Weathered Cedar Bed

March 31, 2013


Weathered cedar reclaimed from historic NYC watertanks form a slim headboard and sturdy rails. Simple steel legs keep it feeling light.


Claire Bed

July 25, 2012

Budget conscious and beautiful, this simple queen bed is done completely out of reclaimed spruce.  Like all REASON beds, it eliminates the need for a box spring, freeing up valuable space underneath for storage.  We are going to add four large rolling drawers under this one to take advantage of every square inch.

Work Table and Benches

Practical, simple, clean, affordable.  Salvaged spruce.  Well considered proportions.

Five Degree Platform Bed

This queen bed takes its name from the subtle angle in its headboard.  The design showcases exceptional reclaimed water tower redwood in its primary components. The support slats are milled from reclaimed spruce floor joists, and the simple legs are blackened steel.





Atlantic Shelving

October 23, 2011

Add storage and display space, check.  Accentuate the height of the room, check.   Maintain a free-hanging look, check. Integrate the television and media components, check.  Hide cords, check.   Come in on budget, check…

The Atlantic Shelving and Media System accomplishes all these goals through simplicity.  The materials are modest: blackened steel brackets and reclaimed douglas fir planking, and the forms are basic.  Careful attention to proportions and spacing allow an amazing amount of functionality to complete the room rather than clutter it.  The media cabinet is fit with a heavy duty, full extension shelf that allows easy access to the components’ cables while keeping the tangle out of sight.

Clark Table

August 7, 2011

This table’s variations on traditional form make it subtly modern.  A single beam supports the length of the top rather than a traditional apron, and the diagonal taper of the legs lightens the piece while gently defying its farmhouse origins. It was born of NYC construction salvage: douglas fir floor joists milled to show fresh new faces.  Dark amber stain provides a big head start towards the fir’s natural color after decades of darkening.

Windfall Coffee Table

March 24, 2011

This claro walnut was harvested from a windfallen tree in Marin County.  The termites got to it before the sawyer though.  It was pretty far gone, but I’m not easily discouraged.  I filled the tunneling with resin and created a curved base to complement the slab’s gentle bend.
