Kitsch-in…

Somewhere in an 1850’s farmhouse in GHent, NY.

The Kitsch-in, is an experiment in Traditional, industrial, and Craftsman styling. Rather than write out a long winded blog, I will let the pictures and description tell the story…

NY_Rhinebeck Pilates

Spring is a wonderful time in NY, the weather warms up, the flowers bloom…and stuff gets built.

Rhinebeck is an adorable hamlet on the Hudson river about an hour and a half north of the city, it features colonial and gothic architecture, cute, bustling shops and an amazing Pilates studio.

I had the privilege of building the front desk for said amazing studio, in this charmed hamlet. It started with locally sourced, spalted Maple that was beautifully figured and had dark lines of “spalting”. Then, I added some birch Plywood to match the existing furniture. The final step was creating a “charging station” where students could leave their cell phones, while escaping into the Pilates peace of mind.
