Portage Cocktail Table

The Portage Cocktail Table is the third of three custom cocktail tables that Kevin designed in the summer of 2009. This particular piece ended up as a variation of the Channel Cocktail Table design, also with an added drawer for storage.

Measuring 54″ long x 21″ wide x 16″ oah the Portage Cocktail Table is crafted from a rare sampling of East Indian Laurel, which was sourced from my core stash of rare and vintage woods. The main body was set on a satin black lacquer plinth, with stainless steel offsets carefully inlaid into the top of the pedestal to support a tempered glass top.

Inset into the side of the table is a drawer for storage, with the drawer box itself being crafted out of dovetailed solid maple.

This Portage Cocktail Table is numbered 2009-#003, and is currently on display at the Industrial Storm showroom in Toronto.

A custom variation of the Portage Cocktail Table design is shown above (numbered 2010-#028), custom made as a pedestal base for a dining table. In this case the 3/4″ thick glass top was supplied by others.

Measuring 44″ long x 21″ wide x 16-3/4″ high the Landis Coffee Table features an elliptical oval top with a deep undercut bevel running completely around the perimeter of the edge.

The stainless steel legs are able to be removed for shipping, and this design can easily be customized into different sizes and shapes.

Crafted from FSC certified wood, non-UF glue and low-VOC waterbased finish this design has been described by one gallery owner as “an excellent representation of modern 50’s design with a 21st Century twist.”
