What a concept- a paper chair!!

Pulp Chair 1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

     It looks like an egg carton, is affordable and is made from nontoxic materials for small bodies- the perfect chair for a child. This is a fun design and makes a lot of sense for little ones. Once the chair is outgrown or used to it’s fullest, whichever comes first, it can be recycled. It’s made with a paper pulp and cornstarch mixture and has the same strength as plastic but is biodegradable.

     The idea came when Swedish graduate student and architecture firm partnered. The idea was to come up with an affordable chair made from paper pulp. After a bit of research the concept turned into a children’s chair due to the strength issues of the Durapulp material it’s made out of. The first prototype of the chair was shown this spring in Milan with a favorable reception. Good news is the chair will be in the market of $50 each once they are produced.

Fall Colors…

September 21, 2009

This week marks the beginning of fall.  Whenever I  see the words “autumnal equinox” it brings to mind the beautiful New England autumns I grew up in and the warm glow of the colors of fall.  The yellows, oranges and reds of the changing leaves are colors that can brought into our homes in wonderful accents. Here are few examples of a vintage Kayseri rug,  velvet accent pillow, fabrics and lighting that can bring that warm glow in or just add a pop of color from Adam & Viktoria, F. Schumacher & Co., and Galbraith & Paul.

BIG news!

September 11, 2009

Thanks to Wilma for such great coverage of our business and Leslie’s award!

We are so appreciative of the coverage of Big Sky.  We have enjoyed working on many kinds of projects in Wilmington over the years and getting to know our clients.  This project was one that we are particularly fond of because of the experience we had with our clients.  We would like to thank them as well for allowing us to have the fun “photo shoot” for this article in their home.

Here are a few more images of other great materials we used in their home that were not pictured in the article!
