Custom Rhinoceros Chair by Paloma's Nest

Posted on June 07, 2012

Leave it to our dear friend Agnes from Knock-Knocking to kick things up a notch. While she loves our Menagerie Children's Furniture, she was envisioning something a little "crazier" for her kids' room. Never one to settle, she begged and pleaded and pulled our arms (just kidding!), and we came up with this non-toxic metallic blue finish on this Rhino Chair just for them. No problem! We specialize in custom work. Have an idea for something you'd love us to craft or build for you? Contact us! We welcome custom commissions from clients, interior designers, retailers... and you!

Notes from the Studio: A Lesson in Patience

Posted on June 06, 2012

I don't think I took a breath the whole time. My eyes were watering, and I needed to blink. But this lesson in concentration and patience is one I love dearly. A true test in mastering my craft. A challenge in the quest for "perfection." I look forward to these moments as a creator.

Lovingly hand stamped, one tiny letter at time, this bowl spells out the wedding vows a couple will share with one another next month. This bowl will be displayed and cherished in their home. Their children will one day learn to read the words. Their grandchildren will save it as a reminder of their love. Their great grandchildren will ask to hear the story of this bowl.

Creating heirlooms is our passion. Crafting pieces that will be as beautiful in 100 years as they are today is our inspiration. What inspires the work you do?

Choosing the Text for Your Custom Heirloom: some tips, revisited

Posted on January 27, 2011

One of the questions I am most often asked is "What do you think I should I have stamped on my custom piece?" My answer is always a very honest one. The most special thing about having a Custom Ring Bearer Bowl™ or other custom piece made just for you is just that- it is made just for you.  Sure, I have stamped many wonderful words on pieces for other brides and other clients. Some of them have become favorites, some even added to our permanent collection. But what makes a custom piece wonderful is the meaning behind the words you choose - not someone else's clever idea, no matter how cute.  Perhaps your text is a few lines from a love note you have saved. A snippet of your wedding vows. A nickname, or an inside joke. When selecting your custom text, dig deep. Think with your heart. The most beautiful, most memorable, and most cherished words come from you and from those you love.  I look forward to making a beautiful custom piece for you soon. What will your custom text be?
