Describe the project, what makes it unusual, and/or any outstanding characteristics.
An engineering feat to float a 12’ wide x 2’ deep desk, this is what our homeowners requested. As an artist, this homeowner required the workspace for her projects, but her artistic eye did not like the idea of legs beneath her cabinet. So, float it we did! This is a fairly small project, yet very large desk. The oversized printer is tucked to the side with ample storage in the large drawers below. The oversized desk spans 12’ and includes 3 large drawers without sacrificing knee space. The floating ledges above the desk provide the owner with display space for her completed and in work projects. The door style and finish on this cabinetry was custom to match existing cabinetry in the home. The countertop finish is a custom tonor created by us, that accentuates the Maple grain with a contemporary blue/gray tone.
