Custom Furniture Sample Sale – Chevron Console

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

Condominiums in Toronto and apartments in New York City are notorious for having limited amounts of space – especially near the entry.


To address this situation Kevin Wiggers has designed a simple wall hung console that is both functional and easy to install.

The Chevron Console shown here measures 30″ long x 6″ deep x 6″ high. It has been crafted from quarter cut Wenge panels that have been compound mitred to create a seamless monolithic structure.

A hidden recess at the back holds an aluminum French cleat to allow for secure mounting to a wall.

Last year Kevin had this piece on display at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show as part of a group exhibit at The Furniture Society’s display.

It was a great honour for Kevin to participate in this event, since the Chevron Console ended up being displayed alongside the works of distinguished furniture makers such as Garry Knox Bennett, Wendell Castle , Michael Fortune , Vladimir Kagan , Silas Kopf, John Makepeace, Judy McKie, Po Shun Leong and others.

Although the actual console from the show was sold there, an additional one numbered 2010-#022 (and signed on the back by Kevin) is available for sale.

The List price on this console is $1250.00

Chevron Console at the “My Grain” Exhibition

Many apartments and condominiums are notorious for having narrow entry areas at the front door. To address the design challenges of these spaces Kevin has created a narrow wall hung console called the Chevron Console that is only 6″ deep.

Earlier this year Kevin had the privilege of displaying an example of this design at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show in New York.

This piece ended up being part of a group exhibit at The Furniture Society’s display, where it was featured alongside the works of distinguished furniture makers such as Garry Knox Bennett, Wendell Castle , Michael Fortune , Vladimir Kagan , Silas Kopf, John Makepeace, Judy McKie, Po Shun Leong and others.

Kevin’s Chevron Console was subsequently sold to a private collector.

For the upcoming “My Grain” exhibition at The Guild Shop in Toronto Kevin will be displaying another version of the Chevron Console . This piece measures 30″ long by 6″ deep by 6″ high. It has been crafted from quarter cut Wenge panels that have been compound mitred to create a seamless monolithic structure. It is wall hung by means of a French cleat that is recessed into the back face. It is also signed and numbered on the back face: 2010-#022.

The “My Grain” exhibition opens at The Guild Shop in Toronto on Saturday July 16th.

Several months ago Kevin  received word that his Chevron Console was accepted into this year’s Architectural Digest Home Design Show.

His console ended up being part of a group exhibit at The Furniture Society’s display.

It was a great honour for Kevin to be participating in this event, with his Chevron Console being displayed alongside the works of distinguished furniture makers such as Garry Knox Bennett, Wendell Castle , Michael Fortune , Vladimir Kagan , Silas Kopf, John Makepeace, Judy McKie, Po Shun Leong and others.
