On my morning breakfast routine to Chick-fil-a I noticed a building renovation in progress. Behind the building I was a dumpster filled with lots of interesting materials that I had actually been looking for to start designing for the Spring 2011 line (yes I am already designing that far ahead). So after a photo shoot and moving a conference table to its permanent home, my staff and I made a field trip to the dumpster. I believe we made 3 full pickup truck loads back to the warehouse. What better way to start a furniture design than using a material that would normally end up in the land fill. We will soon be converting this and "waste" into high design! Tomorrow I will be visiting a friend's house whom is undergoing a renovation. I can't wait to see what materials that I might find.
