Introducing Co-lab.


autumn 2011

Co-LAB.

C

hairloom and Super Rural are proud to present Co-Lab. This is our design

lab. In our digital pages we can experiment, mixing old with new, creating (and recreating) pieces for your home that allow for decorating with self-expression and individuality. We believe that a successful space is design collage of styles. Period, style, wood color, etc.… do not have to ‘match’ and it’s generally much better when they don’t. Color, pattern and texture can be the unifying elements that make it all work. The most exciting living spaces tend to be the ones created over time, where pieces are added in layers of style and personal meaning. The empty space is gradually filled with basic items, perhaps a hand-me-down or an heirloom or two, utilitarian pieces, other things whose only purpose is to be beautiful, interesting, or a reminder of a place and time. New things come in, some may go out or move to another room—like the nursery or home office—as you reach another stage in your life. Co-Lab exists to encourage individual creativity for your home. Our goal is to enthusiastically bring our products and ideas to you seasonally through theses pages. We are proud to present Co-Lab. — Molly andrews & Tracy Jenkins

Thoughts from the laundromat...

B

ecoming new again is the laundromat’s unspoken message to me. This local

laundromat in Ardmore, Pennsylvania seemed the perfect setting for Chairloom’s finished pieces. Owner Bela Kovac told me that his laundromat opened in 1952, and oddly enough, it’s renovation was scheduled for the same day I showed up with photographer Michele deNardo and a van full of furniture.


New again...

Renovation Change Soap stop Lost & damaged I love the signage in this place! Molly Andrews, Chairloom


thoughts from the laundromat

W

hy was it that Rubie Green’s East Village fabric looked so at home in the

sunlight that streamed in through the cloudy windows? The suzani ottoman seemed right at home too, as did the Trina Turk orange zebra fabric in front of the stainless steel appliances. Virginia Johnson pillows, Proud Mary’s Guatemalan textile, the bold chocolate brown chevron… Why do I feel so at home in this place? Is it the unspoken message that resonates for me? I need change. I hate feeling lost and damaged. A soap stop sounds perfect. My hope is that Co-Lab. can help its audience reflect on what it means to feel at home, think about small (or large) renovation and giving our own found furniture (and also ourselves) a soap stop.

AMY’S CHAIR (and ottoman, too...)

T

Amy Voloshin’s Custom fabric

his chair and ottoman were found last summer and purchased because of their

legs, curves, and overall shape and frame. When Chairloom client Amy Voloshin, the art director of Print Fresh Studio, told me she and her husband were looking for a comfortable vintage chair and ottoman, good for reading, I immediately sent them a picture of these. They bought them sight unseen (as most Chairloom customers do). Amy designed and hand block printed her very own textile for this unique project, giving it added meaning and purpose. The frames were sanded to help give the pair a fresh, slightly modern feel.

ASHLEY’S CHAIR Sister parish / tucker

A

shley found this chair for $40 on Craig’s List while on a quick trip to

Connecticut. She knew instinctively that it would clean up beautifully and be a perfect addition to her living room. Like many Chairloom clients, Ashley was willing to splurge on an unusual, modern graphic textile. Ashley chose Sister Parish’s ‘Tucker’ because of how it would complement the shape of the chair, and because of her love and appreciation for such an accomplished designer. Ashley’s blog meetmeinphiladelphia.blogspot.com is best known for its resourceful approach to great design while operating on a tight budget. Ashley encourages her readers to ‘bring color, vision and creativity to their homes — one piece at a time.’

round a year and a half ago we bought a small, 200 year-old ship builder’s

cottage in the Hudson Valley, about 130 miles outside of New York City. It is a modest saltbox with a summer cellar — a kitchen in the basement of the house — with a brick floor (that handled the leaking from last year’s 40 year winter and this summer’s hurricane Irene with Yankee solidity) out of which one of the houses’s early owners operated a fish market on Fridays. I wasn’t sure how to furnish the house in a way that would fit

ADA’S ROOM

I

n the city Ada’s room is compact, but we’re not complaining. In New York, as long

as it has a door (even if it doesn’t have a window) it’s a bedroom! In Athens Ada has an airy room big enough for a chair of its own. This room is mainly used for guests because Ada sleeps on a daybed upstairs in the attic loft bedroom with us, but Ada keeps some of her favorite stuffed animals on the mantle, her rocking horse in the decommissioned fireplace and her toy cars and race track are craftily stored under the queen-sized ‘big girl’ bed.

