Let Them Install Cupcakes!

Have you tried one of our Cupcake sconces yet? Perfect for smaller spaces, these versatile little morsels are like a piece of eye candy on your wall. Here’s how interior designer Julie Stein used hers in black. Cupcakes come in any of our colors and finishes, including limed oak, and we can also make them […]

New For High Point—Chappy Coffee Table

New For High Point—Chappy Coffee Table

High Point Market, the world’s largest furniture market, begins next week (Friday, 04/04 actually). I’m going to be blatantly honest here. A month ago I would have said that we’ll be debuting two new products, but now it’s more like 10 or something. It’s just insane. Really, I don’t know how it all happens half […]

We’d Rather Be Royal Blue

We’d Rather Be Royal Blue

Some songs, like colors, are just meant to be. I knew from the fist few bars of “We’ll Never Be Royal” by Lourde that I loved the song. I still find myself walking around the dusty workshop muttering, “jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash,” even if we’ve got Bob Marley blaring in the […]

The Game Table That Wasn’t But Is Now

Last month Dunes and I showed our Dunes and Duchess line at the New York gift show, which is now referred to as NYNow. We had a feeling that it might be a smaller show, given that it started on Superbowl Sunday and hotel rooms and flights were rumored to be scarce, so we split […]

Clearly Interesting

It’s the table with the clear top. It’s the table with a long name. It’s the Clear Top Drink Drop Cocktail Table. This is a table we introduced a few years ago, but that is still amazingly popular with people (we’re in the process of making about 20 of them for customers right now). The […]

Have a Seat

Have a Seat

Last fall we started making the Chappy Bench, which you see here, covered in a Jonathan Adler fabric through Kravet and painted in our Commodore of the Yacht Club Blue. Next week in New York at the gift show we’ll actually show it as a stool, unupholstered. We can paint this bench any color (even […]

83 Inches of Awesome

83 Inches of Awesome

What to do with our 83-inch Leeward floor lamp, or what I like to call a “floor chandelier: 1. Forego the expected overhead chandelier by using a pair of Leewards in each corner of the room. 2. Stuck in an apartment where you can’t add overhead lighting? A Leeward floor lamp is the perfect solution. […]

Snapshot Archives

Snapshot Archives

I opened up my IPhoto this morning and scanned through the numerous images that needed to be filed—Christmas 2012, birthdays, Easter, first snow, fall leaves—you know, all the harbingers of life marching on. Here are a few moments, some of which I don’t even remember. Looking at them reminds me I should get to the […]

Gold Is Hot

Somewhere either on Instagram or on Pinterest I saw this image for Burberry. Is it a new perfume? The shiny gold lips are exactly what we’re into right now with our new gold leaf line. Are you into gold?

Bringing the Heat to Atlanta!

Bringing the Heat to Atlanta!

Polar vortex-shmortex. Dunes and I left a 5-degree JFK airport yesterday and landed in a 6-degree Atlanta to set up our booth at the America’s Mart. We unpacked a few things and it started to get warmer though. Golden. Like a good tan from a winter beach. Come see us as we spread a little […]
