Took some pictures of some new designs just finished. Includes a couple filing cabinets made with some new and salvaged steel, an NYC kitchen table which weighs in around 150 lbs, and a new Brooklyn design.
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…
This table adjusts in height from 18″ to 30″ making it ideal for a coffee table or small dining table. And it’s so strong, that I could stand on the corner of the top and it would barely flex, so you could use it as a work table too. The threaded screw has a spinning lock underneath to keep it secure. This was a custom piece for a client, and I can remake it or change things around. The top is 3/16″ thick steel and 40″ x 40″ with a 1″ x 2″ boxed frame underneath. Price would be around $1075.
This desk has a modern yet vintage look. It’s made of steel and has a stylish V in the top for holding magazines, books, etc. This piece is 60″ wide x 38″ tall x 24″ deep which is working or bar height, and custom sizes are available. It’s heavy, approximately 250 lbs, and could have casters too to make it easy to move around. Priced at $1,475.
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.
After watching the show 9 by Design, I felt inspired to make some sort of big city sign. I decided on this one which was inspired by a French subway sign. This piece is intended to be a console table top, but after I built it I realized that it could stand alone on a wall as a decoration. So I’ll be offering this (de)sign for sale. This top is quite heavy, maybe 30 lbs, so I’ll be making a thinner gauge version which will look identical, just weigh half as much. You could also tape pictures behind each letter to make an interesting gallery. The steel has a vintage patina, like a dark blue and gray, and the metal has a matte sealer on it. This will be priced at $350 approximately. I could do custom sizes too. Size is 36″ x 16″ and it is 1.5″ deep.
And here is the layout for another sign I’m working on based off of a vintage NYC subway sign. This will probably be 5′ wide and priced around $695. It’ll be all steel with rivets on the face, just like the Metro sign above.
Prototype chair base that adjusts in height from 18″ – 31″. It swivels or locks into place and will work for a dining table, as well as a bar stool. I’m not sure if I am using steel or wood for the seat, we’ll see. But it definately has that industrial factory look. Reminds me an old jack stand or some kind of press.
With New York being a big inspiration for my designs, I set off to build a tribute to the amazing place. My clients in New York usually have a few things in common: they want something unique that has an industrial feel, it needs to be functional yet beautiful, and space is always an issue.
I feel these pieces meet all of those needs. They were built as 2 separate tables that can function as side or accent tables, yet when put together, they work as a coffee table. The custom font that I created makes them blocky as possible which leaves lots of top surface area. And they have latching doors so you can use them for storage (about 3.5 cubic feet each). You can also face the letters forward, or upwards. After I built them, I realized how heavy they were (120lbs approx). So these could be used as safes if I installed an optional lock.
Dimensions: 20″ x 20″ x 20″
Weight: 120 lbs each
Price: $1,350 for both