STYLE CRUSH

YVESTOWN

Y

vonne Eijkenduijn of The Yvestown Blog has the most lovely and beautifully

natural light-filled house. She lives ‘in an old gentleman’s house from 1896 in Lommel, Belgium very close to the Dutch border.’ Yvonne purchased our For Like Ever poster and installed it in her insanely gorgeous study. She documented the stages of finishing the room along the way, and with each step it looked so perfect and ‘finished’ until she’d post another photo showing yet another layer of gentle refinement. If Yvonne hadn’t captured my heart with her beautiful home that looks so deceptively effortless, she would have had it with her glowing photograph of my favorite flowers of all time, pink ranunculus.

WE LIKE... Woody low shelving system A cleverly simply ladder-style shelving system made of soap treated oak beams, colorful powder coated bent steel shelves and screws.

Hemp braided rug Calypso Home’s neutral and affordable rug works well with colorful accents and patterns in the room.

Painted Antler Cassandra Smith’s found and hand-painted domestic and Sika deer antlers are so beautiful. If you see one you love, you’d better snap it up, each one is unique and they go fast!

ABC’s thonet chair My parents had Thonet chairs when I was a kid and I still get a little nostalgic when I see them. ABC Home has re-issued this classic design in Hot Pink.

FOR LIKE EVER

Backstory

I

n my second year at the MFA graphic design program at Yale I designed this poster

as part of my thesis topic, Do-It-Yourself (DIY), I was exploring the different ways we can customize and re-purpose everyday things. I had taught a workshop the previous summer and one of my students kept using the phrase ‘For like ever...’ (always one of my favorites) over and over with a sharp Valley-girl tone and it kept ringing in my ears afterward. In 2004 after graduation, my classmate Jeffrey Lai encouraged me to screenprint a very small run of the poster and he helped me hand make a batch of 20 in exchange for one for himself.


FOR LIKE EVER

In 2005 we printed the poster again, but this time is was run offset on extremely thin pink paper, the exact kind that is stocked at your local copy shop that fades in the smallest amount of sun. We printed it in a fluorescent pinky-poppy-red ink that almost looked orange in certain lights. It was the ‘b-side’ of a type specimen poster. We had hundreds of them printed and they were all folded into a tidy little mailer. We keep 50 copies of this print run off to the side unfolded, for no particular reason, and decided to offer them for sale for $10.00 (postage included). Every now and then we sold one. And every now and then we pulled one out and wrapped a present with it. Then Brian Murphy of Loeffler Randall purchased one and framed it, which seemed very novel and exciting to us! Not too long afterward he and his immensely talented wife, designer Jessie Randall’s apartment was profiled in a small feature in Elle Accessories and you could see our poster on their wall brightened by a point and shoot flash. That was a huge month for us—we sold at least five of our posters…


FOR LIKE EVER

In early 2006 Brian mentioned that he and Jessie were going to be featured in Domino magazine. They weren’t sure how the finished piece might turn out, but there was a chance it could be a cover story. He asked if we were prepared and I said we were. After the Elle Accessories poster blitz we had at least 30 copies left! I was that clueless. I was excited for Brian and Jessie and thought the poster might appear faintly in a background shot somewhere at best, or would be completely cropped out at worst. When the September issue appeared, my brother called me breathless. He said, ‘Okay. Your poster is on the cover. It’s in the middle of the page. It’s big. It’s as big as the woman in the photograph!’ I dialed up Domino online, picked myself up off the floor and called our printer to make a proper version of the poster once our vast supply of 30 was gone, and mailing tubes and I have been roommates ever since.
