A while ago we were contacted by a designer to create a bedroom set matching an empire chest of drawer.
I started by creating on sketchup the mirror and the bedside chests following the general layout and the bench
For the mirror and the bed side tables we turned the columns as 2 halves rectangular solid french walnut blanks glues together with paper, this way when the column is turned you can just split the paper and have perfect half columns.
The carcasses were made out of beech wood and poplar.
From France, we ordered some french walnut veneer for the skin as well as matching bronzes.
A bit of polish.
It was also the first project to receive the Edwards and Lejeune label.
The bench was upholstered by a french women in San Diego with horse hair, Laure de la chapelle
It was an interesting exercise to create a coherent set starting from an existing piece
