More than just a cabinet company…
Jim Farris, a native Houstonian, with a background in Fine Art, started his own custom cabinet shop, “Jim Farris Cabinets” in 1976. He offers a gamut of woodwork using domestic and exotic woods, veneers, and laminates.
Ligon Wine Room
This custom wine room features our white oak cabinetry, slate on walls, floor and counter, climate control and LED lighting. The stained oak is finished with ML Campbell Krystal (a post-catalyzed conversion varnish). Each vertical row will hold a 12 bottle box with 1 bottle on display. Each and every piece is hand sanded (a real rarity in today's market). The center cabinet is backlit for special effect. It has a total capacity of over 1,300 bottles.
My client had a brand new bed and wanted a desk / wall unit to match. The biggest challenge on this project was to duplicate the multi-layered distressed finish. We were very successful, and the client was most pleased. The flip-down front in the knee space hides a pull-out shelf for their laptop computer. The extensive molding detail is accomplished without being overdone. This unit is in a high-rise condo and had to be designed to come up their elevator!
Ring of Fire
When my client told me that they wanted to redo their control room that I designed over 15 years ago, I was excited. Their main goal was to increase their WOW factor. This circular control room is 27' in diameter and is made up of 10 separate workstations, which are staggered with 4 monitors apiece. The overhead monitors and overhead curved walls are suspended from the ceiling. There are lots of eye-pleasing materials to be explored here! Also included is a plan drawing that shows the complexity of the layout. Doesn't it say WOW? You be the judge.
This modern kitchen features Santos Rosewood veneers with a catalyzed acrylic polyurethane, hand-polished to a high-gloss sheen. This finish combined with the exotic veneers adds a tremendous amount of depth to the exteriors. Solid beech dovetail drawers are included too! The doors and drawers are both soft-close. The island features concealed castors with a unique gang-lock like they use on hospital beds. When it is locked down it’s rock steady!
This French-Country styled kitchen features a custom catalyzed glazed finish and black granite counter tops. The kitchen incorporates two islands whose shapes are mirrored in the ceiling fur downs. The dramatic kitchen lighting makes for an extraordinary effect in the day or night. The fine woodworking details are displayed even more in the following photos. A lot of thought and planning went into every detail in this beautiful kitchen.
The contrasting colors and textures make this contemporary style kitchen quite stunning. Figured maple veneers, black granite, white marble, stainless steel, ebonized oak, and stained concrete are just some of the high-end finishes that really make this kitchen pop! We actually built this kitchen twice, once before Hurricane Ike, and once after.
