Plane Cloud

Storyboard Furniture may be a new kid on the block, but the company is already making waves. Or perhaps it's more accurate to say clouds.


Two NSCAD University in Halifax alums, Mike Sharpe and Dennis Hale, joined forces in February 2013 and are applying their individual expertise – Mike’s is in silversmithing and sculpture (he has pieces in the Musee Mandet collection in Riom, France), while Dennis is a third-generation woodworker specializing in sculpture and conceptual art – to fine furniture guided by a “tree to table” approach. Storyboard salvages ill-fated trees in the Greater Toronto Area from its clients’ own property to create beautiful custom objects with ecological integrity – for example, the Plane Cloud Pendant Lamp, which was launched at Toronto’s Interior Design Show in January.
