Customer Profile: Murray

Murray and his wife love classic movies of all types so much that when their kids moved out the house, they remodeled the two extra rooms into his and hers viewing rooms of their own M & M Theater. In both of the rooms you will find mint condition movie posters covering all the walls along with other movie memorabilia. To be able to enhance their custom theatre, Murray enlisted The Joinery to build custom pieces such as his most recent piece shown below, the M & M Theatre light box.

Murray had the front plate custom made and then brought it to us to create a Maple dovetailed box to go aorund it. This light box actually sits right on top of a Joinery bookcase.

Fresh on the Floor: Cantilever Desk

Fresh on the floor this week is our Cantilever Desk in Eastern Walnut with Aluminum Mission Pulls (not shown with Mission Pulls below). The Cantilever desk features a sleek design with a nod to mid-century modernism. The innovative design allows for quite a bit of storage, but "floating" the storage compartments gives the desk an element airiness. This piece retails for $3,784 in Eastern Walnut.

Cantilever Desk - Eastern Walnut

Other lumber options include cherry, maple, white oak, western walnut and madrone. If you would like to learn more about this piece, give us a call at 503.788.8547, or come by the showroom to see it in person.

Joinery Scrap Becomes Art

As many of you know, The Joinery can generate a lot of scrap wood. We try to use as much as we can with smaller projects like bread boards and J Boxes, but occasionally we have to sell the overflow. For $60, you can take home a large bin of scrap wood of various sizes. Often times you can find some really amazing pieces! Sometimes we wonder where those pieces go and what they become. A few of our customers have been gracious enough to share their works with us, and since we've enjoyed them so much, we feel the need to share these projects with everyone.

Spaces We Love - Lake Wenatchee House

While in our current "Heat wave" we thought it would be nice to feature a cool space. This retreat located on Lake Wenatchee, Washington is full of custom details that are not only unique but very functional. DeForest Architects and Theresa Benny Interior Design teamed up to create this modern yet comfortable cabin.

Wenatchee Cabin Living Room

The living room above doubles as a sleeping porch - the coves to the right are seating by day and sleeping nooks at night. The privacy created by having individual nooks is brilliant.

Design Trend - Color Blocking

One of the latest and easiest ways to implement design trends is color blocking. Color Blocking is the use of bold colors in interesting ways to add excitement to a space. The key to color blocking is bravely using BOLD colors. The trend is easy to implement because you don't have to use many colors, just enough to add interest.

Color Blocking Exterior

By painting the casing around the above door electric blue the architect has made what is already a focal point,  much more interesting and unique. Imagine how ordinary and expected black trim would be, not nearly the same impact. Very brave and well done! Definitely take a minute to see more pictures from this project here, and be sure to note the clever pull for this door.
