Vintage Love

My love of typography has found a new outlet of obsession with these vintage chairs recovered in fabric reproductions from taken from vintage British transfer route bus signs. Designer DeWayne Lumpkin is the creative force behind British Route Sign Designs based in Grant’s Pass, Oregon. He offers fabric yardage, some very desirable vintage seating upholstered with the fabrics, pillows and the vintage signs themselves. If only I had room for one of these chairs!

Alone in a Crowd

511 miniature figurines from all walks of life, genders, and ages walk alone in a crowd just under the surface of a clear table top by London-based designer Rolf Sachs. From the designer: “Barely any of the figures interact with the exception of society’s crucial units, such as families, couples and lovers. From afar, one sees only groups and crowds yet when seen up-close, you recognize that each figure is entirely individual and you can discover random and humorous frames of everyday life.” It's like an overhead diorama locked inside a coffee table, I truly love it!

Namesake Signage

A close friend is currently in Italy and sent me this photo he shot in Torino today. A wonderful gift of my name as signage. I have a feeling I'll be using this image for many things. Thanks Steve! Wishing all a great summer weekend.
