This table is a fantastic example of the sort of handmade custom furniture we spend our days making here at Cannon Hill. Our clients approached us with a number of inspiration images, and we worked together to unify those images into a single table design. This project obviously draws heavily from the work of famous 20th-century furniture makers, but we endeavor to put our own twist on everything that goes out our door.
Even when we’re working from inspiration images that lay out a general aesthetic and specific detailing, our design process remains completely bespoke for each project. Clients who choose to work with us do so because they know that a Cannon Hill project is an opportunity to drill down into the elements of a piece of furniture that few other builders are willing or able to. If you’re going to invest the time and, let’s face it, money in a custom piece then you should take the opportunity to nail every detail.
When we build a custom table, which we do every day, each component is milled and handmade right here in our Boston workshop by skilled woodworkers. We don’t work from a catalogue or a library, and we don’t have predetermined cut lists, which allows us to develop a build process that’s suited specifically to the needs of each individual project. If a particular table needs a component that we’ve never made before, so be it; we have the freedom and the capability to fabricate everything we need in-house and on-demand.
The base of this table is a study in symmetry and angularity. Composed entirely of straight lines, there is an undeniable modernity existing alongside a stark simplicity, softened somewhat by the warm tones and natural, flowing grain of the black walnut components.
A base of this style is an excellent complement to a live-edge top, because it allows us to put a refined twist on the raw, natural effect that’s central to the live-edge. It’s important to us that our live-edge tables achieve the same degree of sophistication as everything else we build, so we take the time to create and execute just the right designs.
