The table was purchased by the owners prior to the start of the project, and unfortunately we do not have information on the manufacturer.

How are those ceiling lights put tOgether?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The lights were designed by SGW and assembled by the builder, Crescent Rock, Inc., out of standard electrical parts that can be found in a hardware store: a simple metal conduit, lamp socket and LED light bulb.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A home with five school-age children has to work hard for the family, and nowhere is that more apparent than in the study area. Industrial-chic metal chairs sit side by side fronting the homework desk area, lit by task lighting, natural light from surrounding windows and dropped bulb lighting. There's plenty of storage space for papers, books and art supplies, plus elbow room for each child to sit comfortably.Goulette and his team retained and exposed the existing interior timber floor joists that had been covered by plaster and drywall for more than a century. They also salvaged many of the wood joists in the basement and roof, turning them into new finished flooring planks, countertops, benches and ceiling treatments.Desk: James R. Clum Custom Cabinetry
Becky Harris added this to 5 Incredible Home Conversions
During construction, the team ripped down drywall to expose floor joists. They also reclaimed and repurposed wood joists from other areas of the house and created countertops, benches and ceiling treatments.
