Just some awesome chairs I wanted to get off my desktop and onto the interworld...

I'm not sure if anyone is still following this blog, but if you are...hi! I am going to try and post my sketches on here as I practice new techniques. Here is one today from my first time trying to draw in photoshop. I've got a long way to go, and I can't wait to see the progress I'll make if I keep this up. Say hello if you happen to stop by!

Free Chairs!

I love a good bargain, and nothing is better than free stuff. So I was STOKED when I found two of these chairs sitting next to some trash cans on the street waiting for the trash man. It was a difficult task fitting them into an old camry along with a baby in a car seat...but I did and now they are just waiting to be redone!

Show Me Something New

Today I found two CD's from Isaloni 2007 that contain furniture images. The designs were, at the time, completely new...but to me, they were not too impressive re-dos. Who was it that said everything that could be invented had already been invented? Charles H. Duell, Commissioner of the U.S. Office of Patents in 1899. I know, it's always easy to be the critic, but see for yourself the similarities between these designs by Sintesi and the classic furniture pieces.

The original Eames lounge chair

The Sinesti version, called Hipster

The original Club Chair S 35 chair by Breuer
And the Wassily Chair, by Breuer

The Sinesti version, Iara

P.S. I definitely DON'T believe that everything has already been invented! Otherwise what's the fun of being a designer?

Chair Of The Week 14

I've been working on some new chair designs that I'm hoping to have finalized soon. When they are all done, I'll put them on here! But for now, here are some sketches I did a couple years ago when I was working at Ricchio Design.

I did a ton of mid-century style sketches for a project we were working on. It was so much fun! That is one of my very favorite design periods (if you haven't already noticed). My dream is to one day live in an Eichler-esque home surrounded by mid-century goodness.

Chair Of The Week 13

Yesterday I was flipping through some of my furniture catalogues from 2006. I was drawn to this simple and clean little chair from Artifort.
For some reason, as soon as I saw it, I was motivated to start drawing some chairs of my own. I even built up a 3D model. Now I'm thinking it would be fun to start putting some of my chair designs on here for an occasional chair of the week. You can look for them in the up coming weeks.
