Kelly Caron Designs

Charleston Forge - Sunday, June 07, 2015
One of our favorite aspects of social media is when customers and designers use it to share with us our furniture in their living space. Whether it is a Charleston Forge piece that has been loved for over 20 years, or a freshly designed space featuring a new Charleston Forge item, we always want to hear your story.  
Designer Kelly Caron recently sent us these images showing a lovely room from a home in the coastal town of Hilton Head, SC.  And there is our Oculus Table, in the center of everything. We love it! This is what the designer had to say about the home...

"This Hilton Head Plantation home was in need of new furnishings. My clients who moved to the island from New York were not interested in the typical coastal chic look. Instead they wanted something more bold and edgy to compliment their personal taste. I selected every furniture piece, fabric, and accessory to have a purpose in the space and to balance throughout. We found the Oculus cocktail table and designed the table to be a custom size perfect for the living room space. The clean lines and open feel allow the perfect practical touch in the space and the glass allows the custom rug design to showcase through."

"Chalk it up" to Great Design

Charleston Forge - Monday, May 11, 2015
Behind every piece of art there is an artist.  Behind every artist there is a story. It is the story within the artist that gives them inspiration and unharnesses their imagination, allowing them to create those things that astonish us and move us.  Here at Charleston Forge, our designers, our engineers, and our factory team are all artists.  We so love sharing our stories, our artists and their inspiration with you.  We want you to know the story behind our furniture, so when someone asks, "where did you find that lovely piece”,  you don't simply tell them where you bought it, you can add, “ And let me tell you the story behind it”…

John Winer, the designer behind our Omega Tables,  designs furniture with the detail usually reserved for fine art.  His goal is to share with the world gorgeous ironwork.  He has accomplished this with outstanding texturing and joinery in each of his pieces.  

With the expansion of our Omega tables, introduced at the April 2015 Market, John Winer came into the factory to work with our team.  They worked on the hammering details in the twist and the taper in the leg, also scale of each new occasional table.  John uses chalk on the concrete floor in the factory to work out ideas that are buzzing around in his mind. 



It helps John to draw his designs out on the concrete floor with chalk to give him visual of the scale and detail of the piece. 







John speaks to Andrew Beekman, Charleston Forge's General Manager and Engineer, about his expectations of the new Omega Occasional Tables. 







John works with Charlie and Ellis on improving technique on the twist and taper of the Omega leg.
