There is a wonderful story behind this commission. The Mulgrave Green granite top is from the client and was cut by his grandfather from his own quarry in Western Australia. This piece of granite was previously the top of a table with wrought iron legs which sat on the back verandah of his grandfather’s house for years and years. The table was passed onto the client from his mother as a link to his grandfather. The legs were rusted but the granite was reclaimed and shipped from Perth to Sydney.
Once the granite got to Sydney it sat for another year or two before it got polished and then the decision had to be made of what to do with it. Another fews years passed as the client decided what materials and style he liked and then he finally chose a Designer-Maker to complete the final step. This whole process has taken 5 years.It has been very rewarding to be involved in giving this piece of granite new life and extending it’s family connection. The coffee table is named after the client’s grandfather.
