Saturday Open Studio at Black Creek Designs

June 19 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


Stop by Black Creek Designs’ studio on the way to the New Canaan Farmers Market this Saturday, June 19th. The studio will be open to browse from 10am to 2pm. Located on 26 Grove Street, the studio is easily accessible directly from the farmers market.

Come take this opportunity to browse a variety of unique pieces ranging from casual benches to exquisite foyer tables to brighten your space for the 2021 summer.

Each bespoke piece is crafted with distinctive artistic, structural qualities. I also offer free, in-home consolations for made-to-order pieces ensuring the custom crafted furniture fits seamlessly into the aesthetic, design, and small details of your home.

Don’t miss out on the chance to see, up-close, Black Creek Designs’ inventory of sculpturally artistic yet functionally sound pieces.


Laguna Low Table 4 in walnut is perfect for a modernized coastal home. These tables are some of my favorite and most challenging to build. Each base is as unique as the process. Tapering arcs of varying size intersect to form a dynamic structure. The movement created by the base reflects the natural elements found in coastal environments.

The Laguna credenza is a study in contrast and form. The rectilinear cabinet balances elegantly on six legs full of movement. The doors feature the prominent rift sawn grain of rare Hawaiian koa, which is framed by the walnut case. This versatile piece is a perfect addition to almost any room whether it be used as a console or to stand on its own. The juxtaposition of fluidity in the legs against the structure of the cabinets furthers a sculptural read of the piece.

The rich detailing and overall simplicity makes the Havana bench perfect for varying spaces from an entryway in an apartment to a living room in a home with a nod to midcentury design. This bench features an ebonized solid walnut base with a sculpted and bowed stretcher. This supports a floating top made of solid English elm burl. The top is cerused with lime wax.

The latest variation of the Havana side table continues my exploration in contrast and balance. For this table, I used the traditional Japenese shou sugi ban technique of burning the ash leg. This creates a deep, rich black paired against the limed elm. The varying height of the top of the piece furthers this study of balance in sculpture. This piece will fit flawlessly into a modern home for its simplicity yet sleek design.


Let Tom Throop of Black Creek Designs assist you with your next project, either with a piece from my current line or with a unique piece that we design together.
