Vintage Cafeteria Table

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

I love this cafeteria table, recently featured on Three Potato Four.  I want one for my studio!

Exquisitely executed re-fabrication of an original vintage industrial cafeteria table. Constructed of heavy cast iron (cast from original forms), table features reclaimed wood tabletop and round swivel-out stools made of mixed hardwoods (wood is unfinished, allowing you to stain in any finish you wish). Available as both 12-seater, as shown and 8-seater.

Kirei Board: why we love it

Monday, March 8th, 2010

Today I’m working on a design for a shelving unit that spans two steel columns and features one of my favorite materials – Kirei Board.

Kirei Board is a strong, lightweight, durable, environmentally friendly substitute for wood.  Manufactured from reclaimed sorghum straw and bound with a formaldehyde-free adhesive, Kirei Board is a lovely material for furniture, cabinetry, casework and a variety of interior design elements.  Kirei comes in several sizes, ranging from 6 to 30 millimeters in thickness.  I love the pattern and texture it presents, and requires only a simple coat of wax to finish.

The shelving unit that I’m working on will feature Kirei Board slabs bolted to a raw steel framework, which, in turn, will be welded to existing exposed steel columns.  This assembly sits in a double-height space adjacent to a dining area, which is home to a steel table finished with a Kirei Board top.  I’ll be sure to post images of the finished piece!
