Design of the Month Contest: March 2012 Winner

The March 2012 Design of the month winner is pictured above. This month our winning design was the Custom Office & Library Designed by Rustin Higbee. This design was built in Arbor Myrtle finish with Knotty Alder real wood doors and drawer fronts, crown, fluting and rosettes stained to match. Real wood Knotty Alder table legs have been added to support the glass tabletop to complete the look and really tie the design together. This final touch in conjunction with all the extra details and upgrades creates an all around stunning home office design.

A word from Rustin on how the winning Design came together:

"...The challage we overcame with this Office design was to create a custom height cabinet so the glass surface would be flush with the Arbor Myrtle bull nose surfaces to the left and right where the glass flushes into the unit..."

"...One of the most impressive features of this design is the column details for the center fluting. To achieve this look we added two inches to the depth of the upper center unit which also gives a really nice added dimension to the crown and makes the whole unit pop. The upper bookcase is fully backed with recess lighting in all the top shelves complete with a rocker switch for manual control..."


"...When Ian first showed me the design he wanted for the table legs that support the end of his glass surface, I was determined to provide this final piece at an economical price. It took a great deal of research but with some digging I was able to find a distributor that produces the same legs he was looking for in Knotty Alder and the price was unbeatable. It was the final piece of the puzzle that really completed the design to provide the high-end look we were going for... "
