funky furniture for atlanta hospital playroom

we have joined forces with hks to create some funky furnishings for atlanta's scottish rite hospital "end zone" playroom. similar to our work at cook children's hospital in fort worth, we created a hockey stick chandelier. the nhl, a big sponsor of the hospital, donated hockey sticks representing each team. they also contributed sticks which were used in the all-star game in atlanta last year. sconces were made out of all-star souvenir hockey sticks, too. we designed and created a wonderful skateboard table. it has a powder coated red steel frame and skate wheels that really spin attached to the legs. the top of the table is made of stylish skateboard decks. here are some pictures taken in our studio before delivery. hopefully we can show you more when they are installed in atlanta.

custom hardware

here is a custom hardware project we created in collaboration with interior designer, tiffany farha, and builder, tony ferraro. we designed and manufactured the hardware for every door in the entire house. many doors were antique so we had to retrofit each lever.

you might have noticed different finials in the pictures. during the design process, we gave them many finial options and they loved them all, so we used different finials for different parts of the house. the hardware was cast in bronze with an antique satin nickel finish.

this project took one year to design and six months to manufacture. all the sculpting, molds and waxes were done in our studio. this project is proprietary.
