Hello Geraldine,

Thanks for your interest. The "Conundrum" set of tables was a one off set and completed cost was around $7000 for the set. If I were to build it again the cost might be 20% less as the original cost included considerable development costs. Of course, as a custom piece many variations are possible.

my best,

Randy Weersing

No rules, but if your space is strongly committed to a particular style (and you like it that way), you may want to go easy on the eclectic approach. Some photos would help. Regarding furnishings from one "collection" (and this is just a personal opinion), beware of too much conformity unless you want to feel like you are living in a hotel. If you are interested in consulting a furniture designer for custom built pieces, I would be happy to discuss it further.

I would try hard NOT to match the pieces. Take a look at the photos for evidence. Actually, I seldom use end tables and when I do it's usually just one which does not match anything else. An end table is mostly good for just holding a lamp and I frequently use floor lamps.

Hi Christie, maybe it's the lens (wide-angle ? fish-eye ?) of the camera, but many lines appear to be curved in your photos. I cannot always tell if a line is actually straight in real life, or whether it's actually curved in real life. Could you post the same photos, taken from the same angles, but with a less wide-angle lens, so that straight lines appear more straight in the photos ? :)
( This could make a difference for designers to come up with suggestions -- are we trying to fit something with a straight edge, or with a curved edge. Also, the angle where the 2 surfaces meet in your red marked area -- the angle will appear larger than in real life, if the photo was taken with a very wide-angle lens. :)

I think a free-standing piece in that location might look awkward...pinched in between the pass-through and door opening. It might work if it could be very tall and narrow, but that would not provide much storage. A built-in incorporating an extension of the counter surface of the pass-through might be the best solution. Another possibility might be to utilize some of the pass-through opening to hang cabinets or shelving.

I look at color first to narrow down the selection, be sure to look at colors in the same light as the setting. Once the appropriate colors are chosen...the next variable is solid vs. pattern. If a pattern seems right, then I think about geometric or repeating vs. a more random look. If solid is chosen, the next decision is the texture/finish of the material. From then on...it gets very subjective. Be sure to consider the use of the piece regarding the need for stain resistance, ease of cleaning, and wear properties.
