In our third and final installment of “Small Statements”, we MUST include a big thank you for all of you who have supported us in one way or the other this past year. Our growth and expansion couldn’t have been done without your encouragement, loyalty and overall trust in our work and vision.
Speaking of vision, we’d like to share a few more GHID signatures from 2010.
It’s almost 2011…crazy.
Happy New Year!
Antiques & Found Objects…
This past year, GHID had the opportunity to work on a historical home right here in Portland Oregon. It was incredibly important to both GHID, as well as the homeowners, to reflect the time period of the home, as well as compliment the home’s architectural details and integrity, throughout the remodel.
With that being said, along with the hard surfaces and construction elements, we wanted to source a few furniture pieces from that time period as well. As you can see below, we sourced a quaint little bistro table for our kitchen nook area from a local antique store called Seek the Unique. They source for Mcmenamins and other antique gurus all over the Pacific Northwest, which now includes GHID. The bistro table was in great condition, however we wanted to personalize it for our clients. After we sourced the table, we had the top sanded and stained, as well as the iron base painted and antiqued to go with our color theme and decor. Needless to say, we were quite happy with our find as well as the end result.
Along with sourcing antiques, we also enjoyed searching for found objects to use in our projects – as seen below in the custom fireplace screen constructed by talented John Emmerling of Gearhart Ironwerks out of Gearhart, Oregon.
It all started with a trip to Rejuvenation to source a few antique iron pieces. After we found a collection of beautiful iron grates, vents and remnants we wanted to use, we had a meeting with John to discuss the logistics of the screens as well as our vision. The end results were incredible, and most definitely works of art.
GHID loves their orchids, it’s a perfect finishing touch to practically any space.
