A SQUARED ART Rough Lux

Industrial Chic

Redux Refuse

“If rough luxe has a mantra, it’s authenticity...an embrace of imperfection…in the homes of tastemakers from Belgium to the Hudson River Valley…the idea of utilizing the ubiquitous, the ordinary, the imperfect…Old things are used in their capacity to disrupt the smugness of the new…a catalog of examples: the palazzo where Cy Twombly settled in Rome, Maxwell’s Plum, the New York restaurant outfitted with the trappings of defunct saloons; ‘70s exposed brick… There’s a friendliness to it, maybe an egolessness—just letting certain things be.” The Editors, WSJ The Magazine from THE WALL STREET JOURNAL Fall 2009

Җ

We love the tension of simplicity and intricacy in well-made parts. We love the natural and the scour that reveal essential. We love the old for what it tells us of our past. We love the lost and declining industries that made America great.

Җ

We celebrate by reclaiming and repurposing what was once forgotten. We celebrate by finding, fixing, and freshening the discarded and seemingly unimportant. We celebrate by redefining the mundane into meaningful. We celebrate by creating from what we love unique expressions of art.

Җ “Everything we see falls apart, vanishes. Nature is always the same, but nothing in her that appears to us, lasts. Our art must render the thrill of her permanence along with her elements, the appearance of all her changes. It must give us the taste of her eternity.” Paul Cezanne
