The latest item out of the woodshop is this custom cube shaped side table for Philadelphia interior designer Jennie Pritzker.
The piece has rounded edges to prevent the client’s toddler from falling onto a pointy edge, is painted in waterborne lacquer in Benjamin Moore Wickham Grey, and measures 28” H x 26” W x 26” D.
Also in progress are two Queen Size Murphy Beds. One is gorgeous Walnut, the other will likely be painted. We will have one of these super useful pieces installed in our new showroom so that clients can come see one in the flesh if they like.
This Custom Walnut Murphy Bed, commissioned by interior designer Adele Danziger, features a bookcase and roll out nightstand, and has matching wooden pulls. The piece, which measures 96” tall 83” wide 18” deep, houses a queen bed in an addition on a historic Bucks County farmhouse. The cut out in the nightstand counter provides a convenient handhold for getting in and out of bed.

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. We’ll be making some Maple stain samples to send to the client for comparing with her paint choices. These pieces should be installed in Manhattan this March or April.
This bed and nightstand were commissioned by the Philadelphia based design & construction firm, Rissay Ltd, for their complete overhaul of an old city “trinity” home. Their designer sent us photos of a bed and nightstand: they liked the design, and needed us to build a customized version to maximize the very small bedroom space. The original pieces of furniture were painted off-white.
The new bedroom furniture was painted a dark grey color (called Anthracite), topped with a subtle warm brown glaze, and protected by a satin sheen varnish. The center panels of the bed as well as the countertop on the three-drawer nightstand were distressed and stained a complementary cherry tone. The bed features turned finials, a scalloped footboard, matching wooden teardrop-shaped bolt covers, and a curved headboard with bead board paneling. The headboard was constructed with mortise and floating tenon joinery so that it could be completely disassembled in order to squeeze up the narrow, winding staircase. The partners were pleased and their client was moved in this weekend.
This pair of nightstands, dresser, and bathroom vanity all look great in a new master suite. The matching walnut wood, modern lines, splayed legs, and chrome art deco hardware work well with the silver fabric-covered headboard and blue walls. In this case, the client found a furniture elsewhere online and wanted a whole suite of furniture custom made to fit this room. The effect is a serene and luxurious escape. There is also a matching wooden panel on the jacuzzi tub (not pictured) on the wall opposite the double vessel vanity with storage tower. The glass tile work was beautiful throughout the bathroom and into the large shower. Additionally, there was a dressing vanity built for this bedroom set, designed after the below photo that the client provided.
