Coffee table for Alexa Hampton

We consider ourselves lucky to be a part of any project. However, when a client comes to us for work in their own home, we must admit to being particularly grateful. Especially when the client relationship goes back a few generations! Alexa Hampton commissioned us to make the coffee table pictured below for her home last year. The most prominent features of the table are hand-carved anthemion on either end of the table. We went through a number of carving models to get to the final one, as you can see below. And we couldn't be happier to see it in such a beautiful home (thank you Architectural Digest)!
