Los Angeles Furniture Store Design Blog-A few custom furniture projects to finish up the yearDesign Blog
December feels like a speeding freight train, or that's sure how time seems to be moving this month. So with one week left we are wrapping up the last of our custom factory orders and closing it down for a whole week, yeah!!
The variety of furniture designs are more varied in style, material and finish than I could remember in a long time, which makes it harder than ever to know what products to feature in our retail store.
One of the last of 2010 projects is a reclaimed lumber dresser and bookcase for a kids room. We built these in solid wood so I think the delivery guys won't be so happy delivering them in the rain.
The dresser body is built out of locally reclaimed wood from a 1920's Spanish Colonial house in Brentwood... 3000 sf just doesn't do it these day's. The drawers
are built out of Alder wood and finished in a white lacquer. To finish this piece off
beautiful chrome handles were selected by the designer.
The dining table as well as the kids dresser/bookcase were designed by Julia Wong Designs www.juliawongdesigns.com
We built all these pieces in our local factory and have to say the metal and wood dining table is amazing. All the metal trim is 1/4" thick solid iron with a distressed aged finish.
Last but actually not least because we still have 2 orders to finish is a funky reclaimed lumber coffee table top and chrome finished metal base. The top was aged and a Bri-Wax top coat was applied for protection against the elements.
