I know it looks great in the super awesome lifestyle photo
Homemade pillows shaped like skateboards, cinder block and pallet furniture, treasures on the curb. Okay, maybe pre 1990. These days if it’s not on the computer with a button that changes it to any color I want - then forget it. College students love the Ikea challenge. Flat pack box at the door!? All it takes is an allen wrench and an altered state and blammo - one time use furniture.
Hopefully you have fond memories of your roommate days and maybe you now realize it could be time to think a little more outside the box.
Be one with your furniture?
So, you think maybe you are officially grown up. Scanning Wayfair, Overstock, All Modern or maybe just google image searching endlessly to get close. Alas, but no cookie. You find something that kinda fits and could possibly inspire you to maybe call your cable company this year and threaten them with cancellation, but certainly not take you to Hollywood script writer status.
What now? Call my brother-in-law that took a semester of interior design? Admit defeat? Hey, wait a minute...remember when craftsmen would build things out of wood with their hands for the sheer pleasure of creating? I think they hang out online now. Places like Etsy, CustomMade OR somewhere deep in the mountains of North Carolina.
If a tree could talk...wait it can, and it talks to John Northrup at Blowing Rock WoodWorks
Deep in the mountains of North Carolina and of course online at BlowingRockWoodWorks.com you will find your perfect desk and dining table and just about anything you can dream of for your home, office or Hollywood studio. The words, “It’s a friggin tree, people”, resound daily around our shop because we know each piece of wood we use to make our furniture has personality. In most cases it is well over a hundred and fifty years old. Imagine what kind of knots and bends and wrinkles you will have at that age. If you understand things do get better with age then you can appreciate how magnificent a solid slab of walnut becomes when a furniture designer like John Northrup gets his hands on it. Step out of the box and call, stop by or visit us online.
