This year has been the record breaker of building extremely large custom dining tables. Our very own Daniel Kucan reminisces about his own family's extra large table and the Thanksgivings of his youth which originally appeared on Rawcityhomelounge.com.
Rustic & Woodsy Interior Design at Yosemite National Park
Posted by maite on 11/20/2014
My last post focused on the luxurious museum quality furniture, lighting and interior design of the 1920's Ahwahnee Hotel, a National Historic Landmark at Yosemite Park. At $400 a night this lodging is as architecturally stunning as it's nearby counterpart, Half Dome.
For a less opulent, more earthy experience, Curry Village Camp also offers historic lodging from the the turn of the twenty century geared towards families and Grizzly Adams types.
Exquisite Interior Design & Furnishings at Yosemite National Park

I left L.A. last week with two wishes-- to escape the heatwave, and to forget about the world of custom furniture and design for a few days I escaped to Yosemite National Park where my first wish was promptly answered by experiencing this year's first snowfall.

in the Gap windows as we sip our iced pumpkin lattes.

Ode to Octobe Part 1: Moody & Mysterious furniture
Posted by maite on 10/20/2014
In honor of October, the month of all things foreign, dark, and other worldly, we present some of our favorite custom pieces we've made this year that embrace the season. Like the scheming ravens and silent owls that watch us on these moonless nights, these pieces are a little moody, a little mysterious, maybe even naughty....
