Mud Room Cabinets for Historical House

Mud Room Cabinets for a Historical House

Mud room cabinets for a historic house in Traverse City, Michigan.  The pair of painted cabinets flank a new door and Mud Room Cabinetssidelights that I designed for the project.  The renovation included an entirely new back porch entrance and mud room.  Ekocite Architecture of Royal Oak MI developed the plan and exterior details based on the existing structure.  The door, sidelights, and the cabinets were developed from the beautiful existing moulding details in this important Victorian house. Built in 1900 for the founder of one Traverse Citys first banks, the house took seven (7) years to complete.

Modern Ash Side Table

Modern Ash Side Table

Modern ash side table or one night stand in solid White Ash.   Designed for the right-hand side of the bed. Featuring two Modern Ash Side Tabledrawers above a single door. The grain was carefully planned to fall continuously across the drawer and door faces. The table conceived in the French modernist style of the 1940’s.  The top is cantilevered on a hidden steel support embedded into vertical support on the right-hand side.  The design for the table was inspired by two important early 20c Architects, Pierre Chareau from France and Eileen Gray an Irish designer who spent most of her life working in France. The table dimensions are 24″width x 16″ deep x 29″ height.

Built-in Room Divider

Painted room divider featuring stain glass windows. The cabinet was designed to create a visual display case for the client and to let light thru to the stairwell behind it.  The windows were selected from their collection of antique stain glass window’s that they had acquired over the years.

The neo-classical style cabinet features a cornice that rests on four columns that are headed by Capitals I designed based on 9c Temple Mayan Temple of Turtles in Yucatan Mexico. The columns are traced with delicate 3/16″ walnut bead moulding.  The Walnut bead moulding was also used to fix the stain glass window’s in place.  The idea of using the walnut was to mimic the lead framing used in the construction of the antique windows.  The cabinet is finished identically on the reverse side.
