If you have been following Plastolux you will know that we moved into a new house and are slowly getting things in order. The nursery and the master bedroom are the last rooms that need attention. In our master bedroom we are currently using stools for nightstands. I realize that there is nothing wrong with using stools for night stands but I needed something with storage. Our design style is a mix of mid century and current modern. The only other furniture that we plan on keeping in our bedroom is a really nice teak dresser.
I spent some time looking around for the perfect solution. Nothing really fit the bill for me so I got in contact with the one guy that I knew could make my random designs come to life. This is where my friend Matt Eastvold comes into the project. You may remember our last adventure. Make sure to click “read more” to see the design and some of the first pieces.
My design inspiration comes from the timeless designs of Florence Knoll. I have always loved her square geometric tables.
I simply closed up the bottom making a square frame from metal tubing. For the storage solution I liked the idea of having a drawer or a cubby or both. I wanted the drawer or cubby to feel as though they had been extruded from the top of the table. Both storage solutions will be inset inside the width of the metal tubing frame.
The frames will be powder coated and the drawers or cubbies can be done in a mixture of colors or woods. You will have to excuse my not so accurate drawings, the perspective is pretty wonky.
The first raw frames
The frames in their new glossy white powder coats. The next post will give us a look into the wood parts of the tables.
