The Art of the Interior Designer

I’ve always been interested in interior design. 

I’ve always had a fascination with furniture, especially when it comes to a design based around space. 

My husband and I grew up in rural Utah and I’m sure we’ve heard of the beauty of being outdoors and having the opportunity to explore a new place each and every day. 

But even in our own home, I always thought it was possible to create a design that would give a sense of the space within the home. 

In our living room, I’ve been obsessed with the way we arrange the furniture around our home.

For example, we love to have a spiral staircase. 

We have a little wooden desk and I use it for journaling and a bookcase.

I like the symmetry of the wood and the way the edges of the desk are stacked. 

When I was a child, I could imagine myself in a world with a spiral stairwell. 

As I got older, I started to think more about how to make a spiral furniture piece that would fit with the home and its surroundings. 

One of my favorite things about the woodworking technique of spirals is that you can make them so small that they’re almost invisible to the eye. 

You can make a small spiral staircase and then move it around the house and create a sense that it’s not really there. 

For example, I had this idea that I could make a table that’s a little bit smaller than my living room table, but still huge enough to give the illusion that it is there.

 I started to look at the spiral design of woodworking as a way to make furniture that could stand up to the elements.

I wanted a piece that could be worn in the outdoors or the summer and still be a piece I could look at for years to come.

I had an idea that the best way to do that was to have the table on a shelf or a shelf mounted on a wall. 

The plan was to add a little shelf above the table and a little wall above it. 

Then, as you move around the home, you could go to different spots in the house, like the living room and you could add the table to different places. 

That would give the furniture a little different feeling. 

There’s an old saying that goes, “a picture is worth a thousand words,” and I think it’s true. 

Once you have a solid idea, you can start creating the pieces and getting the final design in place. 

How did you come up with the idea to make your spiral staircase table? 

I had a conversation with my husband about a couple of years ago.

We had just moved into our home and we had a lot of space in the home that was really unused. 

So I asked him, “What would you like to add to our home?” 

He was very receptive and said, “We have this wooden table and we want to add some wood to it.” 

I’m a huge fan of wood. 

He had already started looking at the design of the spiral staircase for the table, so I knew it was going to be something that he would like. 

After I started looking, I went into my closet and found an old wooden chair. 

It was about the size of a soccer ball. 

To make it work, I cut out a couple pieces of wood and laid them out on the table. 

Now, the wood in the chair was already in a state of decay and I wanted to preserve it so it wouldn’t deteriorate and rot. 

And so, the chair sat in the closet for about six months. 

Over the course of that time, I made a few different pieces of furniture that were really different from each other. 

Eventually, I decided that the most interesting way to display it was to make it into a shelf and then put it on a table.

So, I took some pieces of reclaimed wood and I laid them on the floor and I made the table into a spiral. 

 I did this in one piece because the spiral is really just a spiral and you can always make a better piece of furniture with different shapes. 

Since it was a little more complicated than I thought it would be, I ended up using a wood glue that’s also very strong. 

Of course, you don’t want to have to put it up on a regular shelf. 

Another thing that really made me happy with the design was that I can add a wall to it so that it will be able to stand on a normal shelf.

You can add shelves that are taller than the table so that you don.t have to add more wood.

The last piece was the spiral table itself. 

I made an entire set of spiral chairs with spiral legs that I used to put around the room and then they hung from the ceiling. 

These were all handmade. 

Each of the chairs had a pattern on them and I just painted them in
