This was a bit bigger than the Dyke's stock casings. We designed this with 2 custom pieces to make the casing a 6" wide molding.

What type of brick is this? Is there a name for it? Where can I get? - I really like the multi-colors and irregularity, looks old :-) Love it

it is just old brick- beyond that, I don't know. Here in Brooklyn, you can often match the old brick by going to salvage yards where they have it from old townhouses. Sometimes, you pay something like 50 cents a brick. I believe we got this brick from the rear facade of the house- when we opened up the rear wall to let in more light, we were able to salvage the brick.

LakeandMountainHome will build you an old farm table in the size and in the color you want. They build out of reclaimed old oak and reclaimed old pine.

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Brooklyn Townhouse Full of Light
A transitional space between the kitchen and the living room also serves as a desk niche for the couple. Herzog installed a custom bulletin board from Forbo on the back wall of the desk, which is functional and adds a sense of depth to the small space.
