One of our areas of particular expertise is designing custom furniture to meet our client’s requirements. Our client in this case was a supermodel who wanted an art deco dressing table but was too tall to feel comfortable using one. A particular challenge was the lady’s request that we incorporate swans into the design. We explained that the animals used as design motifs in art deco period pieces were sleek and elongated, and suggested that we use an ibis or a leopard. But the lady insisted on swans, so we designed the stylized, somewhat elongated ones on this piece.
The stool is also custom made to our design.
