August 12, 2016

On Thursday, August 11, owners of Twelve60 Martin in the Finery were invited to a private event at Corsair Distillery to view a custom-made kitchen island, made available exclusively to Twelve60 residents. The kitchen island, designed by David Wildman and Brooks Wolfe and crafted by Fort Houston in Wedgewood Houston, can be customized for owners with natural or dark wood and finished with raw or painted steel.

Beaird went on to praise the work of Fort Houston and the artisans of Wedgewood Houston.

“Wedgewood Houston wouldn’t be what it is without Fort Houston. We at The Finery want to embrace the artisan community, local economy and local manufacturing, and we are thrilled to collaborate with these guys,” said Beaird. “It’s an opportunity for Twelve60 buyers to work with a local artisan who works right down the street. And it’s unique in that you won’t be able to buy it anywhere else.”

Fort Houston artisan and island designer, David Wildman, expressed his gratitude for the partnership and his passion for the project.

Island Designer Quote“This island embodies this neighborhood, Nashville as a whole and the maker community. If you come down to our shop, you won’t see a machine that produced it, you’ll actually meet the guy that made it. It’s so much more than just an island.”

Wildman continued, “This neighborhood is incredibly important to all of us, and we are grateful for the opportunity to work with you.”
