Through good fortune, Metrik was asked to provide various furniture pieces over a period of 5 years, for a working fishing lodge in County Cork, Ireland. The main photo of the tower is perhaps worth clicking on, then expanding (button on top right of photo) for lovers of things old, or Irish….
A few of the pieces are shown here:
The door of the Norman period tower, built to duplicate the existing door upon which time had taken its toll. Hardware was re-used, with the exception of new iron nails and bolts.
Materials: Reclaimed quarter-sawn Douglas fir, dyed with a traditional chemical process, but uncoated.
Other pieces are: one of a pair of Oak tables inspired by the Norman tower beside the lodge, a White Oak writing table, a Walnut sideboard in the dining room, a large kitchen armoire with curved shelves behind copper mesh doors.
All the design work in conjunction with the client, with specific details for some pieces shared between Erik and Shannon McLeod.
