Mahogany Campaign Desk

brass and mahogany custom desk

Mahogany Campaign Desk

This mahogany campaign desk was designed by Springhouse Shop and Studio, Inc. for Kravet, Inc. Beautifully decked out in polished solid brass details, this desk houses three dovetailed drawers on soft closing concealed slides.

The case is dovetailed solid mahogany, with X-shaped bracing in the back. Campaign pulls and trim are from Paxton Hardware and brass ferrules by Pampco, Inc. The dark mahogany stain finish was acheived with water-based aniline dye and protected with Greenguard certified semi-gloss waterborne lacquer.

Alongside this prototype, Adam built a second version from Maple lumber. This may be bleached or painted blue or stained Mahogany as well, we shall see which way the winds of inspiration blow. Custom campaign furniture may be created in any configuration or finish, contact us to get your piece started.

Philadelphia Custom Built-ins

Freshly installed before Thanksgiving, this pair of floor-to-ceiling display cases with push-to-open bottom drawers are full of special glass items and frame out the window near Rittenhouse Square, Philadlephia beautifully. Designed by Mona Ross Berman Interiors with asymetrical layout perfect for this collection, the custom cabinets are painted to match a Donald Kaufman Color (DKC-51) in a semi-gloss finish (it is a white).

The look here is decidedly modern, with thick built-up fixed shelves and minimal, simple trim.

Large Fishtank Bookcase

Main Line cabinetmaker

Custom Villanova Buit-In Bookcase

A very lucky little girl in Villanova, Pennsylvania came home yesterday to a new 90 gallon fish tank housed in a large custom built bookcase designed by Michele Plachter Design. The piece will be painted in place and have a wallpapered back and clear crystal globe knobs as well as fish, of course!

 

The weight of the 90 gallon tank made for some unique building issues to consider and the doors above required a lip to prevent spillout of light from the tank illumination in a darkened room.

In preparation for the wallpaper and paint, the entire piece has been sprayed with two coats of white shellac-based primer (in the shop).

The scalloped upper element makes me think of a circus tent or stage curtains, such a whimsical touch, which is echoed in the side panel.
