Pasadena Heritage
Craftsman Weekend

FallingLeavesRoom Fireplace&Desk View

Back in October, we exhibited at Pasadena Heritage's Craftsman Weekend.   The road trip down to California in the fall is a joy. If you've never done it before, the drive through Oregon, all the way down to Southern California is a worthy trip. Not only is our state beautiful, but, rural California is rich in breath taking scenery.  Once we were in Pasadena, we had a great show!

http://www.cjhurley.com/interiors/index.phpSetting up Falling Leaves takes a full two days, and is a pretty exhausting endeavor.  We exhibit just a few times a year, and the Pasadena Show is one of our personal favorites -- boasting a beautiful town, a well-organized exhibition, quality exhibitors, and idyllic weather! We'd like to thank everyone who visited us at the show and made our efforts worthwhile. Your support and feedback are most appreciated.

We enjoyed seeing past clients, meeting new people, and visiting with our colleagues -- whom we don't see very often.

Above:  Warmth, comfort, and intimacy are combined with graceful details in this deeply spiritual & symbolic room dedicated to the beauty of nature. The Falling Leaves roomset shows how truly uplifting a totally hand-crafted Arts & Crafts living space can be. A view of the mantle wall, portiered doorway, and corner seat of Falling Leaves shows the breadth of CJ's work, and an array of exquisite detail.

Below:  Past the bookcase front of the Library table, a view opens to the fireplace and it's focal point, the "Origins" gesso panel and the frieze, "The First Leaf of Fall".

Below:  "Origins",  The spiritual essence and beauty of nature are explored in the Origins gesso panel. Origins is a richly textured, and symbolic work of 3 dimensional art. A life enhancing treasure to grace your home and uplift your spirit. Mixed Media on panel $8000.00. 


Library Table
Furniture: The perfect marriage of art, form and function, CJ designed this one of a kind Library Table and Bookcase combination for the Falling Leaves room.  The furniture features hand forged iron hardware, a custom stained glass door-front, and hand-painted accents. This is a truly beautiful, functional, and unique hand-made piece of Arts & Crafts furniture.  $10,000.00.  

Contact us if you are interested in knowing more about this piece or if you would like other furniture and accessory pieces custom designed for your home.
