This is a first for us - a shot of our work-in-progress taken from a drone! Hovering probably 80 feet above a ravine, with the river in the foreground, the cabin addition we designed to fit on a boulder is taking shape. Many thanks to Tom and Maru for sharing this with us. They are both to be found in this picture, if you look hard enough, as is their son-in-law operating the drone from the deck. This is a super fun shot and a great way to look at the project!
First on Tuesday, the Sacramento Bee published an article about our friend Alvaro at ARB Digital. You can read it here. It talks about Alvaro, of course, and mentions our friends at Living Plug, but the only picture they ran was of our Watermark cabinet.
Cathie Anderson, the writer and the nicest person, interviewed us for that article. At the end of the interview, I half jokingly said she should do a piece about us. Well, she did it right away, and it came out 3 days later! You can read her article about us here.
This week saw what I think was the most beautiful concrete pour of our career. The project is an addition to a cabin overlooking the South Yuba River. The addition sits squarely on a large boulder next to the cabin and the foundations are pinned into the rock. Windows will face the river and give wonderful views.
It was a perfect morning, everything went smoothly, and Tom and Maru, the owners, were happy to help with trowelling. After months of planning, it’s great to see how well this project will sit on its site. We can’t wait to see the next phases!
It may have been a last minute decision for us to show our work at the first WestEdge San Francisco show, but it was worth it. Many thanks to the 3,000 of you who showed up to see it and speak with us! We made some new friends.
As always, our Watermark cabinet got a lot of attention, both in person and on the web. Our friends at WestEdge are great at getting the media to take notice. We also brought along our biggest Ten-71 plant container, with a very large plant that is now the newest member of our family. It likes us to talk to it every day…
Our Mixi Modular pieces were on view for the first time in New York a couple of weeks ago, and the reception was great! We met lots of great people, and we got lots of positive feedback!
We have been busier than ever these past few months so haven’t been posting much, but we’re breaking our radio silence to bring you exciting news! Fringe Studio is bringing our Mixi system to the International Contemporary Furniture Fair. We will be showing all new pieces, with new finishes and new accessories, as well as some of the ones you know and love from before.
