We’re in the press again! We received a call last week from a woman asking how she could get our USA Map bookshelf as featured in the current issue of New York Spaces Magazine. As this was news to us, she was so kind as to fax us the page. Lookin’ good, if we do say so ourselves.  Keep those press mentions coming, and if you see us around, let us know.

Busy Little Worker Bees

January 28th, 2014



The TMR boys have been busy bees this week, completing numerous projects for Chobani, Quin Hotel, and Shinola. They worked through the weekend and were in the shop bright and early Monday morning. As always, excellent work, boys! Thank you for everything you do, and for keeping TMR tops in NYC.

Starbucks Reserve Lettering

January 6th, 2014

We just completed another project for Starbucks, this time for a location at JP Morgan Chase. We created the stainless steel lettering for their Starbucks Reserve display, using precision waterjet cutting. The letters were then drilled with blind tap holes and threaded for 8-32 threaded studs. A standoff spacer was provided, and the letters were finished with a directional #4 finish.


Plein Sud Staircase

Custom Projects, Misc

M.C. Escher himself would have been impressed with this project. The goal for this project was to create a staircase that also appeared to be upside down. The project, located at The Smyth Hotel in Tribeca, was centered around the bar and led to the downstairs lounge.  The Smyth Hotel is highly acclaimed for providing both hotel accommodations and upscale residences with a distinguished modern appeal. If you ever get the chance to go see the project, keep your eyes open, David Bowie might just be walking down the stairs singing Within You.

Working With a Custom Metal Fabricator Will Change Your Life

August 5th, 2013


Custom Projects

Sprinkles Custom Metal FacadeConverting an old warehouse into lofts?

Renovating a brownstone?

Designing a new restaurant?

One of the coolest parts of your new project could also be the least expected: custom metal fabrication.

Working with a custom metal fabricator as you move from the concept and planning stages all the way through design, fabrication, and installation can be an exciting experience, whether your project is for your own private home or for a client’s commercial space.

Interior Architects and Designers Enhance Their Work With Custom Metal Fabricators

For interior architects and interior designers, there is nothing quite like creating a space that goes beyond a client’s expectations or taking a blank space and molding it to reflect the look, feel, and style a client wants.

One of the most dramatic ways to accomplish this level of individuality in a space is through including custom-designed and custom-fabricated elements, be they decorative, functional, or both.

Why build a closed, wooden staircase when you can work with a custom metal fabricator and create the illusion of floating steps with a steel mono-stringer staircase?

Why buy mass-produced tables at a design warehouse when you can create focal points that also demonstrate your client’s dedication to conscious consumerism by instead choosing locally handcrafted, stylish steel tables made of upcycled metal scrap?

By working with a custom metal fabricator, you can turn an ordinary space into a canvas for a truly unique design.

TMRnyc works with professionals and private parties alike to create every type of custom-fabricated metal furnishing imaginable. Whether you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind bar for a client’s new restaurant or the perfect accent piece for your power office, we’ll work with you to craft exactly what you’re picturing.
