I Heart BDDW

I recently discovered BDDW at the Architectural Digest show, and fell hard for it. The pieces are lovely — lovely in the most thoughtful, simple, quirky way.

In a nutshell, BDDW is everything I adore — heirloom-quality solid wood furniture, traditionally joined, and handmade in America. The hardwoods are sourced domestically, and finishes are hand rubbed with natural oils and lacquers.
 Ahh. This one reminds me of a precious velvet something I used to sit on.

 These shelves are held by the tension of leather straps.
The table legs remind me of a little creature. Leather tabs and metal rods make for simple yet clever drawer pulls.

Marni + Chairs = Love

Be still my heart. 

Marni has created a 100-chair collection for this month's Salone del Mobile in Milan. The geometric metal seats are covered in colorful hand-woven plastic and cost around 300. In addition to providing the world with some upbeat, innovative design, the Italian fashion house also did some good for mankind; they hired a group of former Colombian prison inmates to produce the pieces as a way to help them readjust to social and working life.

Offerman Woodshop

In honor of my favorite show, Parks and Rec, returning this evening, I would like to share with you a real live furniture company by Nick Offerman, a.k.a. Ron Swanson. The Offerman Woodshop specializes in pieces created from reclaimed wood slabs, and the site design is really cool.
The designs are simple, but gain interest from interesting texture combinations, like plexi with wood, and unexpected details, like a globe floating in the center of a table.

Thank you for decorating my front door. I like it much better now.
