Kokeshi Doll Donation Piece

In March 2013 Judson was contacted by the Nikkei National Museum to participate in their 5th Annual BLOOM Art Auction Fundraiser. A variety of Vancouver based artists and designers were challenged to take a simple shape and make it into something unique! As you can image this was just the task for Jud and before long he had a stack of sketches on his desk! Traditional dolls have stylized faces and sometime look like characters from popular movies.

There is something very unique, and playfully summer about his final design and it was a hit at the show!

What would your Kokeshi doll look like?

This custom pine beetle cabinet unit was built for a private client.
Using reclaimed pine beetle wood, cherry legs and a granite top this project shows the subtle, classic side of Judsons designs.

Judson with portrait

Judson recently went on a trip to visit some friends in LA and was surprised with this portait that Sam painted. Featuring the Cracked Cabinet, Bridge Bench, Jud’s beloved dog Dewey and of course Judson with carrot in hand (the carrot represents the influence of Bugs Bunny cartoons on Jud’s design style).

For a designer that is all about one of a kind furniture, this on of a kind piece of art is the perfect gift. Thanks Sam!

Custom Book Coffee Table

Judson loves an opportunity to work on one of a kind pieces, it’s what he has built his company on. When the project carries a significant meaning to the client he really steps up to the plate to produce a piece that is above and beyond.

This Book Table was designed and built for a private client to honor a family member that has passed. Titled “Resistance & Liberation” it is made from solid wood that has been custom stained, soft close hinges (no pinched fingers), perfectly cut book pages, as well as custom engraving on the spine and front cover.

Store Skull

It’s a lot of fun to work with restaurant chains, especially when they are going under a total facelift to their image. This client chain of restaurants in North America is going for the gold in Davey Jones’s locker and put us to work on a custom exterior installation piece.

This 5’ x 5’ piece was hand carved & fiber glassed by the team at Straight Line and has found its new home on the exterior wall of the Browns Social House restaurant franchise in Saskatoon, Saskachewan. The grey color matches the exterior wall color to achieve the appearance that the skull is emerging from the depths!

Playroom Project

Enter through a magical armoire into a room designed with imagination & fun for a child. This project was over a year in the making for Judson Beaumont and his crew. A multi – component project featuring seating, a miniature of our beloved Sullivan (meet the Mini-Sullivan!),  room dividers, a television cabinet, and craft desk,  all centered around a castle theme – every childs dream!
