3. Custom Table for FoldingDesigners: Jeff Squier of Joma Construction, in collaboration with Breckyn Alexander of BMA DesignsLocation: Cobbham Historic District of Athens, GeorgiaSize: 80 square feet (7.4 square meters); 10 by 8 feet Homeowners’ request. Pair luxury with practicality in this historic home, and include storage, folding space, hampers and modern appliances. “Clean and bright was the theme of this laundry room,” designer Jeff Squier says. Main feature. The custom reclaimed heart-pine wood table hand-fabricated by a local vendor. “It was made for this space — literally,” Squier says. “Counter-depth cabinets and a countertop would have been too large for the machines to fit. Table legs allow the room to stay relatively large-feeling and airy.”Other special features. Refurbished original pivot-hinge windows. Brass hardware. Glass penny-round floor tile. Ceramic ceiling light.Designer tip. “Cohesive design makes this small room with few features a part of the bigger picture,” Squier says. “Brass hardware that is seen around the home helps match off-the-shelf cabinets with the custom ones seen in all of the other rooms. The ceramic ceiling light matches the color of the cabinets and appears period. Wood from the home is used on this table, and also [for] a bench in the kitchen and mudroom. The glass tiles echo those found in the first-floor guest bath. Large jars [act as decor but also] hold fabric cleansers, and the basket can be used to stash kitchen towels and the like, just like the mirrored decor in the master bath. It is simple yet carefully planned.”White Heron in matte finish wall paint and Sheep’s Wool in semigloss finish trim paint: Benjamin Moore
