Remember the plans for the inglenook fireplace benches we showed off last week? They're all done, and they look great.
As you may remember from our last post, the home had an original Craftsman-style fireplace, but the benches on either side had been removed. The space looked forlorn without them.
We drew up a plan for new benches with a stepped-in trim detail to mimic the fireplace. Our 3D design was very helpful to the homeowner. It helped her visualize what she wanted, and she made a few minor changes to the height and depth of the piece.
The new benches integrate seamlessly with the home, and they look like they've always been there. You couldn't get this from store-bought furniture.
It was a pleasure to restore this stately fireplace to its original glory.
If you'd like to have a pair of fireside benches in your home, please drop us a line. We'll be happy to design something that looks like it belongs there.
