One of Brisbane’s Leading Interior Designer Companies commissioned us to make furniture for Hayman Island on the Whitsunday Islands.

Consisting of a collection of Four poster beds, stone top dining rooms tables, Lobby seating shaped like Boats, desks and side tables, all made of a mixture of different timbers and finishes.

There was also a large amount of custom upholstery work involved in this project, the Canopy over each four poster bed had to sit just right and flow down each post and each four poster bed had upholstery sides and foot head.

There were also four custom chairs completed in White leather for the foyer area.

It was great project to work on , and all our clients involved are very happy with the end results.

Here are some pieces in progress on the workshop floor.

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.

Built In Fireplace for Apartment Living

We installed this stunning fireplace. The fireplace is controlled by remote and has built in speakers for sound. It is run by electricity and water and we had to install all of this and needed to remove a wall.

To give the top section a floating look and feel we needed to build a inner support from steal and suspend this from the ceiling,  the steal gives strength to the top section. The apartment is very high up and strong winds can be known to blow in and this added to the brief to make this unit extra sturdy, as it is close to the balcony doors.

We covered the interior columns with 24 carat gold leaf which add a warmth and glow to the living area. When the morning light comes through onto the columns a beautiful golden glow fills the whole living area.

The owner is extremely happy with the level of detail and installation.

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.
