Since the 1951 founding of Jasen's Furniture & Appliance Company in Roseville, Michigan, by Walter and Jenny Jasen, the furniture store has built a custom of assisting generations of clients trying to find excellent furniture designed to last a lifetime. Presently known as Jasen's Fine Furniture, the store's two-story showroom at 27603 Gratiot is loaded with renowned custom Michigan made furniture attracting patrons from across southeast Michigan and points far beyond. The store's Amish-made furniture collection could easily pass for art in its own right, but there's another attraction with ever-growing popularity raising art to new heights: Michigan-related wood charts. |
Exhibiting the very best in Michigan made wall art appealing to the area's massive number of nautical enthusiasts (along with a healthy representation of landlubbers having an eye for lake-inspired décor), these wood charts fabricated by skilled artists can beautifully compliment a vast array of home furnishings. "Timeless beauty" are words often used by guests browsing wall art on display in the Jasen's Fine Furniture showroom.
Science and art blend seamlessly in each and every wood chart. Portraying prominent maritime areas helping give rise to the Great Lakes State moniker, these shockingly affordable pieces of art portray bodies of water such as Lake Superior, the Straits of Mackinac, Lake St. Clair, and more-- along with the popular shoreline ports beloved by sailors. If you're not from these parts, take heart; wood charts can also illustrate sights of the Pacific Northwest's volcanic coastline, the attraction of the Atlantic coastline that's been the life's blood of fishermen for generations, and the sandy coasts of the American southeast and southwest.
Work kicks off with a detailed bathymetric chart (think of this as the under-sea rendition of a three-dimensional topographic map) portraying the depths of the highlighted body of water. Baltic birch is then utilized as the wood of choice to be laser-cut and shaped to visually represent water depths. Layers are then glued together, with select layers hand-stained with a blue hue to differentiate land and water. Finally, the piece is framed in a custom, solid-wood frame protected by a durable, transparent plastic sheet.
These highly-prized pieces make incredible wall art for the home, summer cottage, office or other destination. Also appealing for customers desiring an alternative to a decoration is the ability to combine artwork with a functional piece of furniture. Should clients desire other options, wood charts could be placed within furniture pieces such as grand coffee tables-- offered in practically any size, shape and color, and crafted from select wood chosen by the customer-- that can include a drawer, if desired. Made proudly in the State of Michigan, these tables are designed to enhance the appearance of any home with a tasteful commitment to excellent quality Jasen's Fine Furniture customers have enjoyed for decades.
