Much of Solemn Oath’s new home, set in a former industrial park automotive repair shop, has been set aside for brewing and expansion. But in a tidy front corner, local designer Greta de Parry has created a sleek space to match to match the beers: modern and edgy, yet familiar and comfortable. Spread across the concrete floor, the taproom is highlighted by an L-shaped walnut bar, ringed by about a dozen concrete-and-steel Coleman Stools. —Chicago Tribune
The bar is handcrafted out of two solid slabs of Wisconsin-grown black walnut: one 17-feet long, the other 13-feet long, each milled and finished to perfection. Custom-ordered Coleman Stools invite you to take a seat, and hand-torched, wire-brushed shelving units line the walls holding glassware. Order a few samples of their award winning brews and you’ll also enjoy the flight trays, designed to mimic the wall units.
“Rose's Fine Food is all about food from scratch with the highest quality ingredients.” This is how Rose’s describes itself and is a mirror of my philosophy when it comes to furniture. What’s more, Rose’s makes it a priority to be a part of their community in Detroit and has introduced innovative (yet common sense and decent) principles such as paying all employees a living wage instead of forcing them to rely upon tips.
I was thrilled to build eight, one-of-a-kind, farm tables for the space, using reclaimed fencing posts with a weathered, green tint.
Twelve custom-ordered Coleman Stools line the counter at Yusho, a yakitori restaurant in Logan Square opened by award winning chef, Matthias Merges. Beautiful, comfortable, and very cool.
Dry Hop is a brewery and kitchen located in Chicago, IL. Each dish from their kitchen is inspired by the craft beer they brew and designed to mirror the artisanal, neighborhood attitude of the brewery. I designed and built the dining tables to do the same.
