The title "Ebony Wedge Buffet" says it all. This server speaks with it's contemporary styling and plain geometric shapes. The ebony wedges rest on each end of the birdseye maple base and support it's glass top. It is a clean design with no visible hardware. The doors open by touch latch and the drawers open via a groove on the side. The glass top allows you to put things on it right out of the oven. Bon appetit!
The design of this credenza was inspired by the Mayan temples of Chichen Itza in what is now Mexico. The central gold leaf band emulates the steps that climb the sloping facade of the pyramid. The fiddleback makore veneer creates a waterfall effect that flows from one panel to the next. The pulls are solid brass. The base and top border are ebonized maple. The top itself is birdseye maple.
Whenever we are asked to engineer unusual functions or integrate unique objects or materials into a piece the result is referred to as a "specialty item". In the case of this shell table our client had been given an extensive collection of shells from a friend and neighbor."The shell collection itself is not that valuable but the neighbor and the memories are." Therefore, we set out to design a table that would showcase the shells while still providing a functional coffee table. Each individual shell rests upon a black lacquer faceted pedestal arranged in a balanced geometric pattern. The radiused book and butt walnut burl aprons wrap around each side and join the carved and gold leafed legs. An inset glass top lies flush with the aprons and is removed via a concealed "lifting block".
This dining table incorporates a variety of exotic veneers and hardwoods such as radiused zebra wood aprons with rosewood beading, sketch and patterned curly maple top, and mahogany legs with ebonized boots. Each corner block is hammered for texture and gold leafed.
This buffet was designed by Woodleaf Studios to compliment the client's existing dining room furniture from Century. The buffet incorporates lion head ring pulls, black lacquer engaged pilasters with gold leaf capital, and base elements. The primary door and drawer panels are banded with ebonized bead. The unusually deep niche allowed for an elevated upper tier at the rear for additional serving surface.
High gloss black lacquer surfaces are accented with gold leafed capital and base elements. The lectern's facade and body is lightly ebonized cherry.
