4 designers. 4 pieces of oak. 4 different ideas.
What can you make out of a piece of oak?
If you didn't already know that we work with some very talented local designers, here's more proof. We asked four local furniture designers and makers (Squared Furniture, OCD Furniture, Tandem Made, and Live Oak Ironworks) to take the same simple piece of 20x54 oak slab and turn it into something new. No limits. No criteria, other than that they had to use the oak. The finish product is four new beautiful and very different from the next pieces. Stop into the store and vote for the piece you're most drawn to. We will have them on display through May.
Live Oak Iron Works
We have Minnesota pride. And apparently, so do a lot of people in the Twin Cities. When we launched our website in April, the first item that sold was a kitschy Minnesota Shelf (shown left). It was sweet, with a textured colored plastic backing. After it sold, we had several people asking when we were going to get more in stock, and they were all disappointed when we shared the news that it was a one-of-a-kind, vintage piece.
Because we like all of you, and hate to disappoint, we decided to make our own version of the Minnesota shelf. We worked with Patrick Simpson, of Minneapolis Joinery. It was a fun, and fairly simple process and with Patrick's help, we decided to have 2 color options using a technique to print the colors on the wood to show the grain. They're amazing.
