The Owl and the Peanut go to Providence

 

Months of hard work by everyone here at the studio have finally paid off and we are delighted to announce the birth of the Peanut Desk and the Rolling Owl in time to bring to the Fine Furnishings show in Providence, RI this coming weekend October 21st – 23rd.

A year in the making, these two pieces are close to our hearts and in keeping with the Owl Furniture philosophy which requires attention to beauty, economy and ergonomics. Additionally, these pieces are both light spirited and full of organic grace.

We have definitely had fun scooting around the shop on our Rolling Owls this week!

Owl Nouveau

Elements of the style vocabulary seen in Geoff’s larger pieces have begun showing up in Owl furniture. Here you can see the arched knees, which are steam-bent, and an elongated foot, bringing a more substantial feeling to this desk. The curve of the live edge, similar to the form of the peanut, gives a feeling of space and allows for a more ergonomic flow when working.

So here we are, all packed, mostly . . .  the rain is pounding and the pillows are calling. We need a restful night before the long drive south to Providence tomorrow A.M.

Please stop by our booth at the Providence Fine Furnishings Show this weekend if you are in the neighborhod.

Iana and Geoff would love to see you and you will be eligible to use this nifty coupon too!
