The Nest

The Nest magazine did a multi-page spread on the Harlem House in their latest issue, with our work in the office prominently featured. Thanks for the shout-out Alysia!

real world strikes again

The past few weeks have been rather hectic for all of us. Those of us still in school (everyone except for David) had classes start up again, so our free time got drastically reduced. We're almost to the finish line on the bench for David and Alysia. We hit a little snag in the form of a budget cap that doesn't allow for the metal legs we had wanted to use. Didn't realize how expensive that sort of thing would be. We sketched out some wood leg alternatives but we all think the metal is much better, so we're going to eat that cost. Lesson learned: make sure to nail down a budget before going beyond initial concepts.
We've also been contacted with more furniture requests by several other people that we met at various Green Drinks or simply found us on flickr. We'll keep updating the blog as these new opportunities progress.
