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.
