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.
