I like American Music.

If you ever been to my house (maybe for a Salon or something) you know that I am a bit hypocritical. I’m a designer, supposedly I care about how things look. Supposedly I make them look better.

But I haven’t taken much care with my own living quarters. There’s a mish mash of things I like, but not a true sense of style. I’ve been thinking more about making/designing some furniture for K and I and I’ve started collecting images in my never-used tumblr account. There’s a furniture company called bddw which has nailed it, imho. The look is distinctly American, drawing from the Shaker tradition with the furniture, but really a melting pot of patterned rugs and minimalistic decor. Here’s a few images:

    Have you ever seen any bddw pieces in person? They’re stunning–like any good work, they’re much more beautiful in person. There is a level of craft and detail that just makes you go, “wha-how???” There was a bbdw boutique around the corner from my old office, and I used to wander in there in quieter moments to just look at the pieces. Wonderful stuff.
