Sometimes we need touchstones to remind ourselves that there is room in the world for every creative voice. Us “creatives” need the work and the world needs to experience what we have to give it. That’s why designing and seeing this chair realized provides such smoldering satisfaction. My intention for this chair is placing them on the front deck of the soon to be completed surf shack and restaurant on a secluded beach in Rancho Santana, Nicaragua. A resort project I am continuing to work on.
My inspiration was one of my favorite clients and dear friends. A disarmingly laid back, cool couple who know how to find delight in their own pleasure of life. A skill perhaps only the most actualized develop.
The rocking chair captures the tranquility, fantasy and the adventure of its place of origin. The chair is executed with exorbitant attention to detail and was informed by its makers. It encapsulates the grace and vision of the resort’s founders when they rode in for miles on horseback and decided to chance on the beauty. The chair is my offering and I am bringing them into the US.
Here’s to inspiration and knowing there’s room for everyone to be seated at the creative table.
