“When I first saw this mirror I was thrilled. Then I discovered that the names of my family members were hidden in the leaves which made the mirror that more special to me. It’s fun to watch people try and find everyone’s names." - Mary J. #leaf #mirror #custom #metal #steel #acccentpiece #decoration #wallmirror #design #shinymetalobjects #happycustomer #riggodesign

“We had no idea what we wanted, we had seen his work and we wanted something unique for our home. After some discussion with Riggs the idea of a family crest came up. Riggs created a stunning steel version of the crest of my father’s Bavarian home town of Aura. Today, it proudly hangs in the entry way of our home and it will be passed down for generations.” - Michael H. #familycrest #decoration #custom #metal #steel #accentpiece #generations #shinymetalobjects #happycustomer #riggodesign

“I commissioned Riggs to make a wine bottle holder of my boss. I was amazed by the final art piece; it was well made, wonderful, and unique. My boss was in awe, and he said it even had the right -sized nose!” - Gaby J. #wine #bottleholder #custom #gift #golf #metal #steel #shinymetalobjects #happycustomer #riggodesign www.riggodesign.com

Cubs fans love their beloved boys of summer. I wanted to create a piece for an upcoming art show to pull on those heart strings, but without the copyright infringement. The result was a street sign featuring the intersection of the Friendly Confines that only true fans would recognize. Mission accomplished – it was the first piece I sold at that show. #Chicago #Cubs #chicagocubs #Wrigleyfield #streetsign #metal #steel #home #accentpiece #design #decoration #shinymentalobjects #riggodesign

This piece started as a challenge to myself – create a wall mounted lamp that doesn’t look like a lamp. At first, I was trying to conceal the light bulb, but then I thought about making it the focal point. That opened up my options and the result was a tree branch with an offset glowing apple. And yes, I tried using a red light bulb…yuck! #shinymetalobjects #steel #metal #lamp #nature #tree #accentpiece #homefurnishings #design #decoration #unique #riggodesign www.riggodesign.com

“It is a stunning work of creativity. Who would have thought that steel could be crafted to look organic?! I am delighted every time I see it, and it always attracts the notice of our guests. (It is a stunning work of creativity.) Our only problem...five adult children, who would all like to have it someday!” - Dr. and Mrs. Steven J. #metal #steel #custom #shinymetalobjects #happycustomer #riggodesign www.riggodesign.com

When the producers of the HGTV show, “Meg’s Great Rooms” contacted me about being featured in one of their episodes, I, of course, said yes. They were great and it was a lot of fun! #HGTV #featurewall #steel #metal #accentpiece #custom #shinymetalobjects #riggodesign www.riggodesign.com

This is another example of an idea I had in my head and just needed to make it to see how it would look. I love the various shades of gray that steel comes in and thought showcasing those differences would look cool. And I think it does. It’s a simple design that really lets the material shine – so to speak. #walldecor #metal #steel #gray #gradient #shinymetalobjects #riggodesign www.riggodesign.com

“Designing our tables with Riggs was a journey through an amazing creative process. No store can ever provide this – and I’m not sure many designers could.” - Andrew L. #coffeetable #table #furniture #custom #metal #steel #shinymetalobjects #happycustomer #riggodesign www.riggodesign.com

This large metal end table is the man of the house. Andrew is solid, sturdy, dependable, ruggedly handsome with some very old parts in key locations.

Some people shy away from the boring and predictable and like to own pieces that are unique. This lamp was designed for those people. Part industrial, part futuristic, part steam punk, it makes a statement to any room even when it’s not turned on. #lamp #futuristic #metal #steel #statement #homedecor #lighting #shinymetalobjects #riggodesign
