Program your DVRs, set your TiVos and get the VHS tape ready to record, Kiersten Hathcock from Mod Mom Furniture will be on this Friday’s (4/1) 8pm/7pm central episode of Shark Tank on ABC. In the preview above you’ll see Kiersten for a second say “Everything is riding on this.” Ohhhhh the suspense! A hint as to how it went down, ABC put out a blurb that says “sharks fight over mother’s furniture company.” Gooooooo Kiersten!
I found myself feeling really happy when I looked at this picture last night and then started scouring flickr for some favorite black and white (and charcoal) images to share with you in tomorrow’s “Flickr Faves on Fridays” post. Then I thought, why not share the image that inspired me in the first place as well? It comes from our very own Ali Beckford, who is a super-stylist and photographer (and hilarious, when you click over to her blog, make sure to check out this post). She and he professional photographer S.O. Cooper love to snag their neighbor’s toss-aside furniture from their hallway and they scored big time with this dresser.
As for some of the other pieces, Ali tracked down the camera print after spotting it in this Unison Porter bedding shot:
The artist is Rod Hunting. The vintage clock came from an old school in Olympia Washington. Doesn’t it remind you of being bored out of your mind in some high school class, praying for the second hand to move, thinking that the bell was NEVER going to ring!
Last weekend the creatives over here at Design Public redesigned the site. I was cut off from you for about a week, and I have to say, it made me feel a little panicky. I had this big burst of creativity last weekend and I couldn’t get into the blog and to write and upload and link and share! and it was a bummer! I missed you!
So, my WordPress is all updated and turned about and it’s taking a little getting used to – it’s making me cross-eyed at the moment, but I’m sure I’ll find there are very good reasons why everything moved around, and I’ll wind up thanking my lucky stars for it. I’ve been looking at the new design for a week and although I am always scared of change, I’m digging it (BTW, I had nothing to do with it, so it’s as new to me as it is to you). I am a big believer that less is more, especially on a website. Especially on a website full of modern products.
But enough about what I think, what do you think? Is there anything about the old site you miss? Is the navigation easy and intuitive? Is there anything you’re finding tricky to figure out? Let us know in the comments section. The main reason we started a blog was to create a little community and be able to receive feedback with ease.
"I just discovered your site yesterday (and I'm already ordering from it!) I even forwarded it on to a friend. I was giving up on finding bedding that I liked, so it's nice to know there are others out there who appreciate a mod(ern) sensibility. And your rugs are too die for!"
