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.

Trestle Table

December 7, 2010

A small apartment’s need of a sleek dining table is perfectly served by the glass topped Trestle table.  The glass was a lucky score from a local salvage yard and the base is constructed of salvaged old-growth douglas fir floor planks.

The piece is displayed here with  a refurbished, vintage Shaw Walker desk chair, and the heavy duty, extendable shelf system I put together using a cast off painters’ plank.
