A few weeks ago we introduced you to Project Stream, a console we were working on for our first corporate client. We just delivered it on Friday, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with how it turned out!
It’s fun to compare the model to the final version and think “hey look I made that thing exactly how I planned to”
I love all the wood tones that popped out when I stained this piece, it added an entire different dimension to the final product! (Sorry that we’re getting kind of a fish-eye effect on the photo- I’m still no photo editing master). You can see here that the console was designed specifically to suit the storage baskets.
Each shelf holds two baskets perfectly, and the wire basket style is such a great fit with the metal details. I went with a contrasting pipe finish for the drawer pulls, and I’m so happy I did. The dark metal on the vertical supports is a great contrast with the lighter metal on the threaded rods, baskets, and flanges.
The drawers have adjustable rods to accommodate different size files. Because this is for a graphic design/marketing team, they have a lot of printed materials, and this console was designed to fit all those materials. The drawers can either hold two rows of standard 8 1/2″ x 11″ hanging files, or one row of 11″ x 17″ files.
Just a few more fun detail shots because I love seeing the contrasted materials together.
This console was a bit of beast, so thank goodness for some brute strength (on Ben’s behalf), and a very good friend who served as an additional lackey to help me with delivery. It was no joke getting into the building, to the service elevator up to the 22nd floor, and between the cubicles. This isn’t the final resting place for the console, they still need a moving team to remove the old storage piece they had, so this bad boy is actually going to get a great view from a 22nd floor window! And I get to wave every time I drive by Midtown.
