Ellipse at Dumbarton Oaks in acrylic/mixed media on canvas - $4900
I stumbled on Jo and her outstanding abstract paintings during last year’s Great Falls Art Studio Tour. And even though that was last October, her work never left my mind. Jo’s artwork fits in beautifully with the furniture in our Fairfax showroom.
I made the long drive out from Arlington, VA to Easton, MD to meet Margot. And boy was I happy when I got there. Margot is such a wonderful host, not just in her studio and home, but her whole town. She took me on a tour and told me a little bit about the history of the area.
We have 3 new wonderful artists that we want to share with you. We will be posting a highlight on each artist for the next week, so be sure to tune in. They will be displaying their artwork in our showrooms until June. Hurry in to see what they have to offer.
In our Shirlington showroom: Mary Eggers
Being a fan of Hardwood Artisans, Mary stopped by our Shirlington showroom one day and after noticing that we display local artwork, decided to ask what she could do to get her artwork in here. All she had to was show me her website, and I was immediately captivated.
Semi-Finalist in the Washington Post Peep Contest!
Peepwood Artisans Logo
Peep! Peep! It is amazing all of the words you can make a Peep pun out of. Peepwood Artisans, Peeplydes, Murpeepy beds, peepsters – we have been rolling on the floor laughing at how Peeplarious the word Peep can be.
We advertise in the Washington Post Magazine every week and for years have been laughing at the Peep contest they host every year. My background is in interior architecture and I spent years in school building tiny little models with exact-o blades and glue. My co-worker and one of our very talented furniture designers, Katie has a similar background. We decided to make the jump and enter the Peep contest with Peepwood Artisans delivering furniture to Peeptown (Georgetown) to an apeepment on top of Peeplyde’s. (See what I’m talking about with the Peep puns?).
After our planning phase we went onto getting the structure built. Here is our AutoCAD drawing of the box the shop built for us.
Come see us at the Architectural Digest Show at Pier 94 March 22nd – March 25. We are happy to announce the unveiling of our newest design – The Motus Desk. Keep an eye out for pictures and a blog about designing the desk during and after the show.
