When a piece of furniture needs to be custom made, site specific design is often the best solution. We designed this entry console for our Heather Park project and collaborated with local craftsmen for the fabrication. It needed to stand alone in conveying the client’s personal style – quiet and refined with attention to subtle details. It also needed to fit in a tight space and stand up to occasional bumps in a high traffic area. A steel base allowed us to design a delicate looking tapered leg and maintain the required robustness – and we were able to finish the steel with a matte powder coating colour matched to the high- gloss lacquered cabinet. Soft grey on the outside, the touch latch drawer reveals an oil walnut interior.
