tree artwork at ABC Carpet and Home

While I was in New York last month covering ICFF, I was able to stop by ABC Carpet & Home for the first time. I snapped a picture of this great art display they had on the wall that ahd all these trees images scattered about. I couldn't find out who the artist was, but if anyone knows, let us know!

Amish Poly Lumber Fan Back Chair

If you're looking for a little home-y style faux bois for your patio or lawn, check out this Amish Poly Lumber Fan Back Chair, from Dutch Crafters. It's made of "Poly Lumber", a wood subsititue made from recycled materials, that won't splinter, rot, fade or warp. It's mildew resistant and termite resistant. Available here. We think they're pretty cute!

For all of you Paul Frank fans who have been following the big drama there, some may be happy to know that Paul Frank Sunich, the artist who created the monkey Julius and friends, has started a new design studio, called Tree Stitch Design. Not sure what type of products he will be producing, but keep an eye out- I'm sure we'll be hearing more soon!

Timber Triptic Slat Set. Made from 100% sustainable recycled polyester. Handprinted and handmade in the USA with environmentally-friendly inks with no chemical waste or disposal generated. All paper waste from this process is repurposed as shredded packing material. Product is recyclable at the end of its life-cycle. Product comes fully assembled and fitted with two hangers. Triptic Set includes three 24" x 78" slats with one overarching design across them.


DuPont, the manufacturer of Corian, has marked the composite material’s 40th birthday by commissioning 40 designers to create products using the material. This collaboration is with David Rockwell.
"Our contribution to this exhibition merges fine craftsmanship with advanced technology to create a rich, yet subtle metallic wood grain pattern. The end result – Gold Grain tabletop objects and occasional tables – are a sophisticated and glamorous play on the natural and the manmade,” said David Rockwell, of the Rockwell Group
