Bowling Lane Island

Leave it to Liz to find a bowling lane and think kitchen island! At nearly 7 feet, this island has industrial metal legs, a shallow bottom shelf, and of course, an original toe line. Bowling balls not included…

Custom Tripod Lamp

Custom Order

This was an especially fun project- Our client came to us in hopes that we could combine her son’s love of theatre and photography in a lamp that would be traveling with him to college. That will be one unique dorm room!
Liz seamlessly combined a vintage tripod and a stage light to create an adjustable lamp that is both sleek and industrial.  Some new hardware was added to link the two and the stage light was rewired for easy use. This is a perfect example of taking beloved vintage pieces and tweaking them for accessibility, all while allowing them to be true to their past lives.
62″ at full height, 5″ x 4″ stage light.

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.”
