Design Daily: PCH Consoles from MASHstudiosAuthor:Sarah Virginia White
I’m a sucker for silver-leaf detail, but it turns out that aluminum is an equally alluring mistress, especially when it stands in for a drawer face in the new PCH dresser from MASHstudios in Los Angeles. Composed of cast alumunim that perfectly mimics the grain of raw teak, the drawer is a heavy metal highlight on a new series of furniture designed with a SoCal sensibility (using durable hardwoods and natural, FSC-certified materials).
Named after the scenic Pacific Coast Highway, the PCHseries is a line of refined teak furniture that is shot through with aluminum accents. The standouts are the consoles—a dresser, above, entertainment shelf, and buffet—that each feature an aluminum face, though the collection also includes a beautifully minimalist canopy bed, dining table, bench, end table and sofa.
The combo of warm wood and elemental aluminum boosts the versatility of the sleek consoles, which would be equally at home on concrete floors in a modern setting (as in these images) as in a home stuffed with Persian carpets, sheepskins, and leather club chairs. And despite the bulk of the pieces, which are constructed of solid teak with long, low profiles, the aluminum-blade legs float them elegantly off the floor.
Head over to the studio’s website to see more of the PCHseries.
