A couple weeks ago we spent a few days with our friend and photographer, Ben Blood
, shooting our home and studio here on Bainbridge Island.
Above and below is a tiny sneak peek. Many more to share soon!
For those of you following our wildlife adventures on Instagram, we have an update for you on the raccoon cubs nesting in our willow tree. James found the first one (see below) when she fell from her nest. Her brother (seen above with his sister) was a surprise addition James found when putting the first cub back.
At any rate, they are growing well, and have been spending more time peaking out and panting in all this hot weather. Follow along on Instagram for more.
Oh, and we are accepting ideas for names!
A few days ago our friends at Geremia Design shared photos from their recently completed design for the Lumosity HQ in downtown San Francisco. According to Geremia Design, their inspiration was "drawn from the architectural history of the space and Lumosity's mission of supporting brain health."
We were thrilled to have our Strung Chandelier for Standard Socket selected for the library. Among the other amazing lighting specified was work by Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, Apparatus Studio, and The Future Perfect. See the full project on the Geremia Design site here. Photography thanks to Matthew Millman.
Our collaborative design work in Guatemala continues with five new textile designs - all handwoven from Guatemalan cotton. The collection's muted colors are achieved through a natural dye process using leaves, flowers, seeds, barks, and roots of indigenous plants from the Guatemalan Highlands. Double sided and filled with the highest quality America made feather and down inserts, all our pillows are available in two sizes and support sustainable income opportunities for Guatemalan women artisans.

Our new Circlet lighting collection, which includes pendants, sconces, and a chandelier, paris minimal solid wood canopies with hand blown glass diffusors. Efficient LED lighting components are neatly hidden in each canopy allowing the diffusors to illuminate without a visible bulb. Making the series all about glass allowed us to work with Northwest glass artist, John Hogan, to come up with a collection of diffusors that explore glass blowing and finishing techniques such as cold-cutting and sandblasting. As each reflector is hand blown and finished, each fixture is one of a kind. Shop the whole collection here!
Taking inspiration from hand carved African stools, our Dish table collection expanded this spring with our new Dish Desk. Built in the Pacific Northwest from FSC certified solid American ash, the desk is available in a clear oil or black stain finish and can be special ordered in custom sizes. Designed to be used a desk, conference, or dining table. Above and below are new photos from Charlie Schuck of the whole collection. Visit the shop to learn more!
