This custom made furniture was a client's request to modify our 'grate' coffee table into a desk. Needing a higher and wider surface, we designed this uber-cool eclectic desk.
As the grate coffee table, the desk was intentionally created with the goal of blending different styles. With hints of west coast, modern and industrial styles, this design is a very unique and interesting piece. Rough edges, straight vertical and horizontal lines as well as up-cycled materials are just a few of the characteristics that make this design original.
The mahogany was treated with a hard wax-oil finish, a food-safe product that enriches the natural colours of the wood. The base, metal, was treated with a special acrylic patina, a treatment that gives the base an industrial look. The salvaged material is a vintage reclaimed cast iron floor grate which provided the inspiration for this piece.
The dimensions are 39"L x 29"W X 19"H.
