Artistry in Wooden Home Details
The look says: elegance. The rich textures say: touch me. Whether you prefer an intricate inlay, the understated simplicity of high-gloss modernism, or anything in between, custom millwork sets new standards of sophistication and exclusivity.
As DnH Woodworks (Vancouver, BC) explained to Taste of Life, it’s all about transforming everyday structural elements into artistic masterpieces—each piece designed specifically to enhance the beauty of the unique space it will occupy. So banish thoughts of pre-fab from the local big box retailer. Millwork is a celebration of your good taste.
1. Timeless style with a coffered ceiling. Lighting options are plentiful: flush-mount pot lights, chandelier, or wall sconces. Ambiance to suit any occasion.
2. A floating ceiling panel, rather than walls, defines this contemporary kitchen and dining area. Matched fabric chandeliers create intriguing shadow plays.
3. Framed oval clerestory window and extra-deep crown moulding add visual balance to the symmetry of this elegant, Old World dining room. Faux marble vaulted ceiling, concealed speakers, and, for an added touch of bling—a crystal and candle chandelier.
1. Rectilinear and minimalist. Upper panels and fireplace present a strong horizontal orientation in perfect proportion to vertical display niches for treasured objects d’art.
2. Window-box seat adds a touch of romance to a nook and sitting area. Lavish crown moulding creates fluid, visual drama—cascading texture and patterning.
3. Trendsetting look: carved legs on each corner create an illusion that the centre island is freestanding furniture.
1. Illuminate your library with backlit custom bookcases. Choose open shelves or add dimension with etched glass doors.
2. Contemporary shelving keeps your favourite treasures easily accessible and at eye level while you sit at a cozy winter fire. And take a closer look at the upholstered bench—extra seating and secret storage too.
3. Why hide your favourite vintages when you can dazzle your guests by displaying them on floating wine racks above the bar? Santé!
