The client purchased the cabinet hardware- most likely from Chown Hardware or Rejuvenation - both here in Portland, Oregon.

The windows are 3' W x 4' H. They are a little distorted in the photo due to the wide angle lens used for photographing.

Thanks very much for taking the time to reply! The desk is a little longer than I would have guessed. I have an alcove 8 ft x 8ft, with a 6 ft window and you have inspired me to try something similar. Although my side shelves would have to be quite shallow... Would you recall the dimensions of the units you used at all? Thanks very much again! Great space!

We are unable to identify this particular color, but the Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter #HC-173 is a similar color that we have used successfully on several projects.
