Minimal White Pendant

This is a seriously minimalistic pendant! The sleek, white cylinder shade against a tiny sliver of dark, smooth wood and just a touch of hardware make this a statement lighting piece without being too loud. With an already wired plug, we think this pendant could work in so many different ways.

Coca-Cola Kitchen Island

SOLD

Custom kitchen island designed to include and complement the client’s family heirloom, which include vintage Coca-Cola crates and ephemera. Made with rustic barn-boards that sport a red undertone and match the Coca-Cola crate drawers.
From the client:

“My dad invented the first plastic carbonated beverage container- before that it was always in glass, which broke in transit, was very heavy, and costly to transport. My dad invented the formula that allowed them to figure out the permeability of plastics… It happened to be that the client was Coca-Cola.

My father has gotten rid of much of his collection, but when I was over there I saw this beautiful wooden crate… This one was so nice because it wasn’t the typical bright red- it was just a beautiful wood tone, but you could still see the red “Coca-Cola,” very faded.

I wanted to bring something “Coca-Cola” into my kitchen, because it was such an important part of my parents life, collecting antique Coca-Cola memorabilia. The finished piece incorporates the wood from the barn boards, it incorporates the red of the boards, and it worked out really nice.”

 

Barn Boards, Guyette Farm

Available

What is farmland without a farm or without a barn- the structures that originally defined that land’s purpose in history?

The Guyette farm in Plainfield, Massachusetts, is home to an early 19th century English barn, not an average barn, but one full of unique architectural features not commonly found all in a single structure: large hand-hewed timbers, intricate English joinery, a steep roof, a five sided ridge beam and robust wind bracing in the roof system. This group of distinctive features defines this building as an early example of a classic English hinterland barn: the singular landscape element that symbolizes early American life.

These boards were originally part of the ell portion of this 19th century barn. While most portions of the barn were in very good condition, it had to be disassembled due to severe foundation issues. Liz was able to salvage a lot of this beautifully weathered lumber and bring it’s stories back to life through reuse in new projects.

The history of Guyette Farm stretches across centuries and nations. The  property was originally owned by the Gloyd family, descendants of one of the royal tribes of Wales. During the late 1930s, Joseph Gloyd’s grandson sold the property to Arthur Guyette, who farmed with the help of his sons, Harry and Merrill. On April 22, 2008, Evelyn Guyette gifted this 107-acre farm to the Franklin Land Trust to honor Harry, her late husband.
