The clients up in Old Greenwich requested a marble top console for their screened in porch. This is an area that they entertain quite heavily in, and they needed a year round piece of furniture that would function as a dry bar.
The piece that MR CALL DESIGNS created was based off of two vintage French pieces. The first piece had a great metal base with canted legs. This solution was particularly ingenious because it added just enough "design punch" without increasing the materials or labor substantially. The second piece had an awesome marble top. Since the top was going to have more impact than the base, we wanted to invest the majority of visual interest here. The addition of a bracketed shelf gives the piece more stature and function than a typical console.
Creating custom furniture at MR CALL DESIGNS is a part of the service that we offer all clients. While we like to use "off the rack" furnishings...sometimes it is essential to make something specifically to fit the unique needs of the client.
