Another stunner in this exhibit is the breathtaking "Teton Settee" by John Gallis, Cody, WY. This sensuous piece celebrates the meandering growth and coloration of the walnut used in the frame perfectly complemented by supple leather cushioning. In a short video presentation that accompanies the "Cody Style" exhibit, Gallis heralds the marriage of style and usage, saying that good design should be " ... functional and practical and tell a story ... the more you look the more you see." Gallis has triumphantly succeeded with his ultra modern settee that is destined to become a classic in its own time."
