As 2013 draws to a close, we wanted to share a few last events for the year.

Opening December 6th and 7th is Light Art Design’s annual show, ‘Metal’. In it’s third year, Metal promises to be one of the best holiday shows in the Triangle. If you can’t make it to the opening, don’t fret – the show runs until January 25th.

Debuting at Metal is Dalton, a new task chair for 2014. Available in ash with a white powder-coat, and walnut with a matte black powder-coat (among many custom colors), Dalton will be available to order directly online.


In addition to a preview of what’s new for 2014, we’ve started a new ‘Trade Tools’ series of objects. The first pieces include a bronze roofing hatchet, and bronze ball peen hammer with a hand-carved walnut handle, both cast at the Liberty Arts foundry in downtown Durham. These objects are on exhibit in ‘Metal’ as well.


Next week, our friends over at Area Modern in Durham are throwing a party celebrating their one year anniversary. In addition to plenty of bubbly, be sure you swing by to enter a drawing for a Not Your Mothers Jewelry Box. While you’re there, ask them what they’re doing to help bring the furniture industry back to North Carolina.


Lastly, if you haven’t found everything on your holiday shopping list, be sure to check out our shop! From hand-knit merino wool scarves to unique design objects, there is something that will surely pique your interest for the handmade modern.
