This unique, custom dining table incorporates the use of two antique riddling racks from France as its table surface. It was simply created by securing the racks to a bead blasted stainless steel base and topping it with clear glass. The stainless steel base provided a contemporary solution for the structure that was needed and let the racks stand alone as the unique table top. The originality of the piece results from a combination of the antique quality of the racks themselves, the filtered light that diffuses through them and the contemporary materials that create the structure.

In order to create a table like no other for this client, we designed a custom onyx dining table for entertaining that would comfortably seat 10. The base of the table and a portion of the top are made from wenge veneer, with the focal point of the table being a beautiful slab of white onyx. To add a sense of drama to the table, the onyx may be illuminated from below. The light source is hidden within the stainless steel stretcher below and can be turned on with just a flip of a switch. Colored filters can also be added to lend an even more dramatic effect.

Transitional Console

Ichimura Built-Ins
For unique flexibility in storage space, an elegant composition of modular elements offers the homeowner multiple rearrangements of drawers, cubbies, and boxes with sliding doors. The mixed wood veneers and retro doweled legs add a mid-sixties modernist feel that perfectly suits the interior environment.
Modular Credenza
In order to protect and display the homeowner's favorite books without compromising surface area for entertaining, we created a coffee table featuring a removable wood tray that rests on an integrated cherry wood storage cube. The cube is suitable for holding books, flower, candles or any other mood-enhancing objects.
Cubby Table
For this seating area in the kitchen nook, we custom-designed a unique zebrawood table nestled up to a built-in banquette. The design carefully accounts for details such as the surfboard-shaped wood top, soft mitered edges and U-shaped stainless steel legs to solve the circulation and ergonomic constraints of this small area.
