Kitchen Island - This kitchen was transformed into a functional multi purpose space with the addition of this kitchen island. It creates a fluid barrier with the rest of the house while providing a work surface, eating area, and storage. The white Caesarstone toppairs beautifully with the high gloss lacquer finish and keeps the space looking bright and spacious.
Condo Shelving and Storage - Making the most of every square inch of your condo space is an important part of condo life. This installation allows the home owner to turn their area under the stairs into a compact home office. Books are neatly stored, cabinets hide loose papers, the opening allows for an office desk, and a custom made grommet allows for electrical to be brought up through the walnut counter top.
Retrofitted Steamer Trunk - I was approached by the gentlemen at Rogues Custom shoes to turn this old steamer trunk into a mobile store. The inside is lined with monogrammed leather and furnished with walnut shelves, writing surface, and storage space. Solid brass rod was used for the heel catches and the round shelves swivel out to maximize the units visual footprint. The stool was made in house as well and fits compactly inside the trunk when not in use.

Memento - It is important to keep reminders of the places you love, especially when moving to a new country. This coffee table was made from a fallen tree taken from a couples family cottage. They were moving to the states and wanted to take a piece of their cottage with them. To our surprise,the inside of the log was spalted maple, a beautiful patterning created in maple by a fungus.
