The finishing process has begun!! This is the underside of the slabs which will get a seal coat then the top side will get one coat before they are installed. The final finishing will happen in place which is the beauty of @osmocanada products. #custommadefurniture #furniture #furnituredesign #handmade #locallymade #interiordesign #loveyourhome #luxurymoderndesign #moderndesign #madelocally #studiofurniture #westcoastdesign #yvr #yyj #westcoastmodern #idswest #design #designers #craftcouncilbc #shopvictoria #shoplocal #makersgonnamake #vanisle #madeinvictoria

Huge thanks to @cityofvictoria for yesterday’s small business open house and #createvictoria round table meeting. I was the only furniture maker there which was a shame. I am very excited to see where this goes and how the city can help all of us over the next few years. #custommadefurniture #furniture #furnituredesign #handmade #locallymade #interiordesign #loveyourhome #luxurymoderndesign #moderndesign #madelocally #studiofurniture #westcoastdesign #yvr #yyj #westcoastmodern #idswest #design #designers #craftcouncilbc #shopvictoria #shoplocal #makersgonnamake #vanisle #madeinvictoria #modernlighting #contemporarylighting #lighting #light #designerlighting
