I haven’t been to Housewerks as much since I moved more than a few city blocks from them, but I stopped in on Friday to drop something off there, and I will also be there on the 18th for a wedding party.
There’s always so much to see at Housewerks, and this hilarious bench greeted me on my way in. I love the play on words, with the carriage trade, meaning both posh families, and people with babies in carriages. Very clever.
There were a couple of sinks out back.This great old porcelain one would be great for a laundry room, and this steel one would rock in the right kind of kitchen!It would work perfectly with my steel kitchen counter/desk.
If you’ve been reading Pigtown*Design for a while, you know I found the optimal shoe holder, but this would come in a close second. I’d swap out the numbers for the names of the shoes therein.
This table was amazing. It came from an old printers, and the table is wood with a stone top for rolling out the inks. Ben and Tracey added wheels to make it a little easier to move, since it weighs a ton!
One of the most amazing pieces at Housewerks this time was this incredible dresser and a bed-frame. The dresser’s workmanship is so fine that the insides of the drawers are made from birds-eye maple, which is generally used for the main part of a piece.
