Back from the Furniture Fair!

Steven arrived home last night with a station wagon full of goods- time to unpack and get the pieces properly photograhed for the soon to be printed catalog. Thanks to Eric for the fab digs in Chelsea, to Kurt for having a brother with fab digs, to Bob at Logan Elm Press for help with the printing, to the cast of thousands (literally) who helped us cover kids, dogs, jobs, etc. while we were away. And finally thanks to you dear reader, without whom this would all be for naught.

icff 2010: circles

this week i’m going to be breaking down icff coverage by trends i noticed, whether it was based on shape, texture, or style. today i’m kicking things off with something i found myself noticing after i processed all of my images: circles galore! the past few shows have felt very focused on angular or faceted shapes (they were still there, more on them tomorrow) but i noticed a trend towards round shapes popping up in both wallpaper and furniture. so today i’ll be sharing 20 of my favorite round designs, ranging from turn tables and rugs to lighting and grand paper installations. enjoy!

Opening day ICFF

Finally all up and ready! Lots of last minute glitches- I lost a major part of our sign ( just the name) on the way in- Thank you Thank you to Jason for retreiving it from the floor and bringing it by. Almost got knocked silly by diesel fumes during set up- Steven's plane delayed- couldn't find the fab apartment where we are staying ( Thanks Kurt & Eric!) . But all is good and fine now- we will keep you posted....

getting ready

So most of our pieces are super labor intensive. Here we are getting ready to drop some more glass for covers for some of the lights we will debut at the ICFF in about 2 weeks.
