Why hello there...

I've spent a bit of time this evening going through some of my furniture design sketches and came across a grouping that I'm really digging.  As such, I figured that it would be fun to share with a you a mix that I've given the handle the Grant Collection.

Though I gravitate towards more traditional styled pieces, I do have a love of industrial style and clean lines. I'm all over stainless steel and exotic hardwoods. Though in some simplistic design and suddenly you've got a set worthy of any terrace or deck. Picture it - Holland style paving stones, loads of plants, perhaps a pergola and these pieces in something like a teak of a zebra wood.

First off, we've got a dining stool perfect for one. Stainless steel tubing creates the base followed by a hardwood slat top.
I like the idea of something like a teak, zebra wood or even a reclaimed barn board for the top.
While we're on the topic of reclaimed materials, what if we switched it up a bit by using recycled steel for the base? Something with a bit more character and patina?
So now that we know where we're sitting pretty, we need to add a dining table. I suggest something with a similar design and finish. Say a little something like this -

Wanna shake it up a bit? Instead of individual dining stools, what if we created bench seats for each side. Something like this bad boy - 

And there you have it folks, another Dan creation. Now all I need is a snazzy factory to produce and some clients interested in embracing the Grant collection. A boy can dream...
