Project Highlight: Residence L'Estérel

Nestled in the picturesque landscape of L'Estérel, Québec, overlooking the serene Lac L'Estérel, lies a stunning architectural gem that marries nature with luxury. The residence is a testament to exquisite design, featuring high ceilings, an all-wood construction, and expansive windows that flood the interiors with natural light. The home, adorned with various art pieces, exudes a style that is both warm and bold.


Exquisite Craftsmanship: The L'Estérel Dining Table and H-Chairs

At the heart of this remarkable home is the L'Estérel Dining Table, a custom creation that embodies the essence of luxury and craftsmanship. Crafted from rich walnut, the table features a unique design with three C-shaped bases. Two of these bases are seamlessly embedded together on one side, while the third stands alone on the opposite side, creating a striking visual balance. The tabletop, designed in a barrel shape with tapered edges, adds an elegant touch to the dining space.



Complementing the table are the H-Chairs, also made from walnut and upholstered in luxurious green velvet. The chairs boast a unique H shape with large seats, ensuring ultimate comfort for guests. The combination of the rich wood and plush velvet upholstery adds a layer of sophistication and warmth to the dining area.



Design Inspiration and Collaboration

The design of the L'Estérel Dining Table was born from the inspirations and preferences of the homeowners. Seeking something bespoke, high-end, and made of wood, the clients wanted a piece that would seamlessly blend with their home's aesthetic while adding a touch of luxury. Through numerous conversations and meticulous planning, we were able to capture every detail of their vision.

Crafting the Perfect Base

One of the significant challenges we faced was crafting the rounded bases of the table. Unlike veneer, we used real wood, cutting several planks into the shape of a C and stacking and gluing them together. This technique created a stunning effect of non-continuous planks that, while challenging, resulted in an exceptionally beautiful finish. The intricate design of the bases showcases our commitment to quality and innovation in woodworking.


Transformative Impact

The installation of the L'Estérel Dining Table and H-Chairs was completed just before Christmas, perfectly timed for the homeowners' holiday celebrations. With seating for 12, this setup is ideal for hosting large gatherings and has transformed the dining room into a space of unparalleled elegance and functionality. The new furniture not only enhanced the room's aesthetic appeal but also brought a new level of sophistication and warmth, making it the perfect setting for memorable dinners and celebrations.



At ref., we take pride in creating custom furniture that elevates the beauty and functionality of any space. The Residence L'Estérel project is a perfect example of how our bespoke designs can transform a home, bringing together craftsmanship, luxury, and the unique vision of our clients.
