Custom Made Just for You
Posted on Nov 7, 2011Nov7
It seems as if there are endless options for furniture out in the marketplace. One of the reasons that my clients use my services is to help sort through all the possibilities to determine which selections work best for their taste and lifestyle. However, despite the endless choices, sometimes the exact item needed and wanted is just not available. This is when it makes sense to create a custom piece that totally meets the needs of the clients. This large coffee table I created for a family that lives in suburban Boston is an example of a great custom piece. The clients wanted a room that was family-friendly but didn’t sacrifice style and function. I couldn’t find a table that met their storage needs and had the look we wanted, so I designed one myself! Prior to having the custom table fabricated, I worked on a number of designs. Here’s one of the later versions of the design; it was ultimately decided to use touch latch mechanisms as opposed to drawer hardware. The custom table is made using a reconstituted zebra wood veneer. I designed the piece so that the drawers with alternating wood grain really show off the incredible beauty of the wood material. An abundance of drawers provide storage for every clicker, ipod, and magazine, and all the clutter associated with a busy family stays out of sight.
