New Work: A custom Standing desk in North American Beech and powder coated steel.

I’m very happy to see this completed; the beech looks really great against the RAL 7033 powder coating, which was chosen by the client (she could not have chosen a more perfect color, in my opinion). The color of the powder coating has a long military history, including german war tanks and submarines and dates back as far as WWII. The use of a unique color for furniture is refreshing to say the least and it’s a welcome change from the standard black or white that is usually chosen for powder coating.

The shape of the frame is another unique element that I was happy to incorporate into the design of the desk; I enjoy using rigid geometry and architectural structure in my furniture work and it’s not often that I get to, so I was very pleased to have the chance with this project.

I think this will win for my favorite project of the year.

New Work: Custom Double-Wide Chaise

I recently completed this custom chaise/sofa hybrid for a Toronto couple who wanted the ultimate spot for just the two of them to relax at home. The Sofa features all solid white ash construction, european style webbed seat supports and heavy cotton weave upholstery.

Process: 3D Printing

I have recently taken up working in a new medium, plastic, via 3D printing. I'm excited to open the door to a broader spectrum of possibilities for designing and creating unique objects. Going forward I will be offering some of these pieces for sale, as well as taking commissions for 3D printed work.
