From This to This

The process of creating  beautiful and unique furniture and accessories is often a mystery to most designers.  Marla is shown at a furniture factory in Bali which looks more like the aftermath of a hurricane than a showroom.  We found some great tables and benches in this chaos and shipped them to our warehouse in Denver to sell to our customers. We love how the tables and consoles look once we opened our container!

We hunted for raw-edge slab tables in small workshops in the Bali Highlands. The hard work paid off as the finished tables really look great. They are now in our warehouse and Denver Design District showroom.  These are made from Suar Wood.

I spent a lot of time in Northern Thailand looking for interesting pieces of old wood to make lamps out of.  We made some very cool floor lamps using old wood and halogen bases for up-lighting.

Marla and I found this old 19th century Burmese Buddha pavilion in an old Chiang Mai house. It was very similar to one we saw at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, as well as in the Doris Duke collection of South-East Asian Art. We had to have it. We are selling the Buddha pavilion and the 19th Buddha separately. Please contact me at dickgentry@wescofabrics.com if you would like more information.
