When people talk about real estate, location is the number one driver. Our client had a beautiful apartment overlooking millennium park and the lake, and wanted to add a few custom pieces to make their space even more stunning. The first piece, which has the best view, is a solid, walnut desk with room for two stools and storage in the middle. To add contrast, leather was installed on the top to provide a beautiful feature and also a great writing surface. The desk was then clear coated with a satin lacquer to show the beauty of the walnut. We don’t often get an opportunity to use exotic woods, but our client had their heart set on a zebra wood table that was 4 inches thick. The wood is the star in this table so we gave it a satin clear coat to make it pop. Two custom metal fabricated bases were made and powder coated black for durability.
