Harvey’s Lake Bookcases | Pennsylvania Custom Cabinets

This gorgeous traditional home overlooks beautiful Harveys Lake Pennsylvania in Luzerne County.

The family room houses loads of cozy seating and a television along with a large stone fireplace. One of the homeowners is an avid reader and wanted some beautiful and super functional storage for games, photographs, and of course – lots of books!

The built-in custom bookcases reach from floor to ceiling and wall to wall, flanking a couple of stairs and a pair of pocket doors. They have a somewhat formal styling with panels wrapping the staircase and gracing the inset door fronts. The paint color is Sherwin Williams Extra White.

Pine Street Bedroom built-in

Our latest install was this beautiful white wall of built-ins to a home on historic Pine Street in Old City Philadelphia. The piece has a desk with bookshelves on the right side, with a closet in the middle, and a built-in bank of drawers with more shelves on the left. The desk area included LED lighting. Solid brass Firenza pulls from Signature Hardware were used and the finish is waterborne lacquer matched to Benjamin Moore Pure White.

This room was up three flights of old stairs and was expertly designed to break down to make it to its destination. Just ordered a new camera to take out on installs because this phone just isn’t cutting it any longer! Better images coming soon, promise.

White built-in cabinetry

white wall to wall custom cabinets

In our latest finished work, two wall-to-wall cabinets create some classy storage with Carrara marble counters. Seven drawers and seven doors flank the carved mantel in this beautiful home in center city Philadelphia. The inset doors feature a raised panel with historic style and brass knobs. The paint is semi-gloss waterborne lacquer tinted to match Benjamin Moore Mascarpone, a creamy white. This project was a collaboration with Shophouse Design.

The left side is intended for bar usage and the right side to store children’s items. No matter what they chose to use it for, it adds style to this interior!

Full Size Philadelphia Murphy Bed

Maple Murphy Bed with Side Cabinets

Late last week this gorgeous Maple number was installed in a private residence in Philadelphia. Stretching wall to wall in the guest room, the full size vertical Murphy bed with side cabinets features pullout surfaces and custom handmade pulls as well as an integral ventilation grate. The finish here is satin waterborne lacquer. The foot design has evolved a bit from the previous version of our Murphy bed. On site, the trim was coped to fit seamlessly into the existing baseboard in the room.

Kid’s Room Cabinetry Upgrade

Custom white desk and closet built-in, NYC
Custom white desk and closet built-in, NYC

Yesterday, these two custom bedroom built-ins were installed- and they made a welcome upgrade to a boy’s bedroom on the Upper West Side. The desk was built to match his sister’s, with a file drawer, pencil drawer, dimmable LED strip lighting, bookshelves and more.

The closet has a new central unit featuring an integral step up that doubles as a nook for organizing shoes. There are four sections for hanging clothes, twelve open adjustable cubbies, and four dovetailed drawers on soft close self closing undermount slides. All painted white with waterborne lacquer.

This morning we received a note from the client reading: “J. loves his desk and closet. Thanks!”

Manhattan TV cabinet

White Floor to Ceiling Bookcase

Bright and early this morning, this impressive floor to ceiling built-in bookcase and TV cabinet went on its way to Manhattan. Comissioned by Mona Ross Berman Interiors, with hardware by Restoration hardware and waterborne lacquer in Benjamin Moore White Dove, a 40″ Samsung TV will go in the center and three satin nickel lamps will be mounted below the crown molding.

Measuring 6′ 1″ wide and 9′ tall, the piece features beaded adjustable shelves and inset door openings that really dress the cabinet up. It will be scribed into the existing trim so that it looks as if it was always there.

Black + Cherry Kitchen and Vanities

 

 

 

These are some progress snapshots of the amazing timberframed home in Orangeville, PA where our latest custom kitchen has been installed. The Italian stove is a showpiece and the Kitchen Island with canitlevered light by Restoration Hardware stands out. The Island will allow seating on three sides and serve as the sole dining table.

Two bathroom vanities are also in. The Master bath double sink vanity boasts a substantial Black frame with Walnut drawers. The smaller bath has a spalted poplar vanity with a Mexican ceramic sink. The details of the house are coming together and we will get some finished images when things are settled.

Custom Radiator Cover, Philadelphia

Custom Radiator Cover, Pine Street
Installed Radiator cover with Marble top

This beautiful home in Philadelphia had a dramatic wainscotted entryway with sophisticated details- with the exception of one glaring radiator.

Now the radiator is tucked away under marble, hidden behind a pretty piece of woodworking with curves, angles, and raised panel inset drawers (Chippendale pulls by House of Antique Hardware) – all painted Benjamin Moore Mascarpone.

In collaboration with the wonderful Ilana Cohen of  IC Design. Marble top by Castillo Stone.
