Being in a one-‐of-a-kind venue such as Ellis Island, you automatically become inspired by its incredible history. The striking architectural elements tell the powerful story of a time when millions of immigrants passed through this great hall. Very few places hold such history in one building and it’s truly an honor to have designed for such an inspiring place!

Designed with the Ellis Island Registry Room in mind, this unique piece looks as though it could be a permanent fixture in the museum! The 16’ solid oak square bar is complete with a coordinating back bar which boasts authentic windowpanes and gold grommets. Antique luggage and decorative greenery are perfect elements to complete this look.

Buffet stations are always more delicious when the table has themed decor! This Spain-­‐themed table was designed with a solid oak tabletop placed on authentic oversized barrels. Bright floral blooms in golden yellow and red are placed in hand-­‐carved containers. The wrought-iron lanterns add a perfect touch of candlelight to the design.
