We are often contacted by interior designers who are after something really specific for a project they are working on. Quite often the deadline is really tight! But recently we were contacted by a designer in London who wanted a small table for a particular kitchen space he was designing and we were able to give a really short turn around in just under 4 weeks. Sometimes a designer will provide us with just a sketch – which is fine, we can work our way through drawings and ideas between us to reach something we are really happy with. This time everything was done for us – from kitchen layout to CAD drawings and a before picture. It was really hard to imagine how the finished space would look from this picture….I am so glad the designer could see what we couldn’t!
The table needed to allow easy movement into banquette style seating, so bench seating on two sides, and for chairs that would that would push under table on the other sides. The overall dimensions were L140cm x W90cm x H75.5cm. The table top would have an angled edge and the two pedestal legs would be turned with a diameter of 9cm. It was also important to be able to take the base and top into the house separately and attach them together once on site because access to this London house was quite limited. This is something that we always ask about right at the beginning with clients, to make sure we can deliver easily on the day. Some of our tables are huge and unbelievably heavy, so it is important to get this bit right…we learned this lesson the hard way very early on in our business!
So everything went smoothly in the making of the table and Ezra was able to personally deliver the order for our client. And as is my usual custom I follow up any delivery with a last email or call to ensure our client is happy with everything. I always ask for pictures too and this time we were well rewarded. Before and after pictures – what a difference a designer makes!
“We’re delighted with the table – it is beautiful and just right for the space…..delivery all worked out really well and we will be in the market at some point in the future for some dining room chairs and a larger, circular dining table….so we will be in touch in due course!”
