When Architectural Digest featured Meg Ryan and her SoHo loft in a
November 2016 cover story, the actress was photographed sitting on her vintage industrial dining table created by visionary Connecticut designer Tim Byrne of Get Back, Inc.
“Get Back has sold pieces to the great and the good, from Bono to Bruce Springsteen,” Connecticut Magazine wrote in chronicling the design journey of an Irishman from Dublin whose bespoke pieces are cherished by
connoisseurs of vintage industrial style the world over.
On the commercial side, in designing and building bespoke store displays, furniture, and lighting fixtures, Byrne has worked with Ian Schrager on the renovation of The Gramercy Park Hotel and contributed to London’s Dorchester Hotel by Thierry W. Despont, as well as creating display pieces for fashion brand Shimamura Paris & Co. and the Le Labo fragrances boutiques.
His sprawling atelier and 5,000-square-foot showroom are located on an upper floor of the former Old Pin Shop factory in the Oakville section of Watertown, CT, just north of Waterbury. It’s one of those difficult-to-find gems, so, despite having been there since 2000, the loft retains its status as a discovery reserved for discerning insiders.
This spring, Byrne is extending an invitation for visitors to schedule a private, COVD-safe tour of the showroom and discuss the appeal and versatility of his vintage-industrial aesthetic, which includes an in-demand solution piece, the Original Swing-Out seat (more below).
Just drop Byrne an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 860.274.9991 to arrange a visit. The address for GPS is 27 Main St #4, Oakville, CT 06779. Or start the discovery process with the website, getbackinc.com.
More on the Original Swing-Out Seat
The Get Back Inc. Original Swing-Out Seat is the perfect solution for saving space with style, while Byrne’s Swing-Out Seat Industrial Dining Table, beginning at four-feet-long for four seats, extends the aesthetic as far as your imagination and space allow.
The seats themselves feature unfinished alder wood seats, raw or finished oak, and Brazilian Walnut for outdoor uses, and the supporting industrial bracket is sand cast with premium ductile iron painted black.
They’re perfect for kitchen islands, home bars, wine cellars, chef’s counters in restaurants, and more.
The tables, meanwhile, feature tops made from reclaimed pine, walnut, oak, Douglas fir, stainless steel, and glass. There’s a pub-height version with foot rails that is perfect for breweries, restaurants, and coffeehouses.
