DSC_0039This custom piece started with a client that had her eye on a bed with drawers from a big-box retailer that looked right, but didn’t quite work right for her.  I was able to offer solid walnut selected for its character and uniqueness, a handrubbed oil and wax finish,  a split and angled headboard, and a metal bumper rail above the drawers.  Tailored to work.

Dean Credenza

April 29, 2012

The Dean Credenza is a showcase of contrasting materials: salvaged cedar, navy blue leather and polished brass.  The solid wood case displays the exterior face of planks taken from deconstructed NYC water towers. Dark lines perpendicular to the grain are evidence of the steel bands that once bound the water tank. A wax finish keeps the weathered wood looking as close to its natural grey patina as possible. Doors clad in deep blue leather and brass hardware offset the cedar’s rustic feel.  Casual luxury.

Martin Table

January 19, 2012

We didn’t want the legs of this table to disappear under the large reclaimed wood top, nor did we want more obstruction to leg room than was necessary.  Instead of using steel bar or tube, we achieved  volume by designing with heavy gauge sheetmetal, bent and formed to a custom profile.  The result anchors the space without feeling too heavy. The top is made of floor joists salvaged from a renovation at my shop.
