The Wrong Woods furniture series is a collaboration between designer Sebastian Wrong and artist Richard Woods for Established & Sons.

Introduced to the public at the 2007 Milan Furniture Fair, the complete Wrong Woods line includes a night table, a chest of drawers, a bookcase, and a credenza type storage unit. All are available through YOOX.com.
