Well 2018 is just about in the books and that means crunch time at the Two Birds Shop. Along with fulfilling our Christmas orders and along with the moving and developing of our new shop, showroom and finish room it’ has been hard to reflect on all the projects we actually went through this year.
With that being said it is the holiday season and as many TV networks will put out their Top Events of the year we’ve done one as well that is very unique just like our projects and the creativity behind them.
We’ve created our best of Barn Doors, Mantles, Shelves & Feature Wall Projects in the form of a Top 5, so without further adieu here we go!
#5 Back to the Future
This combination of a custom table & shelving unit located at Elbow Drive in Calgary really showcases what we mean by Modern Rustic. Not only is our product rustic but this beautiful home built in the 1950’s era adds the extra and flare. We used raw steel brackets to mount the shelving units as well as a pair of raw steel legs to create their high rise table top which connects directly to the home owner’s kitchen island which creates an open conversation for those special nights while having dinner whether it’s game night with friends on a Friday or having an exclusive family get together for Sunday dinner.
#4 A DIY Done Right!!!
This custom French Barn Door set has set the bar when it comes to those wanting to do it yourself. We supplied and they delivered, the doors are from our limited edition Cedar Collection, Sideways Chevron design, complete with all of the hardware needed to put these up and really displays how to open up an ensuite bathroom & bedroom and make it pop!
#3 Welcome to the Modern Farm House
One of the most intriguing projects we had this fall, with the views of the prairies glistening in the sunset, this brand new farm homestead didn’t cut any corners, just like most farm families putting in the long hours during harvest and seeding. Two different barn door selections with our Heritage styles in a distressed white and dark walnut colour scheme for their pantry & ensuite entrance where we also added our floating shelves into their bathroom and three 12 ft cased beams along their bedroom which includes a heartwarming fire place and a view over the family’s farmland where the can really bask in the fruits of their labour.
#2 Silicon Valley Meets Modern Rustic
This was a first in Two Birds history, our first commercial project in Cochrane for Garmin, the tech giant behind GPS technology along with their sports department set-up shop and asked us to bring our story of bringing pieces of the prairies to life in their foyer and supply their staff with tables for the lunch rooms along with a display case in their lobby with forged steel to display their products and create a shelving and slab table top for their product testers to have a cup of coffee while waiting for their devices to be calibrated and analyzed. It was an honour to help Garmin open their new facility in Canada and be able to demonstrate what this great province has to offer both in the past and present.
#1 When In Doubt, Go With Gold
A Two Birds Furniture concept using a vintage design. This impeccable French Door set takes the past, present & future all rolled into one set. Using our vintage door design along with the sliding barn door track set and used the next trend setter when it comes to hardware colour… GOLD! This hardware with the aura of gold shine really livens up the hallway office into this home’s kitchen and living area. This home’s character and class has nominated for Home of the Year in Calgary and we’re just grateful for the chance to be a part of it. Don’t worry, we’ve have one of these doors hanging in our showroom for you all bask in and it will be readily available for purchase in 2019!
There you have it, the Top 5 projects selected by our dedicated team that pulled the product off the structures it came from to the final piece of quality control before they left our shop! But we take exceptional pride in all of our works so not to be outdone we’ve assemble a gallery of all of our nominees.
