As purveyors of some of the finest furniture rental Toronto around, we know great furniture when we see it—after all, we see it every day in our showroom. But simply because we’re in the furniture rental Toronto field doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate what others do. Far from it, actually. We thrill at seeing elegant, novel approaches to home furnishing, approaches like what Michael Palace of Sonoma, California does which inspire us as specialists in furniture rental Toronto.
We came across an article about Michael Palace’s furniture creations, located on SonomaPatch while trawling through our trusty saved search for “furniture” on our favorite news aggregator. Palace has a background in art and design and has spent decades working as a carpenter, contractor, and custom remodeler. After realizing the sheer amount of waste that is produced via construction can be alarmingly high, he decided to do something about it. He started off by saving usable pieces of construction materials and figuring out a way to repurpose them. He now puts his findings to good use by designing and creating custom-designed furniture.
The article is an engaging and worthwhile read. In addition to describing how he comes across the materials he uses for his creations (sometimes by donation, other times by simple foraging), the article highlights the benefits of Palace’s waste-not approach. Palace’s work process is also given some treatment.
A particularly rewarding passage occurs when the author, Morgan Ray, describes how Palace constructs his carefully wrought creations by using tried-and-true methods of quality furniture crafting, not simple fixes like nails and screws. Ray describes the “mortise and tenon joints, dovetail drawers and doweled jambs” Palace frequently employs, which we find to be a rather pretty turn of phrase.
From one organization that understands quality furniture to Palace, a kindred spirit located in sunny California, we offer cheers and support for fighting the good fight as specialists in furniture rental Toronto.
