Heres a sneak peek from my beach house project. My clients recently re-landscaped their backyard, taking a tropical approach to their beach house theme. I was asked to selected some outdoor furniture and design a firepit for them. The furniture is from Brown Jordan and features all weather faux wicker and outdoor fabrics.
We also have a large custom designed outdoor lantern in the works - it is going to feature a glorious hand blown, colbolt blue irredescent glass globe and intricate copper metal work for the body and hanging system.
The design is based off a pineapple - which adds a touch of whimsy & fun, and plays to the tropical theme. The lantern will be the focal element above the dining table which takes center position under a large pergola which also houses the outdoor kitchen. The metal work is being crafted by the talented artisan Ed Fickbohm and the glass blown by Rob Adamson, both based in Washington state.
Heres a picture of Rob holding the glass globe soon after it was made to show the glorious blue glass work and just how big this baby is going to be!
