DINING TABLE FOR EIGHT PEOPLE

By | January 19th, 2013|all, Designs, Dining Space, Dining Tables, Neoclassical, STYLES, Tables|

Deciding the number of people you would like to seat at a dining table is important before you decide on it’s size. It is also very important to consider the size of the table in the space. The table should be to scale and proportion in reference to the size of the dining room. If the shape of the dining room is rectangular you should consider a rectangular or oval dining table and if the room is square a round or square table will work best.

Round dinig tables that are 66″ – 72″  in diameter will seat 8 people.  Rectangular dining table that are 96″  long will also seat 8 people. Here are some images that illustrate a round and a rectangular dining table that will seat eight people.Dining Table for eight people

Custom AV workstation

By | November 9th, 2012|AV Cabinets, CASE PIECES, Contemporary, Designs, Desks, Lacquer furniture, Lacquer Furniture NYC, Office Space|

Pictured is a custom AV workstation we recently completed for a music producer in midtown.  He wanted to have a home workstation in the living room with all of his electronic equipment including mixer/soundboard, audio card, speakers, computer, digital keyboard, power conditioner, fax machine but also function as a piece of furniture when he was entertaining.  The workstation is oak throughout the inside with white matte lacquer doors. We also installed a custom light with a dimmer that can be utilized when the desk is being used or is closed to feature decorative design elements.  In addition to address the heat issue with the electronic equipment we installed two fans inside the cabinet which circulate the air out the back.

Custom 11′ sectional

By | September 18th, 2012|all, Contemporary, Designs, Living Space, SEATING, Sofas, Upholstery|

Here is a 11′ custom sectional we built for a client in the west village recently. The living room was long and narrow and the client was unable to find a sectional that could seat a lot of people and was to scale for the space. The design has a tight seat and three loose back pillows.

The client’s interior designer selected a silk velvet fabric that was stain treated. We created the sectional based on two inspiration images the designer provided, where one sofa had the tight seat and another the loose cushions. If you are interested in designing or purchasing a custom seating option we have an custom sofa & seating inquiry form located here.

This  is a picture of a custom floating desk that we created and installed at a client’s apartment in Greenwich Village, NY. For this project we were asked to build a floating desk top with three pencil drawers and a stitched leather top. We also incorporated task lighting to the bottom of the desk and the middle shelf. The lacquer color is a custom dark  blue that was matched to a color chip provided by the client.

Build ins are a great design element to consider when trying to maximize space and  functionality.

Custom Biedermeir Sideboard

By | April 25th, 2012|Biedermeier, Cabinets, CASE PIECES, Credenzas, Designs, French Hand Polish, Living Space|

Pictured is a custom Biedermeir sideboard we created based off an inspiration image. Often clients provide images from Antique auctions such as a Christie’s auction lot featuring Austrian Biedermeir tables, sideboards and credenzas.  From the inspiration image we are able to meticulously create a custom, original piece.  We begin the production process with shop drawings for client approval and before the piece is ready for finish we send out finish sameples.  On this piece the four doors are framed and veneered in clutch mahogany.  Each door contains two inside drawers which are hand dovetailed and adjustable. The doors have solid brass locks and sideboard was completed with a french hand polish finish.

CUSTOM DINING TABLE DESIGN

By | December 26th, 2011|all, Designs, Dining Space, Dining Tables, Tables|

To create a custom dining table there are three essential elements to consider: size, shape and design style. The size of a dining table should be determined by the number of people seated and the size of the room. The ideal distance between the edge of the table and closest object should be four feet or more to allow enough space for the seating and walking areas.

The shape of a dining table can vary from round to square and rectangular to oval. Considering the shape of the room is essential when deciding on the shape of the dining table. The right table shape will enhance the overall design creating a harmonious, proportional interior space.

The design style is also a fundamental factor in determining if a dining table will work in a space. Some of the most popular/iconic table designs are: Regency, Biedermeier and Art Deco. Here is an image that illustrates the size and shape of the dining tables in reference to the room/space.round and square custom dining tables

CERUSED OAK DINING TABLE

By | October 17th, 2011|all, Ceruse finish, Contemporary, Designs, Dining Space, Dining Tables, Tables|

A cerused finish is created by using an open grain wood such as oak and applying a base stain of one color (gray/green stain) and a paste filler of a different color (white filler).  Solid white oak is the best wood to use when creating a custom piece of furniture where the client wants the highest quality cerused two-tone finish. White oak is an open grain hardwood known for being very durable, strong with a fine texture and is more expensive than red oak.

This 14′ custom dining table is made out of solid white oak wood with a cerused finish. We built this custom table for a client in CT over the summer. Often when building a dining table over 8′ long,  extension leaves for the table top are optional, but for this project the client requested a one piece table top. The gray/green color was custom made to match a color sample provided by the client and the cerused finish was selected/specified before production began.  To read more about the types and characteristics of oak wood visit: http://www.craftsman-style.info/finishing/063-oak.htm.

BIEDERMEIER ROUND DINING TABLE

By | June 22nd, 2011|all, Biedermeier, Designs, Dining Space, Dining Tables, Tables|

Here’s a biedermeier dining table we recently completed for a client in the Hamptons.  Some principal components of Biedermeier furniture include straight lines and a lack of carving.  This design features a single pedestal in the Tuscan Classical column shape and an ebonized reel detail on the bottom of the base. The natural grain of the wood and the veneer, are the most important decorative elements of this piece. The single pedestal terminates in a tripartite base and the table top is veneered in cherry with a star pattern eminating from the center.
