Furniture designer John Davis from Roanoke, Virginia was crossing an ancient arched stone bridge over a rushing stream in Sweden when he felt inspired to interpret the scene into a console for Charleston Forge.
It was a grey day, cloudy and misting but the shape of that bridge piped rays of beauty into his imagination. Instantly he knew that the frame finish had to be done in our hand-rubbed antique silver, reflecting the character of that day.
The path over the bridge was covered in fine small ebony colored stones, the likes of which he had never seen. So, he directed the solid maple top of the console to be a soft, alligator skin texture in our hand applied, ebony finish. Mission accomplished, a magnificent console, inspired by ancient shapes, interpreted into modern form.
It's so much fun working with artists. The imagination they have and the stories they tell either drive you crazy or inspire you to new heights! Thank you John, you're certainly taking us to new heights!!
