custom details: mad about metals

Our love of hand crafted metal has become a growing material of choice in our custom designs for clients.  Hand-forged iron, bronze, stainless steel and even pewter have been incorporated into interiors of late.  Here’s a peek at a few of our favorites…

rolled-iron-Bed

This rolled-steel bed finished with a zinc patina is a custom design of ours, in collaboration with Whetstone Workshop.  Currently in production, we expect to install in our client’s newly renovated master suite the Spring.

pewter-counter-tops

These pewter countertops are new to our library of materials.  We’re eager to incorporate them into a bar – inside or outdoors.  The pewter naturally patinas, providing even more character over time.

The installation of this newel cap at a taste-designed beach house in Little Compton, RI, crafted by Isaac Juodvalkis of Whetstone Workshop, is the perfect punctuation in a  modern coastal home for a young family.

Jay Christman masterfully designed this iron handrail transition and curve that’s a pleasure to use, while offering strong support up and down the stairs.  The delicate iron balusters bring a lightness to this small back stairway that may have been visually crowded with a wood handrail and balustrade.

family kitchen banquette

This table’s concave base in brushed stainless steel is a perfect fit in this bay window breakfast nook.  We paired the base with a locally crafted dining table top by Lorimer Workshop.

Stainless steel shelving lends a modern edge to this traditional all-white kitchen, one of our all time favorite kitchens and a frequently saved image on Houzz – 43,000 saves to idea books and counting…

How could you bring the character of metal into your home?  Be inspired!
