Judith Seng’s Trift series: “I think I found Judith’s Trift pieces on a blog last year when I was preparing to open the New York store, and I contacted her wanting her to design a display for me. I love working with natural materials like hardwood and marble, and what’s so great about the Trift pieces is that they’re so natural and yet it’s nature that’s been imposed on by people. It’s very poignant. I like that although it’s very graphic, there’s something really subtle about the bleached wood, and something very soothing about it as an object, like nature slowly fading into our modern life. I think we’re going to carry the series in our New York shop soon. For the store, my sensibility is really about using generic materials but adding colors to it to make it different, and the Trifts really match that sensibility.”
