Damen-Titchner Pavilion cover in Sunbrella
Our instructions were:
Create a cover that could fasten without any auxiliary hanging hardware installed on their backyard pavilion. Sunbrella is a great fabric, rated for years of sun (obviously) and weather resistance. This Logan, Utah couple stores many items in the pavilion during winter and it’s a perennial treat for us to see their custom cover getting such great mileage and use.
Snug and enclosed for winter, protecting lots of stored items within.
The Pavilion cover in summer. A great spot for entertaining and hanging out.
Project notes, measurements and details.
Yep, the pieces were so large that we used the parking lot to lay some of them out!

Our basement on Pierpont Avenue got a LOT of use during this project. We set up extra tables to work with this big project.
Fastex hardware. Buckles with straps down each of the four corners of the pavilion cover.
Famous food purveyors Apriori needed a custom display to use at the conventions and fancy food shows they attend. Our production designer Hraefn Wulfson built this one to show off their lines of beautiful artisan chocolates and candy. The shelves are all adjustable and the display pieces hinge in, compressing to ship around the country and around the world. Custom signage: Michael Fitches.

Are we in Narnia now?
The McGrew Studios’ 2010 remodel began with a gutting of its entire storefront. This remarkable re-imagining of our meeting space by designer Hraefn Wulfson included unique custom fixtures made of wood, metals, fabrics and other materials by highly skilled artisans, creating a steampunk flavored fantasy room.
The technical skills, contributions and sheer labor of so many talented friends and clients converged in our new front parlour space. It is virtually a salon, where on any given day you might meet politicians, rock stars, producers, poets, professors and others who stop in to say hello.
We invite you in to say hello as well.
