16′ custom designed tufted leather sofa in Kevin’s own apartment

Custom Furniture Designed By Kevin Gray

Many of the furnishings in homes designed by interior designer Kevin Gray and the Kevin Gray Design team are custom, one-of-a-kind pieces designed by Kevin exclusively for that home. There are many advantages to custom-designed furniture – higher quality, sized for hard-to-fit spaces, exact color and fabric choices. But the most important benefit of custom furniture is uniqueness: the homeowner will never see that same piece in someone else’s home.

Kevin explains,

“After graduating from Parsons, Paris in 1979 I decided to move to Paris – and bought a classic 19th century apartment which I partially gutted and turned into a loft-like space – and stayed for 10 years! I made it modern with glass block walls separating the kitchen and bathroom with an open plan for my furniture and lamp designs.

I was designing and producing one of a kind furniture and lamps for some of the top designers in the fashion industry in Paris, London and Hamburg. I was inspired by German Bauhaus, French Art Deco, Spanish Antonio Gaudi in Barcelona, Italian 40s-50s- especially Murano glass. I was especially taken by the top French designers in the ’50s: Prouvé, Perriand, Serge Mouille, Mallet-Stevens.

Touches of metal inlays, silver leaf, faux leathers, lacquer, and even snakeskin accents. Unique materials in various shapes and forms give a unique look to a room and add character

Adding unique touches give it personality, and I keep my designs practical,  with one of a kind pieces in various finishes, and a combination of materials, finishes and fabrics. I use exotic woods, often in starburst designs, patterns or left natural.

Clients want exclusivity. They are tired of that standard look you see everywhere: same old, same old, in dark muted colors.”

 

Made-to-measure custom furniture which fits perfectly into your home and design can showcase the homeowners’ artwork, exterior views and interior architecture. Custom furniture solutions are ideal for:

  • building limitations such as limited elevator access and narrow stairwells can be overcome by custom modular pieces that are designed to accommodate building restrictions
  • multi-purpose rooms that need furnishings to perform double-duty for work and entertaining
  • vast spaces that require overscaled furnishings
  • furniture designed to showcase art, antiques or views
  • eco-friendly homeowners with specific materials or manufacturing requirements

Kevin has designed custom furniture and lighting for dozens of interior design projects, here are some of his favorite custom furniture designs.
