A few table bases

Here are a few commissioned tables Kyle designed and created with his assistant Kallen over the last few months.

This table was created for a couple that needed a base to go with their existing butcher block top. Kyle created a hefty design to visually and physically support the thick top. The feet rest on casters so it can be easily moved about the kitchen as needed. You can see the finished table with the top installed below.

Next up are a pair of large coffee tables for a hotel in the Washington, DC area. The client for these tables requested designs inspired by gears. Kyle had a lot of fun creating these two coordinating tables. These are some seriously substantial tables! They weigh in at about 300 lbs each. Good thing the hotel won’t need to move them often once installed.

Below are a few work-in-process shots of each table, as well as photos of the finished tables and detail shots of each table.

Magic Carpet Ride custom mosaic

This spring Johannah worked with a client to design and create a custom mosaic for their home. The piece was created for a specific location in their kitchen, and we used colors and nature themes found through the house.

A series of process shots from idea sketches to color palette, through the creation of the finished piece. We used Italian smalti, an opaque glass and traditional mosaic material, for the leaf silhouettes and various glass and porcelain tiles for the background.

The finished piece in our studio...

... and some detail shots plus the piece installed in their kitchen. The title of the piece comes from the rippling background combined with the night sky feeling of the gold tile sprinkled amidst the blue.

Butler's Pantry

This all-steel butler's pantry was a commission for a chef here in Richmond and a fun change of pace for us. She wanted a distressed look to this piece, so the welds and darkened mill scale on the steel are rougher than our usual treatment. Check out a few shots of the process and installation below.

The bottom doors are fronted with steel mesh, while the top doors have glass installed in them. We thought this handsome and industrial piece looked just right once installed in its downtown loft home.
