Projects undergo a transformation as they go through the design stage. This second rendering (above) of a king sized bed with six drawers is more in keeping with the client’s affinity to objects with provenance and patina. Dust and allergens in the room will be kept to a minimum with no bunnies able to hide under the bed, while the drawers promise plenty of space to stash and organize shoes or clothes. The edges will all be kept rounded so there will be less shin bruising than occurs around some sharp-cornered platform beds. The first version of the bed (below) looks entirely different, with exposed joinery and carved raw boards at the head and foot.
One of our current jobs is a space saving bedroom set – starring a built-in Murphy bed and bookcase paired with a dresser and matching mirror.

Near Rittenhouse Square in a new Philadelphia townhouse, this solid walnut extension dining table shares a room with a painted geometric display case. Multiple wood tones and paint peacefully coexist in the tasteful space. The table will seat six with this configuration and the additional leaves will create plenty of space for dinner guests. When not in use, the leaves are stored in a closet in a felt-lined case.
The cubes of the entertainment unit make ideal compartments to display artful treasures, favorite books, as well as the TV and accessories.
