We’ve shared a few peeks on instagram, but today we wanted to walk you through our big current project, an oversized console for the Design team at a large real estate firm. The team creates a ton of incredible marketing material for each of their properties, and they are in a desperate need of a stylish space to store it.
The Design Director came to me with some inspiration (below), but what they really needed was a custom design to fit their space perfectly.
The wire baskets will store smaller books and handouts, but they could also really use drawers to house older materials and oversized project books. So here’s what we’re doing:
Thick planks will give them plenty of shelf space to store the loose wire baskets, and oversized drawers will each accommodate either two rows of 8 1/2″ x 11″ hanging files, or a row of 11″ x 17″ hanging files. We upped the industrial vibe that they’ve already got going in their office (see shelves in second photo, below) by incorporating large pipe drawer pulls and feet. Angle iron and flat stock metal will frame out the plank shelves to finish out the look.
This project is well under way, so hopefully we’ll have a fully finished update for you soon!
