Most of the time, I'm working in luxury mountain homes here in Western North Carolina, but because of the incredible tourism industry here in Asheville and great hotels like the Omni Grove Park Inn I'm privileged to have my work travel to many different places around the country. Such is the case with this beautiful tabletop centerpiece.
Recently, this client was on vacation at the Omni Grove Park Inn here in Asheville and saw my work displayed both there and at the Grovewood Gallery. They loved how this piece incorporated natural materials into their modern rustic decor. Seeing my work intrigued her enough to search me out in the River Arts District and commission a piece for a recently renovated space in her home.
This tabletop centerpiece is about 42" x 18"x10" and will live on a rustic farm table below a Chihuly-like chandelier. It's the perfect addition to this rustic modern decor!
