Friday Fancies

Happy Friday! At the time of this scheduled post, Jack and I will have begun our ascent of Mt. Washington. July has been a busy month for us; hopefully August will allow a few more hours for finishing current works in progress. Nonetheless, enjoy a few things that have tickled our fancy this week.


Joe Scorsone and Alice Drueding are both professors in Graphic and Interactive Design, and have been  collaborating on poster designs since 1986. Their works tend toward minimal, often with a social or political message that packs a punch, and I admire their ability to communicate complex perspectives so effectively in graphics. The poster above is a personal favorite, but the catalog of available prints and past work is long and very worth your time. (image credit: ScorsoneDrueding)

 It’s already been open for weeks, but the Big Bambú exhibition at the Met is something we’re definitely planning to explore before it closes in October. A gigantic sculptural installation on the roof of the museum, Doug and Mike Starn’s bamboo masterpiece invites visitors to climb on, around and through it and to explore bamboo as a building material. I’ve been stalking images of the exhibit on Flickr, and it looks to be right up our alley. Have you seen it? What did you think? (image credit: Rocco S. Cetera)

Not only am I smitten with these cast-stone tufted ottomans, but also with Katie Armour, The Neo-Traditionalist, for featuring them and dozens of other lovely things daily. Katie has a keen eye for thoroughly modern takes on classics and generally charming pieces for the home. She also has a special weekend coming up – congratulations! – but she’s kept terrific content coming, and you should take a look yourself.
