This sofa is inspired perfectly by its name. Made by designer Christian Vivanco, it can be used as a day bed or casual couch. While it comes in a variety of colors, the green wins for me. Maybe I should DIY my own version of this...

This morning I came across this article on the PS1 MoMA Blog, which celebrates the work of the late Tom Luckey. His magical and beautiful climbers exist in children's museum's, malls and marketplaces across the country. How did I miss climbing on one of these as a child??? Anyhow, enjoy pretending you are small enough to get into one...

Last night was the $99 sale at The Soap Factory, an annual fundraiser where artists donate 8" x 10" works which are then sold for $99 each. My piece is somewhere on this wall, can you guess which one it is? I'll give you a hint...it was made using the CNC router.
Coinciding with the $99 Sale was Andy Ducett's ongoing exhibition (runs Sept. 8 - Nov. 11), "Why We Do This." It is a truly amazing show that overtakes the entire space, which if you know the Soap, is HUGE! Here are some snapshots from my favorites parts. If you get a chance, I highly recommend seeing this one for yourself while it's up.
This sort of looks like my dad's basement.

Christmas trees and fake snow wrapped in plastic.
Giant Battleship? Yes please!

Hallway of white balloons and bubble wrap.
