Original Furniture Designs
I worked with the client and craftsman to design and create this one of a kind console/serving table for her dining room at The Mayfair high-rise building in Dallas. The top is a stunning, 3" thick slab of walnut, full of knots and cracks. The wood legs are carved and chiseled to appear to be metal and were finished in gold leaf to match light sconces on the wall above the table.
My San Francisco clients wanted a unique occasionable table for their living room. The table was to be 24" in diameter. I found this beautiful, gold plated table base, imported from France, standard with a glass top. I had the sunburst, white figured sycamore top made for it to replace the glass.
My Dallas client needed a place to put on make-up in her bedroom. There were no solid walls available for placement of a table for this task. The two window walls had glass to the floor and provided views of the city from her bed. So, I created this all glass table and a mirrored vanity cabinet to sit in front of one of the windows. The mirrored cabinet would virtually disappear. And one could see through the desk and clear lucite chair to see the view.
A Redding, California client had a Santa Fe pueblo style ranch home. For one of his guest bedrooms, he had purchased Stickley furniture but still needed a cabinet, to house a TV, with drawers for guests clothes. I designed, and had made by my work shop in San Francisco, this cabinet which was influenced by the furniture styles of both periods. Inspired by 1905 Gustav Stickley furniture, this cabinet is made of oak and the color was matched to the client's existing furniture. The woven iron grills for the doors were hand forged in Sante Fe and incorporated into the doors by my workshop. The iron feet and door and drawer hardware were hand forged as well.
These are examples of my creating unique furnishings for my clients to suit their needs and desires.
