Three-Story Montreal Apartment November 11, 2015 12:00

Last week, Design-Milk featured a former sugar refinery, turned chic apartment, in Montreal.

The article describes the apartment as having "refined, industrial vibes," which we completely love. In fact, this is similar to the way we describe our own Gira Table; the term "New Industrial" is often thrown around the office.

It describes pieces that are extremely sleek, often involving shiny (not rusted) metal, and sometimes a brilliant pop of color, in an industrial setting (i.e. an old refinery).

The interiors of this space, by Les Ensembliers, are beautifully curated. This apartment is a great (large scale) example of the "New Industrial" aesthetic for which the Gira Table was designed.

Customer Creation: Airstream November 4, 2015 12:00

We like to make a habit of showing off some of the awesome ideas and applications that our customers come up with. [Check out our Doorlenz Gallery for more awesome designs!]

Today we are featuring a fabulous retro Airstream. You'll notice that our customers had the genius idea of installing a blue Doorlenz in the ceiling. A great way to bring a bit more light and color into the space!


Above, we see the blue light from the Doorlenz coming in on the floor. Very cool.

Have a Doorlenz? We would love to feature your design! Take some photos and send them over to us at

Why Modular? October 7, 2015 12:00

Our modular approach allows for a product to change, based on updates to décor, season, or mood.

The lenses of the Doorlenz are incredibly easy to switch out. This enables you to choose the exact color that fits your current aesthetic, while maintaining the freedom to update your door, for a new or different effect, at any time. 

Similarly, the modular design of the Gira Table allows you to change the height, color, or leg design to match other changes you may make in your décor. Each design option adds a uniqueness to the room and will compliment different styles of furniture in different ways.


One could actually take a contemporary room and turn it into an industrial setting by changing out the color or design of the Gira Table components.

You can even change it “just because!”

Furniture That Makes a Statement September 30, 2015 12:00

There’s no denying it: the Gira Table is unique.

It doesn’t blend in.

The average living room is dominated with browns and blacks. Yes, the Gira Table is offered in both silver and black for a clean, simple look. But we also wanted to take this opportunity to get creative.

Rather than simply relying on an accent pillow for a pop of color, we like the idea of using the furniture itself to make the statement.

The customizable nature of this piece allows you to design it to fit with your existing furniture, to compliment or contrast the colors already in the room.
