I was busy yesterday delivering a cocktail table to a client's home and snapped a few pictures of the progress. Thought you might like to see! Things are not quite finished, we have pillows and art on the way. But I was so excited about the table, I had to share.
My friend George Rosenburger, a fantastic metal craftsman made the support legs from steel he got from an historic bridge in Folsom, California that was disassembled a couple of years ago. It is solid rolled steel, and very heavy! I know, because I helped Dave Puente carry the table into the house. Dave is another great friend who made the solid walnut top and assembled the table for me.
Getting the details right near the end of the project seems to take the most time. It is so important for a project to take on the personality of the home owner, so art and accessories need to reflect that personality. It takes a little time to gather the items that tell a story about who lives here.
We are in the home stretch (so to speak) and I will take some more photos when things are all done!
If you have a project in mind at your home, or are starting from the ground up, I invite you to contact me about our design services.
