This Pittsburg home, recently featured in The New York Times, is a modern take on an old tradition: a business owner living above his shop. When owner Bob Zielinski first showed his idea of a 53 foot long residence cantilevered above his glass factory to contractors, they told him he would have to go the people who build bridges and highways to make it happen, and so he did. After three years of construction, the Zielinski’s now live in an industrial masterpiece that floats above the rest of the city and allows for a very quick commute to the office.

The last few days we have been running around nonstop between meetings. Although it is always great to be out and about checking on our clients and projects, today is a much needed “lock ourselves in the office until every email is answered and every item on the to-do list is complete (ha!)” sort of day. Who knows, maybe we’ll finally even decide on a new paint color from the options we put up on the wall a several weeks ago.

I love the versatility of Butterfly chairs, also known as Hardoy chairs, sling chairs, and BKF chairs. Any chair with so many aliases has to be great right? They can be used indoors or out, folded up and stored easily, come in several frame finishes, and the covers can easily be changed. Best of all, they are affordable and very easy to find!

What was once an old barn is now a retreat for a family with deep-seated roots in the horse racing community. The bright pink and cobalt blue accents might seem odd to a stranger, but they hold a special significance to the family, whose old racing colors they were mimicked after.

Last week we had the opportunity to attend the Las Vegas Market. For those of you who are not familiar with this designer dreamland, it is an international showcase for furniture and textile manufacturers that spans over five million square feet of convention space! It was a great opportunity to see some new vendors and get excited about upcoming lines. It certainly revitalized our creative juices and we cannot wait to start showing our new finds to clients!
