With less than two months until the public opening of the Richmond Symphony Orchestra League (RSOL) Designer House, G&HA designers are busy putting the finishing touches on product selection. This week, we are excited to feature two Richmond area furnishings companies: McKinnon and Harris and Vangarde Woodworks. These local industry partners are recognized for their craftsmanship, and we can’t wait to integrate their pieces into the design for the master bedroom.
McKinnon and Harris
Founded in a generation characterized by mass production, McKinnon and Harris is devoted to crafting high performance furniture without sacrificing aesthetic or function. The design of each piece begins with the artisans’ own memories, families, and heirlooms in mind, instilling a sense of timelessness in the finished product. Their love for family has played an instrumental role in their design process and business culture, as they are committed to creating pieces that will not only endure the harshest of weather conditions, but will also become treasured family heirlooms for years to come. For this reason, each handcrafted piece is guaranteed for life as well as personally signed and dated by the artisan. McKinnon and Harris’ Maury Table, pictured below, is the perfect addition for a sweet Sunday morning breakfast in the bedroom.
Holding a reputation for creating the highest quality architectural millwork, custom cabinetry, and custom furniture, Vangarde Woodworks produces pieces that truly are “tailored to fit the way you live”. The company strives to exceed client expectations by creating the best product possible with respect to both material and budget. Vangarde’s skilled craftsmen thrive on the complexity of unique custom projects and have the capability of accommodating a wide array of client needs with their state of the art manufacturing facility. Vangarde is a team of problem solvers who are equipped to create solutions for every client regardless of project scope. The video below shows a custom vanity, designed by Gary Inman and brought to life by Vangarde, that was done for one of our residential projects. We are certain they will create something equally as amazing for the master bedroom of the RSOL Designer House.
