Combining Form and Function
June 28, 2013 | Posted by: Pam Plowden Rawson, ASID

As interior designers, our job (and our talent, I suppose), is to envision a space transformed.  With new construction the task becomes creating the space from scratch.  This is more than decorating.  Both renovation and new construction require our ability to draw upon our mental inventory of materials as well as knowledge of design elements, all coming together in our minds.  This is what we present to our clients.

But what happens when that one component needed doesn’t exist?  Or it’s the wrong size, color or material?  Custom work is a fun, but challenging, aspect of our job.  We rely on our wonderful team of sub-contractors to help us make these ideas a reality.

While pot racks are readily available, the scale of the one below had to be custom made.  The other challenge was to light the work space, when such a high and dramatic ceiling height made it difficult.  The lights were purchased separately, and our iron supplier worked with an electrician to combine the two and create this over-sized custom pot rack.


The custom pot rack is both practical and a dramatic design element.

Even with ample cabinet space, the client preferred having their pots within arms reach.

Combining form and function is the cornerstone of what we do.  Custom work allows us to never have to choose between the two.
