Custom Pieces for SF Store

Here are some photos of a sales counter for a new store in San Francisco. It will be called "Sprouts", they are going to sell natural childrens clothing products. The store will be located on Union St. at Octavia. The counter design was a collaboration between myself and the owners. They visited my shop and we looked at alot of raw material. I also visited the store location and we came up with a workable footprint. The height was determined by ADA code req's. The counter incorporated a small chalkboard for kids to write on. On the inside, the owners had me incorporate open shelving for storage with an additional locking cupboard for valuables. I will post additional photos here once the installation is complete. The last photo is of a slate chalkboard that was designed to hang in the entryway of the store. I salvaged a 100+ yr. old schoolhouse slate board recently and this slate is from that larger piece. Some balusters and old trim complete the design.
