Staying home from your beach vacation this year? I've got something just for you!
This summer we brought a tropical vibe 🌺🌴🦩 right here to the mountains of Asheville with a contemporary home theater that beautifully balances pops of color against a neutral palette.
This may be our prettiest project ever, especially if you love the color orange.
The central feature of this entertainment center is a pair of rolling doors which supported two graphic posters provided by our clients.
The doors were mounted in front of a niche over a long gas fireplace. They hung from a track and could be rolled open to reveal a television.
The middle niche was already painted orange on the inside, which made for an interesting surprise when the doors were opened.
To the left and right of the fireplace area, we designed two contemporary bookcases which we proportioned to repeat the existing design elements in the room.
With these little drawings, it's hard to get a visual for how big this project really was. You can get a better idea when you see it staged in our big outdoor spray booth.
The actual art which our customers supplied for the doors was even more interesting than the "placeholder" in our design.
It's a pair of exhibition posters by a famous German graphic artist, who inscribed them to the homeowners.
The end result looks like it's always been part of the room, which is our goal with custom furniture. That's what sets our furniture apart from mass-produced pieces: our design process allows us to tweak every element until it looks right at home.
And what a beautiful home it is! The books and CDs in the bookcases add a nice textural element against all that white.
I can't wait to see which sculptures the homeowners put on the glass shelves. They have an extensive art collection, so I'm sure it will be something striking.
Although many of our custom home theaters are in a Shaker or traditional style, we can also create a streamlined contemporary look for modern architecture. Call us today to get a custom cabinet that suits your style.
