We recently wrapped up the process of renovating our showroom in Austin, Texas. We wanted to combine natural elements with unique pieces to create a refined space for our clients to come and discuss their projects and allow us to help in achieving their desired look with our wide plank hardwood flooring and other products.
You enter through double doors adorned with iron scrollwork to see this show-stopping display of hardwood craftsmanship. Throughout the space, we chose to use our newest flooring product, wide plank Natural Face Texas Post Oak hardwood, with a basket weave pattern in the central entryway. We decided to make the back wall a statement wall with our Natural Face Texas Post Oak wall cladding. The antler chandelier brings a rustic element and ties in with the natural wood throughout.
Below is one of the largest of three seating areas in our showroom where designers and architects can lay out their plans on this large custom dining table and discuss design objectives. The first thing you see are these beautiful pendant lights, then your eyes take you to the rustic elements of the reclaimed beam, textured wide plank hardwood floors, and patterned wall cladding behind the TV, before settling on the pop of navy from the cabinets and stunning French Country dining table.
We wanted to incorporate brass and copper elements into the design to break up all the wood that we used in this space. These oversized Heritage Pendant lights from Houzz do just that. Their industrial yet upscale feel contrasts nicely with the natural wood elements and linen dining chairs.
We commissioned this aged brass table base from Urban Ironcraft and completed the look with a custom Calacatta Gold marble tabletop. To create an eclectic, yet still streamlined look, we included larger wingback chairs for the head of the table, but kept them in the same cream-colored linen.
We added these stunning button tufted Versailles Belle Side Chairs from Perigold in cream linen with stained oak legs and a deconstructed back with burlap upholstery.
We repainted our office cabinetry this rich navy blue from Behr Marquee called Velvet Rope and added brass hardware to tie in with the pendant lights and table base. We wanted to add a pop of color to this otherwise neutral space. For behind the TV, we crafted a herringbone patterned piece out of our Texas Post Oak Hardwood to add visual interest and detail.
For our second seating area, we handcrafted this waterfall live edge solid table out of our whitewashed Southern Pecan Hardwood. This table adds a touch of modern charm while also adding functionality to the space. We also commissioned this custom metal rolling cart to hold our wood samples from Jackrabbit Manufacturing & Powder Coating. The industrial cart and decorative hanging mirrors help break up the natural elements of the burlap curtains, hardwood flooring, and linen dining chairs.
We chose these Parlor Bar Stools in navy blue from Houzz to accent the navy cabinetry on the opposite wall of our showroom. The leather upholstered seats have an aged antique look that brings character to the space. The industrial metal frame can be adjusted to your desired height, making them perfect for working spaces.
For our third and final seating area, we selected these leather cigar chairs to sit around this one of a kind circular coffee table from Ambrose Furniture Works in Bryan, Texas. The black rattan frame supports the textured leather tabletop that has flecks of copper in it to compliment the hanging pendants and cabinet hardware. We wanted to create a relaxed yet sophisticated discussion space for our clients.
We chose this Pergamino Palomino and White Cowhide Rug from Houzz to anchor the seating area and provide a rustic charm and accent the cognac cigar chairs.
These genuine leather Potter Armchairs from Perigold add a perfect touch of broken in yet elegant character. The aged cognac color and nailhead trim bring warmth and masculinity that ties the showroom together.
To complete our showroom and bring all the wooden tones together, we created these solid time-worn benches out of our live sawn beams. The chunky, block build of these benches help anchor the space while also providing functionality.
Our goal throughout this project was to create a multi-functioning showroom space for our employees as well as our clients. We included custom pieces to make the space feel personal and inviting and less like a corporate office. We hope you've enjoyed this photo tour and stop in our Austin showroom to see it for yourself to discuss your next project!
