Lots of things to talk about regarding this room, however our focus is the amazing wall sculpture attributed to Curtis Jere. Curtis Freiler and Jerry Fels, the sculptor artisans behind Curtis Jere, also happened to be brothers-in-law-married to sisters.  The company, Artisan House, was founded in 1964. Their goal: to produce beautiful, quality, gallery artwork for the masses. And that they did. They ended up selling the company in 1972, following it was sold and resold a handful of times. In 2007 Jonathon Adler commissioned Artisan House to reproduce some of there iconic pieces. Confession: I could spend hours researching and sourcing these pieces.  Not sure why they speak to me so powerfully, maybe the varying metals, finishes, silhouettes, patina sum up one of the things I cherish about vintage design: timelessness.  When something is made well, is an extension of a person’s creativity and passion, it resonates beyond one particular style. Pieces like these invoke conversation. Great visual interest. Gutsiness really.  Take a look.  Had a hard time not posting a kazillion pieces.

Love to see how people use these off beat quirky beautiful pieces in their homes.  They can be quite pricey, for sure an investment piece. But they will stand the test of time, of that I am certain.
