnut, oak and sapele pommele
among the other species used.
It has Sapele veneer in a dark truffle finish with linear ribbon stripe and raindrop pommele
The riser is a combination of Pommele
Bubinga and cocobolo with a black wave and accented laminations.
It can have quilt, fiddleback and curl, but I've also seen it with just about every figure there is, including bird's-eye, pommele
, angel stamp and spalting.
The sunroof which covers almost three quarters of the entire roof and costs pounds 1,200 while the choice of Sapele Pommele
wood finish on the instrument panel, door trims and centre console adds a further pounds 495.

I've enjoyed working with pommele
figured sapele veneer in a sidebar I made for a client.
"We have had pommele
and bird's-eye figures, but they had little interest for clients who preferred the barber pole look."
