Dennis over at American Furnishings wrote to tell me about their new line of vintage industrial furniture, and I'm loving it! They use items found in abandoned factories and re-purpose them into useful everyday items. Some of their pieces would make amazing butcher's blocks, and I'm thinking of using one of their shelves in Theo's office.
I'm a crazy fan of woodblock prints - so I nearly died when I saw this two-dimensional steer sculpture! The Spring '08 issue of O at Home features the country retreat of Bil Ehrlich, a New York real estate developer, and his family. Ehrlich created the sculpture himself by magnifying an 18th century woodblock print and then transferring that cute cow onto outdoor-sign plastic. Perfect!
