The client brief was a image off Collette Dinnigan sitting in front of a Mirror display unit.

The Client said Matthew “I want something like this , but without the mirrors and to fit into this space, and I want to keep the antique table as it is a special piece to me”.

So I designed this bookcase that fits between two brick walls, made from a mix of solid French walnut and veneer.

There as two small doors at each side as well as a mix of adjustable shelves and fixed shelves, the door knobs are also made by hand from French walnut.

Our client is over the moon happy with their new display bookcase, and it looks like it has always been there.

 

Home Office Storage, Filing, Display unit

We built this home office from an empty space in the apartment of the Abian Apartments in the city. We made the zen style sliding doors from French Walnut and used fabric inserts to allow air flow. The sliding doors allow a divide between the office space and home space. The owner was very specific about needing filing cabinets and cupboard storage. We used French Walnut and created fun nooks in the centre for display objects.

We worked with Wrightson Stewart Interiors to design the space.

The owner is very happy with how the office space was created and we will be making a desk to complete the space.

Dressing Room in the Sky

We were asked to turn one of the bedroom spaces in the Abian Apartments into a walk-in dressing room. There needed to be a sensational space to display handbags and shoes and it needed to be protected by glass. We decided to add LED lighting to highlight the viewing. We used American Cherry Solid timber and veneer to create all the shelving, doors, sliding draws, jewelry pocket draws, hanging spaces and mirrored sliding doors. We also covered the interior column with 24 carat gold leaf which really adds a glamorous feel to the whole room.

The owner is over the moon with their new dressing space and highly complimented our level of detail.

We worked with the interior designers Wrightson Stewart Interiors on this project.

Our clients both work from home and wanted an office environment that had style and was welcoming for them everyday. The brief was to make it modern but also very simple and practical. We used a Satin Black Laminate for the top and edged and made drawers from Solid Spotted Gum. The leg design was a way to create something interesting and eye catching, two tone legs in the Satin Black Laminate and the Spotted Gum also. The desk allows alot of space and legroom for more than 2 people if required. The legs are definitely a feature of the office. Our clients love their new workspace.

Our client was looking to create a warm and timeless feeling in their bedroom and wanted a very supportive and comfortable headboard that created a feature rather than just a bedhead.

We created this look with the blue hue and installed all the lighting fixtures for easy access, and they are very happy with the final look, feel and comfort of the final product.

 

Restoring and polishing brings new life to well loved furniture

Our client wanted their well loved furniture restored to bring new life into their living rooms. We carefully rechromed, repolished, reparied and age-painted and varnished to remove the wear and tear and revive and refresh creating a fresh feel in the apartment.

On one piece the procedure was very time consuming due to the very flat and full grain finish.

Our team also aged the Lounge chairs and coffee table, in a blue/white wash finish.

Our team of French Polishers did an exceptional job and the client is very happy with the final results.
