We’re revamping our website finally! So expect that sometime next month. I’ve been updating it myself for 3 years and we’re finally¬†getting some professional help!! My days as a web designer / furniture designer / fabricator / janitor / salesman / bookkeeper / everything are over! I’m focusing on design now which is my passion.

We’ll have a better shopping cart to easier facilitate online transactions and track orders. And it’ll look professional which is something I know we’re lacking. So stay tuned. Below are some new things in the shop…

Here’s a Bronx table we just finished this week. It has a 7′ x 40″ steel top and is a real looker. I actually like the steel top better than the wood on this design.

Our Vintage Industrial Ellis Design

I was going through all the Ellis consoles we’ve made. There’s been a lot of them! So I put together an album and slideshow with some of my favorites. We’ve built them as coffee tables, media consoles, point of sale stations for restaurants, hostess stands, side tables, night stands, dressers, filing cabinets, sideboards, as a hutch, kitchen island, and more. Seems to be our most versatile design. I’ll be adding more info as well as sizing and options. All of these are custom Ellis’s:

Vintage Industrial Hostess Stands / POS Carts

By | commercial furniture, Hostess Stand, POS station | 2 Comments

Below are some hostess stands we made for a couple restaurants last week. These 2 designs can be customized to suit your needs. Pricing starts around $2895 and right now our lead time is at 8 weeks (it varies), so place your order soon to get it in time for your opening!

Both POS designs are built to last, and catch the attention of potential customers. We can also add brass accents (something new for us). Options include keyboard trays, drawers, menu holders, holes for wiring and POS computers, legs, casters, brass trim, hardwood accents, aged stenciling, etc. Although these pieces are new, we go through great lengths to age them from top to bottom.

Smith Commons Vintage Industrial Hostess Stand

By | furniture, Hostess Stand | No Comments

This piece was part of a project for the Smith Commons restaurant in DC. We built several cafe tables, bar tables, and this hostess stand. This is probably my personal favorite design to date.

36″ w x 48″ t x 20″ deep on locking 5 spoke casters. Features include a rare reclaimed Philippine mahogany top originally installed as school bleacher seats in 1912, handmade iron work on top, sliding keyboard tray, wiring access from top to bottom for monitor/keyboard/computer, 3 cubbies for menus, ornamental lattice work on back, rivet work, stenciled wood top, backsplash, sloping top, all handmade steel construction with a vintage patina. It has a French Industrial style circa 1940s.
