Both of these clients needed functional yet stylish custom cabinetry solutions. In the first project, we designed a custom entertainment center to artfully house a TV and sound system. Speakers are easily accessible behind the drawers, where we used antique furnace grates as inserts on the fronts to allow the sound to filter through. The fireplace also got a makeover in beautiful chunky stone complemented by a boxy wood mantel. The second client disliked how the nondescript fireplace they purchased at a big box store looked on the blank wall. They also needed extra storage for their immense book collection. We solved both problems by designing a custom bookcase/fireplace surround. The top of the surround follows the angle of the ceiling, and the detail at the peak complements the hexagon window.
