Custom Table Design

My creative career began in Los Angeles, California working with a luxury furniture designer (his tables sell for $20k). You can read the story here.

I traveled between Los Angeles and High Point, North Carolina for international furniture, accessory and design markets setting up his showrooms and designing mannequins to reflect the lifestyle galleries in which he showed his collections. He was the first to show furniture from this consumer-focused perspective.

This year, I began designing custom pieces for a design colleague. Here are my mesquite and iron tables that flows with a contemporary southwestern home remodel. The living room features furniture with Ralph Lauren textiles, a Thayer Coggin couch, Organic Looms custom area rug and other delicious surprises decorate this gated mountain-side estate.

Modern Monday: Green Drama

Modern Monday starts with my kind of action; dining room drama. A long table with plenty of seating is a perfect invitation for harmony, discord, laughter, tears and sometimes song all revolving around human connectivity during meals.

This wood and stone table is dressed with identical green chairs and tall vases of flowers that touch the whimsical white floral chandeliers that dance in a uneven line of light. A gigantic piece of art and a greenery coiffed fireplace set the mood. Notice the grey walls and light wood herringbone floors. Via AD.

Modern Monday: Harmonic Transition

Modern Monday transitions us into fall with this elegant, moody and sculptural room with warm hues of brown. Walnut, maple, acorn and limestone flavors comprise this monochromatic space full of texture and dimension.

Take another look at the wall paneling, ceiling and staircase. Black is judiciously utilized to frame the fireplace and for the staircase railing. One of the key elements of setting the mood of this room is the lighting. It is placed in key areas to produce a seductive flow of illumination overhead, along the staircase steps and below staircase curve and above the fire. Lighting is silent and powerful.

Grab a blanket, a warm beverage of choice and snuggle up next to the fire. The season is starting.

Modern Monday: Striking Deco

Modern Monday features this striking black and white Paris apartment with Swedish Art Deco red chair and piano. This space is simple, but curated with distinctive pieces that bring style, interest and harmony. Via Architectural Digest.

Modern Monday: Metallic Harvest Gold

Modern Monday celebrates the lush harvest gold velvet lounges of Coast in BC. These space has a succulent, moody vibe with joyous overtones.

The color is opulent yet welcoming. The metallic gold surfaces on the base of the furniture, accent tables and chandelier lighting reflect the light like rays of sun. The metallic wall panels infuse more color, texture and visual interest further accented by the placement of lighting.

This is a must stop while you are in B.C. Luxury design at its finest.

Modern Monday: Luscious Velvet

Modern Monday’s space is this scrumptious blue velvet deep sectional flanked by light grey textured walls and plush carpet with dark harvest gold velvet chair and globe lighting fixture. The dimensional mirror brightens and broadens the room for the finishing dramatic effect. Bold, simple statements can make a room personalized and finished. Via Arcadian Home.

Modern Monday: Red Rush

Modern Monday features this contemporary space with a noticeably red tufted, velvet sectional in a room with hints of antiquity and rustic charm.

The red sectional is a cherry red versus a poppy, vibrant red which makes this bold hue a bit more refined. The composition is fresh and exciting since it breaks the traditional functional lines of sectional furniture. Sometimes all a room needs is a new composition of its furniture layout.

The charm of this room also lies in the unfinished wall. It looks like an unfinished concrete slab that once hosted wallpaper or some other type of semi-permanent wall covering before featuring this global map. The peeling, scraping and/or extraction of history for present exposure is raw, authentic and stylish. The floor-to-ceiling windows are graced with elegant and flowing drapes which juxtapose the harshness of the wall.

The unknown room designers also mix sculpture, occasional tables, consoles and vintage objects to harmonize the mix of contemporary versus vintage, masculine versus feminine. This room is bold yet soft. Serene and energetic. Every space has soul and style. It is all about harmony.

Modern Monday: Powerful Pink Pastel

Modern Monday features this contemporary pastel dining room. Although the main color combination is white and pink, the dynamic custom mural with periwinkle, sage, yellow and black brings depth, excitement and strength to this space. The identical chandeliers break from tradition in placement. The simplicity yet complexity of this room is seriously crush-worthy. Via Erikakarpak.

Modern Monday: Milan Milieu

Modern Monday travels to Milan. A chocolate shop and bistro no less. The citron chairs with walnut legs seem to effortlessly complement the brass accents on the table bases and countertop. The two-toned marble floors play with the theme of duality. The high ceilings feature a subtle texture. The dark window frames perfectly accent the chandelier and sconces. All elements combined make this space elegant, inspiring and fun.

Modern Monday: Mediterranean Skies

Modern Monday transports us to the crisp azure isles of the Mediterranean with this white, cobalt and sky blue room.

Although the color combination is simple, the visual impact is high. The architectural details that encompass the shapes, patterns and moulding in the archway plus the smooth wall textures leave the eye wanting more. Did you see the slight difference in the wall whites and textures midway down?

The furniture and accessories repeat the color, shapes and pattern found throughout. Did you notice how the area rugs perfectly repeat the colors, textures and symbols found in the furniture?

This room exemplifies how a seemingly simple color combination can be visual rich and dynamic.
