Put the FUN back in Function

I read somewhere, that every room should have that "special" chair. It adds personality, zip and FUN. Sculptural yet functional. Furniture as art has been growing like crazy for years..   Design Miami went from a small venue to a giant in a very short time.  Consumers are more picky about their purchases. cookie-cutter and mass produced items loose their worth and the attention.

As a furniture designer,  helping clients accentuate their personal style while creating a piece that stands alone as art, and also finds balance in the decor, is truly gratifying. And because of my love of the chair,  I am creating a line of "Accessory Seats".

Investing in one piece that tickles you, every time you walk in a room is priceless. So get out their and find you Fun.

CONTEST: Name the Andi-Le “Stools” & WIN Your Very Own!

Andi-Le is looking to give our one-of-a-kind handcrafted stools a signature name truly deserving of their quality and style. Even though these beauties are technically called “stools,” we’d like to hear your creative suggestions on a catchy word or phrase that would perfectly match their unique charm. The person who comes up with the perfect name will *WIN* one of the Andi-Le “Stools” valued at $950!!!

Now for a bit about our stools:

The “Stools” are made of recycled Aspen logs and other indigenous trees to the Aspen Colorado area. Some are hand carved, others are left natural but enhanced to bring out the unique qualities of each one.  The painted or stained finish is lacquered for a fun and cool contemporary look. Cushions are made of either a faux Mongolian lamb, or a leather/suede shag.

On the “Kente and Dot” design we use Faux Mongolian lamb cushions, and on the “Shaggy 1 and Shaggy2″ we incorporate black leather/suede shag cushions.

They are fabulous anywhere within your home, and make for a perfect conversation piece when not in use.
