Koa Mudroom

The Koa Mudroom is built into a very tight space. Two narrow coat closets, with storage above, flank a small bench with cubbies below. The bench seat is a solid slab of Hawaiian koa personally selected by the homeowner. To really make the koa stand out and bring out its chatoyance, the bench seat was French polished, a two hundred year old finishing technique.

Koa, poplar, Baltic birch plywood, shellac, paint, and European cabinet hardware. Baltimore, MD, April 2020.
