Where do you get a Drafting desk?
One of my biggest problems as an artist is finding a sturdy and workable drafting table. You can spend days searching for an old one that might work, but I don't have time for that.
Recently I did a very cool work trade with the up in coming artisan furniture company “Artifex” I told them I would make their logo if they made me something amazing and when asked what I wanted the only thing that came to mind was that sturdy unbreakable drafting table…. and thats what I got.
Yes I got a drafting table, but its pretty much a functional art piece, Its amazing, If you have ever been to my house you know its full of crazy things like a jackalope head and axes on the wall. We have so many eclectic things hanging from the wall, I always wonder what people will stop to look at. Ever since I got this desk new people seeing the house walk straight over to it. It is interesting and well built.
It’s as functional as they come. this desk will tilt up and down, it will lower so I can sit or raise so I can stand. If I really wanted to, I could get on top of it to work from above. the possibilities are endless.
Custom work with detail
The best part about working with Artifex is the attention to detail. their first priority is creating something that will fit the client. They researched my home and got to know my personality to create a piece that will fit perfectly in my home. Its all custom. whatever nook you have in your house. this furniture will fit. it just works.
anyone who works hard for their money deserves to come home to things that work, things that look like a million bucks, and things that make you happy. spending good money on these things is worth it. This is a table I will be able to pass down to another artist or draftsman some day and I couldn’t be more proud to own it.
