Sometimes I am watching TV or a movie and I spot something that I designed, and then I get unreasonably excited because no one actually knows I designed it except me and a small handful of people I used to work with. A few weeks ago, I was watching “Fifty Shades of Grey” (it is terrible, but in a trainwreck can’t-look-away kind of way), and I spotted a table that I designed while working at Four Hands. The table is in a few scenes, but is easiest to spot when Christian’s mom (Marcia Gay Harden) visits Christian (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia (Dakota Johnson) meets her for the first time. They walk through the foyer and past the staircase, and there she is: the Magnolia table that I designed way back in 2008.
Check her out in the right corner of the shot. The Magnolia Table is still available through Four Hands in various sizes and finishes.
