I had a client that was into Japanese furnishings and she introduced me to Tansu Chests. In the spirit of Tansu, I designed and made these Cherry pieces for a guest suite. Bathroom vanity, tub surround, shower fascia, window seats and a kind size bed. The grilled headboard above is the "tansu" bed. In my research I discovered that the light that passes through shoji screens resembles moonlight, so I let in shoji paper behind the grille and placed a light behind the headboard to wash that soft light over the bed linens.
We designed and built this Victorian style Library for this Flemington New Jersey Painted Lady. Cherry wood, Leather top desk, Turned Pilasters, Panelled Walls & Cabinets 10' celings.
This Library was removed from a brownstone in NYC and we had to retrofit it to the new library in this custom designed home in Far Hills New Jersey. We had to make new panels and egg & dart molding to match the existing panels. Cedar and shellac proved to be the best match.
I built this Oak Fireplace and Bookcase Wall for a client who moved a lot. They asked if I could make feet for the cabinet built-ins so that they could take them with them if they moved. Sure enough, 4 months after I built the wall, they sold the house and took the cabinets with them. The new homeowners contracted with me to build replacements. That's what I call a "win-win"!
