White & Aqua Entry Cabinet

Stylish storage for shoes and coats

Today this striking entry cabinet moved to a residence in Washington DC, a few blocks from the capitol.

When the home’s front door is opened, it is now the first thing you see! Finished in waterborne lacquer matched to Benjamin Moore White Dove and Cool Aqua the piece is topped with a dramatic sweeping pediment. The bottom has storage for shoes, and the open shelf on the right awaits a custom cushion. Hooks will hold coats, and the door is decked in decorative metal grille.

In the Shop: White Lacquer Armoire


This White Maple Armoire was designed for a client in Hoboken, NJ and features a sleek, hardware-free look. The doors open with a push, the drawers have sculpted handhold cutouts.

In this second drawing, a similar handhold is shown in the left door, but after the piece came together we were able to share a video of the doors in action. The decision was made to skip the asymmetrical door handhold, since it wasn’t needed. The chrome hanging bar is now in place in the upper section.


Built-In Window seats

We have built a few custom windowseats over the years and they are such wonderfully useful built-ins. They provide seating and storage at an inviting, well-lit location, perfect for reading.

The white window seat shown here was installed in a client’s residence in Malvern, Pennsylvania horse country.

It featured five large drawers; one with a with custom lift-out wooden tray for storing smaller items above. The drawer fronts are raised panels and the fluted stiles help complete the traditional look.

The warmer, cream-colored window seat demonstrates a custom shape, other than the more frequently seen rectangle. This more simple and modern-looking piece was well-used in a lake house kitchen. The drawers stored games and toys and whatever needed to be hidden away. The pulls are matching wood. Installed over a transition between the tile and cork floors, the windowseat is a perfect fit!

Do you have a spot that could benefit from a beautiful and functional window seat? They enhance any room and can be tailored to every decor.

Campaign Dresser Feedback


We received a lovely note from a client this morning in our inbox. It is always nice to hear that the work is appreciated in our client’s space and life.

Interior design pro Ilana Cohen commissioned this white campaign dresser for her new daughter’s nursery. Thank you for the feedback!

It looks really sharp with the white/ bright color scheme.

She wrote:

“Just wanted to send some photos of the dresser in Zoe’s room.

I am still thrilled with it!!!”

Whitewashed Four Post Bed

Earlier this month, Adam delivered and set up this custom queen sized whitewashed four post bed, just in time for the homeowner to host a family wedding (in Orange County, New York).

The client desired a simple looking bed with no canopy and substantial, chunky 3” posts with tapered legs. The tear drop shaped bolt-covers blend right in with the legs, which were constructed of figured Quilted Sycamore. The remainder of the bed is Maple, and a bit of wood grain shows through the finish.

In the Shop: Poster Bed

This New York client asked for a four post bed with chunky posts and no canopy or finials. Something austere, like Shaker furniture.

The custom Queen sized bed is constructed from Maple with Quilted Sycamore posts and a classically curved headboard. The finish will be a whitewash with some grain showing through and highlights of bare wood exposed.

Campaign Dresser

White Campaign Dresser


Campaign furniture is a type of furniture made for travel. Historically, much of it was made for military campaigns, according to Wikipedia.

The client presented this image for inspiration (right), and asked for gloss white lacquer and bright polished brass hardware (by Paxton Hardware). The entire case is constructed of solid dovetailed Maple and would be sturdy enough for travel, but very heavy.

From another happy client, “I love it!!  It is perfect!!”.
