Sneak Peak for Next Year!

Sometimes our shop has its quiet moments when we are waiting in between coats of finish or powder-coating. Whenever that happens, if we aren't working on the business or other logistical things, we fit in some quality design time. As never-fully-content designers, we have a tendency to revisit our designs to make modifications. Coming in the beginning of the new year, we have some new and re-thought pieces to (re)introduce!

Here's a little glimpse into our reconfigured Partial Coffee Table, which was actually one of our first designs as 2point54.

In our original iteration we stuck closer to the proportions of the Impartial Bench. The dimensions worked lovely alongside the Impartial, but did not fully fill out a space on its own. We've changed around the measurements, giving it a greater presence and balance. 

While working on the redesign we also finessed our ebonizing solution on maple and will be making the finish available across all of our products. The finish leaves the grey-blue hue of stormy ocean weather without hiding the natural grain of the hardwood. The nature of the stain is to reveal itself after application, often times bringing out aspects of the maple you do not see with the classic Tung oil finish. 

We will be sure to keep you posted on each of the new designs as we finish them up!
