The roundabout way. Cyma curves abound in furniture designs both traditional and contemporary. Once you understand what lies beneath, it opens up the world of curves.

I can still remember Holloway’s farmhouse. Even in summer when the fireplace was cold, the smell of wood smoke lingered in the air. That pungent aroma, combined with a skillet of fried chicken and fresh greens wafting in from the kitchen, pulled you into the heart of the house.

Wide plank floors squeaked as food made its way to a round oak table surrounded by old ladderback chairs. Not the most comfortable chairs, but if you pulled yourself around sideways and hooked an elbow around a back rung, you could settle in for the banter and laughter that always followed a meal.

In my memory, I can still run my hands over the curved contours and worn places on that old farm table and chairs.
