James Timberlake and Meg Rodgers’s Eclectic Society Hill Towers Home » society_hill_towers_8
Meg custom-designed the built-in wet bar; it was crafted by Philadelphia cabinetmaker Mark Jewett. As for the rich color choice, “That was something my husband wanted very much—places where there was a shot of color,” Meg says. Roman Thomas sconces light the Macassar ebony countertop. To the right of the bar hangs what appears to be a fine art piece: It’s actually three shelves from a Japanese lacquer shop. “We realized that every time the artisans put down the lacquer cans, they’d make these rings. It looks intentional, but it’s repurposed,” Meg says. She found a circa-1950s woodworking project by an RISD student at Old City’s Mode Moderne. It hangs beside a Nakashima dining table, a quiet nod to Meg’s former days as a woodworker.
