We have been designing a new line of work-space furniture for Bindle & Keep in Brooklyn. HBO and Lena Dunham will be filming a new series about then in November. Stay tuned for a post with the custom designs we came up with for their new space!
The owner Daniel is an amazing guy! We met in June when he personally fitted me for my wedding suit. We thought it would be fun to trade our skills. A bespoke 3 piece wedding suit for a bespoke table and benches. Not a bad deal!
For his table we used reclaimed heart pine from a 125 year old Washington DC row home that was town down. I wanted the finished product to be modern with a strong nod to the history of the wood. We cleaned all the rough surfaces to reveal the amazing old growth grain of the heart pine. When then hand selected each piece of wood for each table part. The finished product is simply stunning!
I am pleased to announce that Kurtz + Atkins Design has been named a 2014 Martha Stewart American Made Design finalist. Voting will start September 15th! Stay tuned for more information on how to vote for us!
Bryan and I had a photo shoot with MK from Mary Kate McKenna Photography the other day. We had a great time. We loved working with her so much we decided to make her the official photographer of Kurtz + Atkins products.
I was contacted last month by Simpson Strong-Tie to take part in their DIY Done Right Campaign. I jumped at the opportunity, since we were in desperate need of additional organization in our workshop! We desperately needed a shipping and receiving area, so we could quickly process website orders. Simpson sent us two kits and $50 to Home Depot to create whatever we wanted! Bryan came up with a design that maximized every square inch of available space we had.The project took us an afternoon to complete. The kits are very easy to use!
The best part is one lucky follower will get a kit and $100 to Home Depot to get their DIY on! Who doesn’t love free?! Additionally, Simpson will be giving away $2000 worth of powertools and hardware!
We recently designed this wine bar using 150 year old reclaimed heart pine. We decided to use a welded steel base to give it a more modern and industrial feel. I have a feeling we will be making many more of these in the near future!
Interested in purchasing or having a custom size made?
I am updating this post because I have gotten over 400 emails about this post! 95% of the questions are about the custom reclaimed wood arm wrap in the photo! We are constantly making new stock, so check back frequently. Are you interested in designing a custom wrap to match your decor? Please email me at email@example.com. Don’t have an IKEA Kivik? We have made armwraps for West Elm, Pottery Barn, Arhaus, Restoration Hardware, Caret and Barrel just to name a few!
We recently made a console table for a client and had a lot of great feedback. Making it into a wine bar was the most common request. We love happy customers, so came up with a design to add wine storage for four bottles.
