Privacy Screens [UPDATED]

Category : Client Furniture, Design · by Jan 2nd, 2017

Another day, another wild project. This time we’re working for a new MGM property in Las Vegas. It’s still in a very early stage of development, but we were contracted to design and build privacy, paravent screens for the first sample room review early this year. The word paravent, comes from the french (and naturally a french interior designer is specifying products for this hotel). A Paravent is literally defined as “a screen against a draft or the wind.” Luckily we just have to construct these to hide structural wall elements in the guest rooms. My designs, illustrations, and drawings will help us to manufacture the prototypes. I hope to have photos of the final products shortly and hopefully we’ll complete all 300-400 guest rooms in the near future as well.

This massive, 14 foot dining table recently shipped to our client. These projects are always a challenge for me to design and engineer. It’s always the components that you’re not supposed to see (and never will) that take up the most time

This is an older design for a leather wrapped game table. Not quite portfolio material, but good looking enough to share. I designed this item custom to the clients requests, we added a thin band of metal around the top of each leg as a visual detail.
