how did we get here: the tie-1-on sectional

What’s the story behind the tie-1-on sectional?

We started here, last year, in Milan…

got comfy thinking about it here…

then talked about it over a few of these…so we added a few of these…hence, the name.

going dutch, part I

Every April we visit Milan for the annual Salone Fair and we come home with a year’s worth of inspiration. From via Montenapoleone to the da Vinci Museum, bicycles made a big impression since they carpeted the urban landscape.

Throughout our ten day visit—thanks to Eyjafjallajökull—we took hundreds of photos of all the bikes we saw wherever we went, and we made note of the details from the front to the rear tires and from the handlebars to the pedals. But it started with….

the milan/city rentals… and rentals in zona tortona… from the tires…and wheel covers… charming handlebars, bells… and baskets… comfortable…and well-worn seats… wheel covers… to keep skirts from getting caught in the spokes… to stowage… over the rear tire.

We loved all of it. So what did we do when we got home? Find out tomorrow, right here.

watch: split logs

Piles of split logs in these racks and fire pits create one-of-a-kind sculptures highlighting the natural beauty of raw wood.  Repetition is key, not to mention the variety of color and texture of the different species.

All the reasons we love the darjeeling table which is made from reclaimed railroad ties. Each section has its own individual beauty which enhances the whole and makes it truly unique.
