Retro Industrial in a century old storefront home

 

A young vibrant couple looked for their turn of the century home to be more of an expression of themselves.  I was first commissioned by Jacob Laws to build the room divider.  This gave much needed storage and display space.  Along with a bit of separation in the voluminous main room.  It's oak, steel and soapstone construction brings industrial chic into the home.

The owners and I then collaborated on the fireplace renovation.  The previous owner had sorta thrown it together.  That was scrapped and a new slate hearth, stonework and steel and walnut panels installed.  

The wife is a talented seamstress and wanted a work table to match her new pieces in the home.  I designed and built the cedar and zinc piece.  The cedar was finished using the ancient Japanese art of Shou-Sugi-Ban wood burning.  The zinc top will add it's own character over it's life as it's patina changes.

A generic townhome goes darkly glamorous.

 

I'll admit it, when the designer, Jessie Miller showed me her plans for this space I had my doubts.  Installing all this crown and panel moulding, chair rail, and custom cabinetry and then painting the entire thing the same black seemed daft.  However, a little under halfway through the install I started to feel the power of the dark side.  With some changes, I could make this my bedroom.  The space turned out fantastic, as the win for Best Bedroom and the numerous articles from around the globe attest.

 

 

Transitional show for AEG

 

For this show I wanted to bring all new pieces to display.  Items that would show my design and fabrication and set a tone for the company style.  What I didn't realize until writing this, is how big of turning point this show was for that style.  Up until this point I had been building rustic/industrial pieces mostly.  Here I rolled out several industrial items that had definite modern elements-clean lines, smooth finishes and bright metals.  Also there was a completely modern look in the Lub Side Table.  Formed from a single piece of steel and powdercoated in satin white it's the epitome of minimal design.
