The Making of an Office

This past year we took on several custom jobs that have become some of our favorite projects to date. This office, created for McPherson Oil in Trussville, Alabama is one example.

Ken McPherson contacted Southern Accents about creating custom cabinets and tables for his office from salvaged wood. After visiting the company headquarters and getting a feel for the office space, the creative process began. Ken requested a large conference table, desk, cabinets and shelving. We knew we wanted to couple the salvaged wood with an industrial design so we went in search for the perfect base for both the table and desk. When we ran across the large iron industrial pieces, we knew they were exactly what we needed for the office space. Two large single cypress slabs were used to create the desk top. We incorporated the natural live edge on the exposed side of the desk to create a rustic, but tailored, look that paired perfectly with the cast iron industrial base.

Salvaged wood was used to create the large “farm style” conference table which was also paired with an industrial iron base. One end of the table features a hidden media area which will accommodate a number of cell phone and laptop plugins.

Various shades of salvaged barn wood were used for the cabinet and shelving unit, which also features a live edge counter to match the desk. While the wood and iron definitely give the office a masculine look, Ken quickly filled the shelves with family photos, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere.
