These are a couple of pieces we finished this past week, each going to their respective homes in Halifax. The colour of each one is so rich it reminded us of chocolate or even better, chocolate covered espresso beans! The grain of the wood is varied and interesting (pine on the table and birch on the dresser) and took the layers of stain deeply. This richness doesn’t come with factory produced furniture and that is why we are continually dedicated and passionate about our furniture, finishes and the wonderful homes they end up in. Thanks for shopping local!
When we named this furniture line “South Shore”, it brought to mind images of family cottages that are dotted around our beautiful coastline right here in Nova Scotia. These cottages are homes that have been passed down or have been built to resemble that passed down look. Hence this furniture line embodies that by having the classic lines and worn in perfection that will stand the test of time and can be passed down to future generations.
Referred to as a buffet, console, or sideboard this type of piece is so versatile in any home. Put it in your dining room to store family heirlooms, in a living room with a great piece of modern art above, or in a grand hallway welcoming visitors and instantly putting them at ease. This piece has been a labour of love, featuring a new design for us, with the breakfront design and hand painted in that golden creamy colour that can easily be paired with any colour scheme you have going on in your house. The top has rough hewn boards that have been sanded by hand and the whole piece has finished in bees wax polish, giving it that juicy look that we all love here at henhouse.
