Blanton Museum Gift Shop

Blanton showcase

The Gift shop needed White Oak jewelry display stands in the style of the architecture and cabinetry....

In the shape of cones, discs, chunks,  and cubes - in linen and  white oak.

Fall 2009 Museums & More Magazine: Beautiful new jewelry cases motived the Gift Shop team to come up with a new visual merchandising plan.

"We had a local woodworking artist design oak fixtures to match the wood tone of the cases.  then we lined the cases with soft celery linen and created linen cones

for necklaces ....."

Evans Project

 Privacy Fence

The Evans home  is a very modern structure -  built on a cliff in the Northwest Hills.

The project started with a wall to wall shelving system for the Weaving Room.

Downstairs a home entertainment center equipment cabinet  was built to fit a long list of components.

A Living Room niche cabinet held the cable box, newspapers and magazines.

Outside of the guest bedroom - a Privacy Screen Fence made of ipe was built to spare the guests from a view of the neighbor's drive way....
