At Architectural Justice we are passionate about creating spaces that make a statement. One of our favorite ways to accomplish this is through custom furniture. By creating custom pieces, we have the ability to manipulate the size, shape and style of a piece to fit perfectly into your home. Not to mention, custom furniture allows our designers and artisans to use their creativity to craft something that will be completely unique to you.
By collaborating amongst artisans, we’re able to design and build beautiful combination pieces, like this custom Acacia coffee table made with custom metalwork. The Acacia wood, responsibly sourced from Thailand by the Department of Transportation, is estimated to be at least 75 years old. The lumber began as two separate benches, but were later joined together with a metal inlay to create this functional piece of artwork.
From start to finish, many artisans may have their hands in the production process. For this piece, the process began by joining the two benches. Then, the wood was sanded down and any loose wood fibers were removed from the grooves. Next, the table was sprayed with a post catalyzed varnish which acts as a hardener and also enhances the color of the natural wood. After giving the varnish time to dry, the process was completed by fitting the table with a custom metal inlay in the seam of the two benches. Watch the video below to see this process!
