Our former home and studio, a 1901 farmhouse on Bainbridge Island, was recently published on the Sunset site. Above and below are all the photos by Thomas Story. Read the full story by Jess Chamberlain here.
During NYCxDESIGN we also had the chance to show at Sight Unseen's OFFSITE with 15 other studios from across the United States in REFLECT curated by JOIN Design. The designs centered around the common theme of reflection and were restricted by size and a single material.
Our contribution was our new Reflect bottle opener cast in solid bronze. Its overall shape is reflected on two planes. Its materiality shimmers warmly with reflected light. And its use as a bar tool aids in the often art of reflective drinking.
The amazing photos above and below were taken by Amanda Ringstad. Read more about the show at Fast Company, Design Milk and Core77 or by checking out the hashtag #reflect_SUO. Huge thanks to JOIN curators fruitsuper and Melanie Abrantes as well as Civilization who created all the graphic design.
We're thrilled to be a part of Wallpaper* Magazine's 200th issue.

Now that Seattle week on Sight Unseen is officially over, we thought we'd share a few of our outtakes. Above and below are shots from around the home and studio. See the official shots and article here.
Huge thanks to Jill Singer and Monica Khemsurov for featuring our work, home, and inspirations in Up And Coming on Sight Unseen as part of Seattle week! We were especially thrilled to see so many of our friends and family mentioned. Reading it back reminded us how lucky we are to have such talented and inspiring people in our lives.

Big news: Sight Unseen, has declared Seattle the American design city to watch. Editor Jill Singer writes:
"Seattle is proof positive that these days you need only to find two or three talents in a local scene (that’s Iacoli & McAllister, Ladies & Gentlemen, and Grain, leading the way) before scratching the surface will lead you, Tumblr-style, to a whole community of creators who no longer feel the need to live in a major city in order to express themselves."
To celebrate their finds, Sight Unseen will be featuring a week and a half of artists, designers, and photographers working here in Seattle. We couldn't be more proud to be included in this roundup (Grain's post will be Thursday) with Jill Wenger of Totokaelo, Iacoli & McAllister, Amanda Ringstad, Charlie Schuck, Nicholas Nyland, Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, Ashley Helvey, and more!

We so love the work of local interior designer Brian Paquette and just had to post these photos of his recently completed family home in Seattle. They were on Lonny yesterday and include an appearance of our Jaspé and Laguna pillows. Best piece of advice from Brian: "buy good textiles, lighting and upholstery and take time to build your art collection." We couldn't agree more. Learn more about Brian here or follow his beautiful Instagram feed here. Photos by Belathée Photography.
Chelsea and Christa, of Blk Pine Workshop, promote the Shop Small Pop-Up on King 5's New Day Northwest. Here's a clip if you want to be amazed.
We are thrilled to have some or our work included in the Sunset Idea Town in Seabrook, WA. The project was designed by architect Peter Brachvogal (also of Bainbridge Island) and interior designer Brian Paquette.
The community is built around the concept of New Urbanism, which emphasizes walkability, connectivity, mixed use development, thoughtful architecture and design, increased density, and sustainability.
Seabrook is about 2.5 hours from Seattle and public tours are running until October 27th. Above and below are a few photographs from Seabrook and Brian Paquette. See if you can spot Stick, Jaspé, Hitch, and Antigua.
Nice to find our hand mirrors amongst Northwest friends included in Charlie Schuck's spread in the premiere issue of Pacific Standard Magazine. See all the images below. Order a copy here.
Thanks Francie Latour and the crew at RISD XYZ for including our story in their thoughtful piece on making it in a tough economy. We especially liked seeing ourselves envisoned by illustrator and fellow RISD alum Lauren Nassef. Read the full article (page 20 - 31) here.
