Local, Custom, and Ready to Work!

By: Loren H. Pratt

In our digital age, we often think of “desktop” as ubiquitous with computers, but a physical, wooden desk is still my first love. As a teacher, I need a designated space for class preparation and grading papers, so back-to-school meant an opportunity to invest in a new desk as command central for the school year. Check out my new custom desk from Atlanta’s own Jack Ellis Company.

This desk is functional, spacious, and absolutely gorgeous in person. I love its live-edge and unstained finish and the fact that it floats in the room. It’s the perfect combination of classic cool and modern chic, plus it was made from reclaimed wood, so no trees were intentionally felled to make it. I can’t wait to nerd out with my husband and work a puzzle or play a board game on it after the semester ends. Thanks to Balance Design for helping me select this special piece of furniture for my home office!

From Start to Finish: Candler Park Custom Bar

By: Shelby Adamson Pawlak

One of our favorite things to do is customize a space to fit a client’s lifestyle. These design savvy Candler Park clients had just purchased their new home and brought us on board to update the kitchen, fireplace, and bar. They liked modern design, are friends with the distillers at Old 4th Distillery (known for their copper cups), and like to have company over. We designed this space so they can celebrate in style!
