Detroit Modern Furniture


Barry and Ann knew Alan a little bit, prior to walking through his workshop in the Russell Industrial Center a couple years back. Alan spoke of new ideas he had and how he wanted to start an entire collection. At the time he was building several pieces, which of course sparked their interest.

After taking a look at the furniture they ended up purchasing three pieces; the Motion Chair, Quarnge Table and Ipana Chair. Since these were Alan’s original pieces, Alan even signed the bottom with his name and official numbering. Alan took pictures of Barry sitting in the Motion Chair and through computer generation, actually structured the chair to fit Barry perfectly. Cool huh?

“This one I call the piano chair, because we used to have a piano here. The piano died and so we thought, let’s gets something instead of the piano and this chair sort of looks like a piano.” “This one is very comfortable and fits me perfectly.” – Ann

Barry and Ann decided to beautifully place the 3 pieces of Möbel Link furniture by their large wall of windows looking outside. Anne explained that it was the “perfect spot for it!”

Headed to Canada anytime soon? If so be sure to check out the article in the enRoute Magazine in Air Canada. Möbel Link’s very own Alan Kaniarz is featured on Page 48 with a photo of himself and Möbel Link’s Award Winning Motion Chair.

This article dives into the resourceful businesses that Detroit attracts. The article states “Craftwork is as much a part of the city’s DNA as assembly line production.”  Many Detroit located companies are spoken of: Honor & Folly Inn, Craft Cocktail Purveyor Sugar House, Mercury Burger & Bar, Michigan Central Station, Soup, Russell Industrial Center’s A.K. Services & Michigan Hot Glass and Eastern Market.

During Alan Kaniarz’s brief interview he gave some insight into his A.K. Services woodworking shop located in the Russell Industrial Center. He goes on to describe how Möbel Link’s Award Winning Motion Chair is made of dozens of Baltic birch plywood strips that create one elegant rippling line taking three days to produce. He then elaborates on his one-off halo chair with an adjustable crown of light bulbs with bits and pieces salvaged from a nearby church.

Albert Young, Owner and Artist of Michigan Hot Glass states “Artists from all over the country are starting to move in.” Looks like things are looking up for good ol Detroit! With all of the Detroit pride, this city sure will shape up and turn into something more magnificent than it already is. Detroit captures the souls and hearts of Michiganders and brings out the artists in all of us.

Be sure to take a look at the article as it showcases many of Detroit’s great businesses. In Air Canada today!
