Sand and Birch: Softpipe Lounger

The Sofpipe Lounger

If you look at this chair, seating on it is as if you are going to take place on the lap of an elegantly long legged lady. I featured Sand and Birch earlier with their Velvet Sofa. They are Trendhunters (albeit with a typo in their port folio which is named: “Snadbirch”) like yours truly.

I didn’t know china chair teapots existed, but they do.

About Paul Cardew, Master Teapot Maker
Over the last fifteen years Paul Cardew has established himself as the world’s preeminent designer and producer of collectible teapots.

His talents have also been widely recognized by museums art galleries and the British Tea Council for whom he designed a special range of teapots in the late 80’s.

His obsession with producing ever more imaginative and intricate designs has remarkably not sent him “potty”. His youthfulness and energy bear witness to the naturally reviving qualities of tea.

From its press page I gathered following:

What is Etsy?

Etsy is an online marketplace for buying & selling all things handmade.

Its intention is to offer viable alternatives to mass-produced objects in the world marketplace, and to encourage consumers to be aware of the social and environmental implications of their purchases.

The connection between producer and consumer has been lost. Etsy has been created to help them reconnect, and swing the pendulum back to a time when we bought our bread from the baker, food from the grocer, and shoes from the cobbler.

Etsy’s Beginning

Etsy was conceived by Rob Kalin (27) in early 2005. A painter, carpenter, and photographer, Rob found there was no viable marketplace to exhibit and sell his creations online- other E-commerce sites having become too inundated with fraud, overstock electronics, and broken appliances. Ever industrious, he, along with Chris Maguire (25) and Haim Scoppik (27), designed the site, wrote the code, assembled the servers, spliced the cables, and launched Etsy on June 18th, 2005 after only three sleepless months.

Brooklyn-based Etsy now has 48 full-time employees, approximately 650,000 registered users, 60,000 of whom are individual artists selling more than 950,000 of their handmade creations.

Etsy has its own Blog: The Storque.

About Wil Holman:

Will Holman is an artist and writer who just graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in architecture.

He is living in the high Sonoran desert in the middle of Arizona, working on an experimental architecture project (www.arcosanti.org). I weld and pour concrete by day, and work on silk screen prints and furniture by night. He hopes to have new prints on the regular starting in late January or early February ’08.
