Once the posts were set up, Ricardo added shelves at various levels. From this angle, you can see why Ricardo didn't want to make a lot of attachments to the wall: one wall was made of brick. He took a problem and turned it into a design opportunity.
The combination of black-pipe and wood reminds me of the custom kitchen hutch which I built last year:
Black pipe and wood look great together, and they can blend into almost any interior, from rustic to modern, However, the system can be trickier than it looks, because It can be hard to get all of the joints aligned "just so." Ricardo did a great job on this installation.
The empty shelves are already eye-catching, but they really come into focus when they're filled with art and sculpture.
If you're looking for a local Asheville craftsman to install a set of custom shelves, give us a call. We know how to do it well!
