A Sneak Peek!

I'm counting the days until the High Point Furniture Market. I will be leaving in four days, and the excitement and anticipation are building and building. I can't wait to get there and breathe the air of design and innovation!

The photo above is a little sneak peek of my latest seating design being produced by LAZAR. I feel so fortunate to be working with such an amazing client. Their fingers are on the pulse, and they know how to build seating that makes you just want to dive in and melt right into it!

They did an amazing job! I can't wait to unveil it with them in High Point. The official opening is October 22nd. If you're going to the show, you're gonna want to stop and chillax on this new LOUNGE. I hope to see you there :-)

Pumped up kicks!

Click to order!

Yo! Converse is letting us PUMP UP our own kicks!

I can remember buying my first pair of Chuck Taylor's when I was a kid. What an exciting day! Most of my friends had them in either black or white. My first pair was white. This simple design has endured a lifetime, and It's been copied by so many!

Click to order

Now Converse has opened a whole new world to all of us! We can now design our own custom pair of Chuck Taylor's. How cool is that!?!? In a matter of minutes, I designed the shoes you see in this post. I then clicked and ordered them. I'm now like a kid waiting for Santa Clause to arrive!

In 4 to 6 weeks I'll be wearing my very own custom designed Kicks! What a brilliant idea by Converse. You peeps Rock!

One of the coolest things about it is, you can put your own mark on the side or back. This is so much fun! If we could only do this with shirts and jeans too! How cool would that be?!
Click to order
So to all the other kids with the pumped up better run...better run...because Converse has now created a very cool monster! You can order my designs by clicking the links above, or go to the Converse website and design your own!

Go there and play...have a blast!

The Trinity Collective

In my last post I introduced you to three amazing artist/designers named Donovan Swick, Kelly Jones, and Brian Davis. Together they now have launched The Trinity Collective, and they've set their sites on furniture. And just as I's a look at what they're doing...

Imagine these three minds focusing their awesome talents in one common direction. They debuted their creations at Shane's Collection in High Point.

Check this rad stuff out...

How cool is this?!?!

Each piece is an awesome piece of art! So cool. So inspiring.

These three people are decor Rawkstars! They're blasting through all the boundaries!

I can't wait to see what they do next...
