Danish Modern Inspired Wall Unit + Mantel
Project: Design + Fabrication of a Danish Modern Inspired Wall Unit / Entertainment Center with a wrap-around Fireplace Mantel.
Goal: Our clients trusted our artistic vision, which is always a nice way to work. They let us know their wants and needs and sent us off to the drawing board, excited to see what we'd come up with. We saw this project as an opportunity to design a wall sized work of art. We really enjoy mid-century homes and Danish Modern furnishings, and aimed to build something that, when installed, would appear native to the home. Hand sculpted legs are a statement feature that allowed us to incorporate strong, yet graceful, curves -- a signature styling of an Able + Baker original!
Beautiful Walnut grain with a pop of orange. Should the client find themselves in the mood for a change, the orange panels are easily reversible (Walnut on opposite).
We applied numerous coats of orange until we got the finish just right. Sand, paint, repeat. Sand, paint, repeat...
Applying our standard eco friendly, non toxic, No-VOC finish.
Building solid walnut dovetailed drawers.
Sculpting the legs...
