From the Apartment Therapy inbox, a VERY Chicago-centric project by Randall Kramer. He writes "I just completed a beautiful Headboard for a client in Chicago's Gold Coast & wanted to share it with you!" Jump below for another photo and details:

I was approached by someone who had bought a section of Railing from THE Carson Pirie Scott store at State and Madison. In their storage room was a 10 ft chunk of railing with 2 beautiful balustrades-clearly Sullivan-esqe- but covered with layers of brown paint.

We settled on a design that would require "one more" balustrade to fill in/balance the design. So - using a sculptor who runs a Foundry in his shop- I was able to reproduce one of the balustrades thru sand casting in aluminum.

Thanks, Randall!
