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.
Here’s a photo of the completed mid century counter stools in the Central Park East apartment kitchen. Bar stools are usually 30″ and counter stools 25″, it’s important to factor in the height.
The height also can be custom, some spaces have higher counters where ideally the deals are several inches taller than 25″. There are also several additional metal options pictured here, as well as a closeup of the cherry wood grain for this particular mid century style.
Pictured is a set of counter stools we designed and created for a client on 5th Ave. For these stools we used solid cherry wood with a French hand polished finish. Cherry, like walnut, has one of the nicest natural wood grains in the world, and although rarer and more expensive, is an excellent option for furniture. The brushed stainless steel metal rings were also custom made to fit the legs. The stools are available either as 25″ counter stools or 30″ bar stools and, as with all of our furniture, can be be designed incorporating several different wood, finish and metal options. If you have a modern space they look beautiful in natural walnut with brushed steel finished rings as well as with white lacquer and brushed brass or darken brass metal rings. Originally they were designed in the Mid-Century modern style and tend to match well with with a variety of interior spaces.
These white matte lacquer kitchen counter stools are made out of solid wood with brushed stainless steel foot rests.
The modern counter stools are also available on a bar stool height and in different finishes and materials from black lacquer to solid walnut. The metal elements could also be coated to suit different styles.
Pictured is a solid mahogany wood dining table that we offer at our ERA Interiors Store. For this furniture design we incorporated cherry and mahogany veneer on the table top, created a custom pattern, and applied a french hand polished finish. This 5′ diameter could be also custom made in any wood type, finish and size.
Pictured is a dining space that was designed and created by Steven Gambrel. The dining chairs in the picture are vintage and were provided by Axel Vervoordt . These dining chairs are very similar to a pair of solid oak chairs we are currently making for a client. The new custom chairs will be finished in a light natural wood polish and will feature brushed stainless steel metal stretchers at the bottom of the chairs, instead of the wood stretchers featured in chairs in the picture. The main advantages of creating custom furniture is the flexibility and the great number of elements that could be incorporated or changed to achieve the clients desired furniture design.
Pictured is a custom white breakfast table. When creating dining tables stability is essential. Often clients focus on the visual design and overlook the functionality. Proportions, scale and construction limitations are essential to consider when a client wants to achieve outstanding functional design.
When searching for a white crystallized glass material for a custom furniture console we are making for a client in NYC, we came across this great white polished marble slab on the left. This exceptional natural stone is reminiscent of the coffee table on the right. The table features a similar white marble on the top that contrasts the black lacquered wood structure. There are endless choices for counter tops that could be incorporated into custom furniture consoles and coffee tables. Among the most popular counter tops are glass, natural stones, petrified woods and corian tops. Often adding these elements can be what really separates a piece of furniture in terms of originality.
