I just found out that I made it to the top ten list of designers for the Green Project Salvations Competition, and that I (along with the other top 10) will be allowed to show some smaller items this Thursday thru Sunday at the super-cool Design Within Reach store on Magazine. If you’ve never heard of it, DWR is the place to go for high end modern interior design. It’ll be interesting to see how the re-purposed stuff we make gels with the slick high-end designs in the store, which is at 3138 Magazine Street at Harmony, btw.
Sadly, I won’t personally be there, as i’ll be on a plane headed for Austin, but my girlfriend Leslie will be there acting as my proxy. If you are out and about on Magazine this Thursday, stop in and get some free Sailor Jerry rum cocktails, Frey Wine, and tapas and check out the newly made lamps i’ll have on display. Here is more info:
