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.

Color and creativity energizes the factory when a custom design rolls through assembly with a mix of bright colors, fabrics or even animal skins and prints. It takes all tastes and every kind of decor to make this big world go 'round. Charleston Forge loves to fill these fun custom requests from our designers. And sometimes, our photographer is strolling through the factory and finds them completed, just as they are ready to be shipped.
Whatever colorful and wild idea you can think up, we can help make it a reality.
