Pictured is a solid white oak coffee table we created in our studio. The design/style was based on the gray Cerused coffee table featured on our website.  The simplicity of this coffee table makes it the perfect element that can be incorporated in the design of a clean contemporary  or a rustic home.  The last image illustrates some of the finish options we offer for the light ceruse option.

Inspiration images for custom furniture are often drawn from past designs as well as images of furniture pieces in existing spaces. This living room displays the inspiration image for a custom x base breakfast table we are creating. The original design featured here has a black ebonized finish, a brass metal inlay, brass feet and a parchment top . The new x base design we are creating  is being made out of mahogany wood and will have a hand polish finish, steel feet and steel inlay. We’ve created similar designs incorporating the x base in a desk, an x base bench and a stool with the x base.  Here are several other versions of the x base desk.

SILVER LOUIS PHILIPPE MIRROR

By | May 10th, 2011|ACCESSORIES, Bedroom, Dining Space, Entry, Living Space, Mirrors, Reproduction, Store|

Silver Louis Philippe Mirror Louis Philippe mirrors are very popular and often incorporated into high end residential design projects.  They can be placed on top of fireplaces, behind a sofa in living rooms, and in bedrooms, entries and dining areas. Something very important to avoid when locating  furniture pieces with a gold or silver leaf finish is the temperatures that the furniture piece will be exposed to. Drastic and extreme temperatures can damage the piece whether it is an antique or a custom piece. This is a silver leaf Louis Philippe mirror with a  pearl trim detail that we created for a client in a custom size.  This style is very popular and we also offer it with a gold leaf finish.

Swedish side chair

Designer: Grant K Gibson

The Gustavian chairs incorporated in the design to the left reminded me of a set of six Swedish dining chairs we created a few years ago. The dining room set of chairs were drawn from an original Gustavian chair that the client had found at a show. The additional five chairs were custom made by ERA Interiors for the project and were finished to match the existing gold leaf of the original chair. These chairs look elegant in modern as well as traditional spaces and incorporate the warmth prevalent in this historic design style.

INCREASING POPULARITY OF CUSTOM FURNITURE

Great article on the Wall Street Journal today about custom handmade furniture. The vast majority of furniture related products in stores is mass produced and machine made, even in many of the supposed “higher end” retail stores.  Machine made furniture is so prevalent unless people have antiques they often are unaware of the enormous difference in quality between handmade and machine made furniture.  With high end wood custom furniture hardware and screws will be rarely if at all visible and more often solid wood will be used.  Within the custom wood furniture production world there is a wide range of talent, from entry level woodmakers  to many intermediate to few master craftsman furniture makers.contemporary modern furniture
