awesome awesomeness mondays...


Found objects like discarded shopping carts, thrift store finds and other forgotten pieces get transformed into functional works of art in Doug Meyer's hands. I saw his work at High Point this year and was taken in not only by the originality and attention to detail, but by the work ethic that is a way of life for what he does.

Even if you don't need a shopping cart love seat, you have to admire the work, originality and skill that has gone into making one. The consoles, desks, media cabinets, etc are a perfect example of making the everyday utilitarian furniture item into a practical piece of art.

I don't think I want to own the shopping cart love seat, but I want know someone who does. Or visit it in Doug's studio. Because I loved riding in shopping carts when I was wee-ish. And Doug's design is the closest I can get as an adult. (Because we're not even going to acknowledge the existence of those giant shopping carts. Those are ridiculous.)
