We saw a lot of gams at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards. But that's not the only place we've spotted great legs—a recent trip to Madison McCord Interiors shows that tables are also strutting their stuff.
We spoke with Marsha from Madison McCord and discovered tables their can be as custom as the couture gowns on the runway.
Upon entering the store, it goes something like this: First you select a table style, whether trussle, four-leg or something of your own design. Don't hesitate to ask for something original—there's no need to fear appearing like a Hollywood diva. If you want a 20-seat table or even a ninety-foot one, they can make it. The manufacturer is also a wood factory and workshop, allowing the table to be tailored to fit your vision.
The next step is selecting materials from options ranging from wood to metals. Madison McCord even offers a unique selection of salvaged wood. These woods are taken from a variety of places including barn doors and church pews.
At Madison McCord Interiors, their slogan is, "If you can dream it we can build it". That means any style, color or fabric you want, you can have in your furniture. They produce custom-made furniture in three to four weeks. Madison McCord's custom upholstery also includes tufted and fabric beds that are beautiful and you can order them in any height. If you don't have a huge budget, you can also find accessories at Madison McCord to spruce up your home, including beautiful throw pillows. And it's not only custom upholstery, you can have custom tables made for you too. Madison McCord is located at 3232 Highland Drive in Salt Lake City. (801) 484-2222.

With Valentines day 2011 behind us I thought, what a great opportunity to profess my love of all things furniture.
Designers, Manufacturers, Craftsmen and Collectors have converged on this incredible moment in time where antiques blend perfectly with hand crafted reclaimed pieces and custom upholstery of all colors, shapes and finishes.
Lets start with the reclaimed wood pieces being produced by craftsmen from around the globe. Never before has the desire to transform previously discarded wood into gorgeous home fashion been so popular and so varied. With everything from rustic cathedral door coffee tables to french country inspired sideboards and sleek minimalist vitrines all in natural hues of fine aged wood. So many options in so many styles the opportunity to transform a a blank dining room into an art exhibit is now well within the reach of all budgets.
Custom and Designer upholstery has never been more accessible and at price points normally reserved for the trade and wholesalers. Elegant fabrics, wide variety of frames and limitless finishing options make me question why anyone would ever buy a mass produced sofa, sectional, chaise or ottoman again? We have spent the past couple years wowing our clients by executing on their inspired vision of the perfect piece in the perfect space and in the perfect color. None more dramatic than the towering tufted headboard envisioned by one of our clients below. Kudos for dreaming big and thank you for lettings us have the opportunity bring that dream to life.
Lastly I would be remiss if I did not mention the monumental efforts of designers doing what they do best! Bringing inspiration and innovation to home design. None more so than Esquire Home.
If someone had told me that there would a men's home furnishing line that featured Burberry inspired tartans, rich wool fabrics and sleek modern lines finished with deep tufts, I would have laughed in their face and I would have been wrong!
Whether it's a piece of wood that is tediously carved by hand, old nails that are removed from recycled wood, or an extravagant, multilayered gesso or paint finish is applied- a remarkable amount of skill, labor, time, and talent is put into each one of these products.
Our buyers handpick these items, working with craftsmen who breath new life into each piece, making them functional for the home of today. These antique items can only be viewed through our website and our offered to our trade customers.
