The 2″ thick counter top will be installed once situated and will feature an integrated raised concrete bowl by a local Halifax company. As you can see, each drawer accommodates plumbing with ample usable and accessible storage.
Although we have not seen the house this coffee table is going into, we are led to fantasize that this hefty table is destined to hold its own in one of the many dreamy ocean side homes that dot our Nova Scotian shoreline.
Our customer chose from our many blue hued samples a layering of two distinct blues that have been rubbed back to show wear and tear that give the overall look a faded appearance. The top surface is rough pine boards that have been stained and waxed to look weather-beaten and relaxed.
For this particular project we worked with a couple who live in the heart of the city where the house are old yet charming and their interior spaces cozy yet TINY! This couple needed a small spot in their kitchen to sit down and enjoy their coffee and paper. We worked with them and designed this small built in nook and chose for them upholstery fabric that was soft and interesting. The stripe on the main cushions and the quilted pattern on the toss cushions work well with their original brick hearth and are kept in the rich burnt orange tones; both are from Kravet fabrics. We also designed this petite round pedestal table in birch and gave it a rich warm cognac antique stain. We were all pleased with the results!
This sunny round dining room happily dictated the shape of this table we built for homeowners here in Bedford, NS. Just off the kitchen, this relaxed household needed a table that was elegant yet family friendly with a mix of kids and grandkids coming and going. Able to accommodate 6-8 we designed and built this piece in pine and took finishing cues from a family heirloom close by. The antique hutch is made from mahogany, so we used the same tones and blended stains to achieve a rich warm red/brown in our table. The round braided carpet, also from henhouse layers the warmth of this room.
