A Lexington studio furniture designer/builder who enjoys pushing the edge is Lynn Sweet. Like Wujcik, Sweet works at UK, where he is a technical aide at the College of Fine Arts/Department of Art’s art studio.

Outside of his work at the university, Sweet’s niche is designing and creating “neo-modern” or “new modern” furniture crafted primarily from veneer laminated to cabinet-grade plywood. He uses all types of veneer, including exotic African hardwood such as Anigre. He also incorporates mate- rials such as glass, granite, and fabricated steel into some of his designs.
