I love the simplicity of this new store.

From canvas:

Welcome to canvas, a new collection of ceramics, wooden objects, textiles, accessories and furniture for the home created by artisans and craftsmen from the US and abroad.

canvas is a journey around the globe that combines natural materials with interesting textures. Unstructured, soft shapes and subtle colours define a look that is understated yet elegant.

With a continued pursuit of products made under fair trade and green principles, we aim for a collection that represents simple, sustainable style.

Fivecat Studio in THIS OLD HOUSE Magazine

A few months back, I posted about the photo shoot for an upcoming article about our own dining room project. The piece is published in the current (April) issue of This Old House magazine, and this week, the article was posted on their website as well.

Annmarie and I are pretty excited about the whole thing. Its our first “national” exposure. We’ve been fans of This Old House since we were kids, so to see our hard work associated with TOH is a really big thrill.

Stay tuned for more Fivecat Studio work among the pages of TOH. We’ve been told that we may be reading more about our little cottage in the woods of Chappaqua.

Frank Gehry: The Houses

He has created art museums that have put little known cities on the cultural map and penned designs for quarter-billion dollar concert halls. Most famous for his metallic paneled sculptures of flamboyant architecture, Frank Gehry has also designed his fair share of houses. In fact, his own home in Santa Monica, CA is the project that brought him into the now blinding “starchitect” spotlight.

In October, architecture and design publishing house, Rizzoli released a new monograph dedicated to the simpler residential side of the world famous architect. It’s on my wish list.

Now That’s a Motorcycle

I don’t ride, but I love motorcycle design. FastCompany.com has a great article about a U.K. design firm that has developed a series of bikes that will, for sure, influence motorcycle design for many years to come.
