Kelly’s Picks from Current Artisans on CustomMade

Kennebunkport LoveseatKennebunkport Loveseat
Made by Alfred’s Upholstery & Co. of Alfred’s Upholstery & Co. in East Waterboro, ME

What a cozy place to snuggle up with the little ones and a stack of picture books! This shelter-style loveseat is so well-proportioned, and the indigo upholstery fabric is on-trend, yet will never look dated. It is fundamentally a traditional piece, with its dressmaker skirt and subtle rolled arm, but the clean lines of the bench seat cushion and tight back give it flexibility to work with a variety of styles.

Made by Gary Barcus of G. B. Woodworking in Norwood, MA

The difference between a ho-hum “builder’s special” mantel and one with custom, carved detail is huge. This mantel features traditional styling with Georgian influences, but the seahorses give it a bit of a ‘wink,’ and a distinctive air for a slightly more refined coastal home.

Home And Business Portraits Celebrate SuccessHome And Business Portraits Celebrate Success
Made by Joe Gallant of Joseph Gallant Fine Art in New Hamburg, ON

Send this maker a picture of your house, and he’ll render it in delicate watercolor for a uniquely personal work of art to adorn your walls. How cool is that?

Cabinet HardwareCabinet Hardware
Made by Stewart Smith of Stewart Patterns in New Hamburg, ON

Decorative hardware can totally elevate a kitchen, vanity, or piece of furniture. I’m not a big DIYer (ok, I’m not a DIYer at all…not even a little), but changing cabinet knobs and pulls is even within my abilities. I’m just smitten with these brass pulls, to add a bit of Hollywood Regency glamour to your Ikea.

Hepplewhite Chest Of DrawersHepplewhite Chest Of Drawers
Made by Mark Pothen of M Allen Wood Works LLC in North Saint Paul, MN

I can’t help but swoon over this elegant, yet sturdy Hepplewhite chest. Even though it is a brand new, custom made piece, it has the appearance and quality of an heirloom antique, complete with rosette hardware and drawer locks. Don’t forget to zoom in and check out the incredible fan inlay on the apron.

36"" Staccato Chandelier In Teal With Nickel Hardware36″” Staccato Chandelier In Teal With Nickel Hardware
Made by Rebecca Zhukov of Providence Art Glass in Providence, RI

Although my style leans toward traditional, I love incorporating modern elements to add a little interest and tension – especially when they also contribute a splash of color to my projects. The hand-blown turquoise glass shades on this stunner are vibrant, yet also feel organic. I picture this over a cozy, white-walled breakfast nook in a breezy, shingled seaside cottage.
