Adrenaline pushes its creative boundaries and dives into the world of table making for The Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta’s 5th Annual Chairish Design Contest.
Update: Thank You For Making Our Table The Design Winner!
Chairish The Future raised almost $94,000 last Friday – its best year to date.
Our table sold for nearly as much as all the other design contestants combined, and we won the design competition!
Kasey Pickett, twin sister of our own Kerry Pickett, was the high bidder. Attached is a photo of the log in its new home in Kasey’s study.
Thanks again to everyone for your participation and for helping raise money for the Furniture Bank.
Adrenaline joined seven other metro Atlanta design firms in building side tables for The Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta’s 5th Annual Chairish Design Contest.
The Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta is an organization that provides free furniture for people in need, including individuals and families moving out of homelessness, battling HIV/AIDS, and fleeing domestic violence.
Every year they hold their Annual Chairish Design Contest, and this year the theme is all about side tables! At the end of the contest, each of the entries will be auctioned off, with the proceeds going toward helping The Furniture Bank provide furniture for those people in need.
Our team at Adrenaline came together to push our creative boundaries and dive into the world of table making. As a branding agency, furniture-making is not one of our core competencies, but we’re proud of the ways our team members were able to translate their design thinking and skills into the physical world to support the Furniture Bank.
Here’s how it happened…
The final table was made of three simple elements: English Walnut, Steel and Glass. After the photo series above, two panels of 9″ x 48″ tempered glass were placed on top of the log wood grooves and steel leg base to complete the table. Because the core of the table (the walnut wood log) was an organic and imperfect natural element, the schematics to output a level and symmetrical table was no easy feat. In the end, the concept was truly brought to life in perfect form.
Last year, Adrenaline’s custom-made lamp was a top-bidding item at the Charish The Future event. We hope that a generous bidder at this Friday’s event bestows a great donation to the Furniture Bank while procuring a beautiful handmade table for their home.
Thanks to everyone from the Adrenaline team who poured their heart and talent into creating this piece: Gina Bleedorn, Courtney Brennan, Carolee Coker, Saray Gill, Tex Grubbs, Laura Harvey, Kerry Pickett, Claire Puchis, and Tiffanni Spann.
And last but not least, thanks to The Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta for creating such a fun, unique opportunity for us to put our skills to work to serve others in our community!
