Kayne’s Picks from Current Artisans on CustomMade

1 Drawer Danish Modern Nightstand In Sappy Walnut1 Drawer Danish Modern Nightstand In Sappy Walnut (Item 1d639)
Made by Brian Hegerhorst of Furniture by Phoenix in Cascade, ID

This is a beautifully made and well-priced piece. These are the kind of custom pieces I love sharing with clients – beautiful design at an affordable price! This maker has some other beautiful pieces as well.

Cherry And Leather Counter StoolCherry And Leather Counter Stool
Made by Brian Hegerhorst of Martell Woodworks in Inverness, CA

This stool has a beautiful silhouette, and I love the exposed joinery and worn leather look.

Triple Return TableTriple Return Table
Made by David Gonzalez of David Gonzalez Sculpture in Dripping Springs, TX

Reclaimed wood tables with rough or “live” edges have been all the rage for a few years. I like this one because it gives a decorative, unexpected twist. The turquoise inlay fills the natural voids in the wood and really makes for a lovely statement – like butterfly joinery, but purely decorative. I would probably select a different leg style (more finished, and perhaps in metal) but the table surface is unique and interesting, a lovely find!

Modern CradleModern Cradle
Made by Jeff Thomas of Thomas Furniture Studio in Colorado Springs, CO

I’m always looking for beautifully designed children’s furniture, particularly items that aren’t too “juvenile”. This cradle is simple and beautiful. I love that he’s made it easy to disassemble so it can be passed from one generation to the next.

Tilly Tufted Linen Ottoman StoolTilly Tufted Linen Ottoman Stool
Made by Hammers Heels of Hammers And Heels in Oakland, CA

What a little cutie! I’m often looking for ottomans (to double as tables, stools, etc.) – basically, moveable furniture that can do double or triple duty. This is a playful, well-made piece that is easy to customize and available within 2-3 weeks of placing the order. Bravo!

36 Inch Branch Chandelier Custom Lighting Project36 Inch Branch Chandelier Custom Lighting Project
Made by Rebecca Zhukov of Providence Art Glass in Providence, RI

This is a beautiful, unique chandelier that would be fun to customize in terms of the length of the arms, as well as the glass color. A truly eye-catching fixture that would be amazing in an entryway, or over a dining room table.
