Favorite material: “We've lately been really into oak, sandblasted or turned on a lathe and then color washed. We’re actually working on a five-piece collection for Urban Outfitters that’s all about sand-blasting and color-washing. It has a very beachy, rugged feel. We also recently came across the amazing scrap hex bar at our steel supplier. We were looking for material to use on our next generation of mini-pedestals, as we're having a hard time sourcing enough candlestick holders to keep up with the demand. While looking for base material for the mini-peds, we found this 2-inch hex rod about 6 inches long. It wasn't wide enough to use for the pedestals, but it was so strong graphically and had such a nice weight to it that we had to use it for something — paperweights."
