Custom Furniture Sample Sale – Aquaria Consoles

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 11, 2012 by johnwiggers

In 2009 Kevin Wiggers designed a prototype console out of dark Chocolate Maple and gave it a high gloss Macassar Ebony top.

Given how well the design of this console was received several additional consoles were made, with subsequent versions being fitted with a single dovetailed drawer in one end.

We currently have several variations of these Aquaria Consoles available at discounted pricing under our Sample Sale.

The initial prototype measures 42-3/4″ long x 10-3/4″ deep x 29-3/8″ high, and is numbered 2009-#005. It has a List price of $2975.00, and is currently on display at the following showroom:

Industrial Storm
1106 Queen Street W.
Toronto, Ontario M6J 1H9

Subsequent versions of the Aquaria Console each measure 42-1/2″ long by 10-1/2″ deep by 29-1/2″ high. The high gloss figured wood tops on these pieces appear to float over their respective bases since they rest on concealed cross ribs that are set between the long curving aprons.

The aprons are attached to the curved legs by means of mortise and tenon construction. A single drawer extends from one end on Blumotion linear ball bearing slides. The drawer boxes themselves are made of dovetailed solid maple.

The console above is shown with a solid Walnut base that has been stained Dark Chocolate. The top is figured Crotch Walnut which has been center butt matched, and stained to complement the base. This console is numbered 2010-#017.

The legs and aprons on the console above are made out of solid natural Bubinga. The figured wood top is rotary cut Bubinga, which is sometimes called Kevazingo. This console is numbered 2010-#015.

The apron and legs on the console above have been made out of Curly Maple that has been stained a medium Chestnut colour. The figured wood top comes from a rare sampling of Curly Birds Eye Maple that has been stained Chestnut to match. This console is numbered 2010-#018.

The console above has legs and apron made out of natural solid walnut, with a natural Crotch Walnut top. It is numbered 2010-#016.

The latter consoles (with drawer) each carry a List price of $3295.00.
