One of my favorite things

Today, in honor of breast cancer awareness day, my blog is pink, and my thoughts are with all of those who are bravely fighting this disease.

I have saved all of these pictures into my inspiration file for one reason: the Baltic console by Niermann Weeks. There is something so exquisite about the carvings; they remind me of Celtic knots.

Baltic console by Niermann Weeks.

Niermann Weeks is a custom furniture maker, so they can make virtually any modification to the original design. Here is a baltic console inspired cabinet.

It is quite striking in black and gold.

  24. A lot - many, many thousands of dollars! I seem to recall that it is in the neighborhood of $5,000? Look at all of the intricate carving...it is a beautiful, hand crafted piece.
