A recent Rhode Island School of Design graduate came in for an informational interview this morning. I had just written my weekly blog post about furniture for urban living, when he showed me his freshly created design—the Husk Nesting Chair. Have a look and let me know your thoughts. I sent his design to my friends at Barlow Tyrie to see what they think. Our visitor expanded on the inspiration for Husk: “The primary objective here was to design a set of two nesting chairs which at first appear to be a single chair. This visually singular chair would also be usable as one chair. The action of ‘un-nesting’ the two chairs would then reveal that there are, in fact, more than one.” Check out the Husk Chair video.
As high-rise apartments are literally being built up around us here in Seattle, we have become increasingly aware of the demand for furniture that fits more intimate urban living environments. While traveling in Europe, I was introduced to the folks at Cane-line out of Denmark. They have a wonderful line of indoor and outdoor furniture well suited for small spaces. Knowing that many brands typically make larger furniture for the American market, I was happy to learn that we would be buying the same line as is available in Europe. Scale is so important when looking for furniture, especially indoor furniture. We are excited about our new edition and will be adding Cane-line soon to our site—so check back!
