New Work. Pendleton.


New Work.  It’s almost as if my life isn’t just all about Design Star.  Almost. 

The Pendleton Catalogue finally dropped and I was supes excited to get it in the mail. So much work i’ve done lately either is not going to be published til next summer or is not stuff I really want in my book.  But this, i like.  This is just a sample from the first catalogue that I did.  More to come. 
Heres’ how it went down, for those who are interested:
Maryalice gave me the art direction, where she wanted to play on the clothes conservative and classic nature.  So we did a throwback 1960’s feel – when suits were suits and men were men.  
I figured everyone read national geographics a lot, loved pops of yellow and had loved all-things-circle back then, right? 
 So here’s what I did:
I sourced the grasscloth and wallpaper down here, shipped it up to Portland.  Adhered it to the flats.  Chair railed one of them, painted the bottom semi-gloss (so it reflects).  Then I bought enough 8″ pine planks (and cut them accordingly) to look like old wood flooring.  We stained them a trillion times so they would be dark, slapped on a coat of poly, then staggered them. 
 I rented that desk from The good mod (where I bought my sofa), it’s amazing.  That topiary (top pic) was awesome.  HUGE.  and was a pretty penny from The Jealous Gardner.  The rest of the stuff I got at thrift stores, vintage stores, etc.  
Waddya think?  It was shot by Jose Martinez, with his crew Eric, Pat and Anton.
