Here is a pair on French Industrial design inspired conference tables that were finished today for a client. The long one is 10′ x 42″ x 30″ tall and weighs around 1000 pounds. The round table has a 36″ top, uses a smaller base, and weighs close to 350 pounds. The bases are riveted thick gauge steel and the removable tops are aged sugar pine. Prices vary for these pieces based on size and design, but you can have one like the round one for $3,500, and the long one for $5,750. These would also work great as dining tables. Another thought is to polish them up with a glass top for a mid-century modern look.
Just finished a pair of these for a customer. The design is based on a european vintage piece. They are all steel, riveted together with a thick steel top and an aged rust finish. These would work well as side tables, outdoor tables, use a couple of the bases to hold a coffee or dining table top, or use as a display table for your pet elephant. These measure 22″ x 22″ x 24″ tall and weigh around 75 lbs each. I can make these in a variety of size, finishes, and use different materials for the tops. Prices are around $995 each.
My TV needed something under it so I decided on this French Industrial inspired design. The Ironworker Console Table, 48″ x 20″ x 32″ tall (custom sizes and finishes available), weighs around 200 lbs, on 5″ locking cast iron casters, a 50lbs steel riveted top, 124 rivets and 28 braces, aged sugar pine lower shelves, and a rust patina. It got it’s name in honor of the old time ironworkers who, back in the day, built things with pride to last. We can make this in many variations, sizes, finishes, enclose it, add drawers, chrome, copper or polished finish, etc. This would also make a nice kitchen island or worktable. Prices vary, but this size and finish runs $1,650.
Double drawer vintage industrial filing cabinet – 34″ tall x 16″ wide x 27″ deep. Makes a unique side table and fits legal or letter size files with room to spare inside. The drawers were salvaged from an old filing cabinet and the rest was handmade. Available in custom sizes, finishes, with casters, and different drawer combinations. Heavy duty, solid design built to last!
Got the frame built for this new bookshelf design. Used 192 rivets in the construction so I might call this the 1920 bookshelf. Just need to add casters, seal the steel, then bolt on the aged wood shelves. This design was inspired by the French Industrial era.

Here is another variation of the Ellis console table with 4 doors with solid fronts and 2 shelves in the middle. There is a hole in the back of each section for wiring. The piece is 60″ wide x 22″ deep x 32″ tall and weight around 225 lbs. This piece will price around $2295.
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.
Custom Ellis console table with hand polished steel, doors on the top, and a black lacquered oak top. Has a mid-century modern industrial look. This was a piece for a client. Cost to reproduce this is around $1375 for the console plus $350 to polish it.
Started work on a 2 drawer filing cabinet based on a 40s industrial cabinet. I’m pretty excited about this piece! I’m building two and one will have casters, the other legs, and they will be around 35″ tall x 26″ deep x 16″ wide.
Apartment Therapy is having their annual holiday giveaway and I plan on entering a new Brooklyn coffee table design. So hopefully one lucky person will win this table. Here is the last giveaway: http://giveaways.apartmenttherapy.com/2009/holiday
This table is 40″ x 20″ x 19″ tall. It is all metal with lots of rivets and I will be using reclaimed mahogany for the bottom shelf. As usual, this piece is heavy and virtually indestructible. This piece will price around $1,095 and be available in any size. This might make a nice Media console table too. Wife thinks I should enclose it and add doors, kinda like a steamer trunk. Lots of possibilities…
Here’s a combination of a couple things that I enjoy, New York and vintage industrial design. This subway sign was inspired by an old one I saw the other day. It measures 60″ wide x 12″ tall x 1.5″ deep and is meant to hang on a wall. Priced at $475.
