What do all of you think? Originally we went with things painted all the same, through and through. I think it was both an aesthetic decision as well as pragmatic. We had $750,000 worth of case work done all at the same time for our 125,000 square foot expansion, and some things needed to be economized.
A few years later we had a ped/case intensive exhibition of origami work and it struck me that the ped/case furniture would feel more at home if they matched the building’s architecture. So we are slowly moving them into a semi-gloss bottom as opportunities present themselves. Since we have these two styles occasionally coexisting, I thought I’d give all of you an opportunity to see them both in a gallery setting so you can decide which would look best for your situation.
Included in the images is a ped that was a series of pedestals made at the last minute that did not receive a routed channel. Just for comparison purposes.
