busy.

haven't had much time to post this week, as maison21 has been busy doing some freelance work for his incredibly talented former employer. though our formal working relationship ceased years ago, we still do good work together, so he'll occasionally commission m21 to do some sketches of custom furnishings. the drawings help our former boss to visualize his concepts for the pieces, and between the two pairs of our eyes, we can tweak things so they turn out kinda pretty! bonus- the client gets a nice visual of what their custom 17 foot sofa will look like when built, rather than merely describing it as an updated mid-century classic biomorphic sofa on a cerused oak "floating" base.

we can't share what we are currently working on with you, as the concepts haven't even been presented to the client yet; plus this is 100% our former employer's project, not our own, so it's is his baby to publicize or not, as he sees fit. nor do we wish to besmirch his good name by linking it with our own questionable nom du decor- associated with someone who actually bought a pillow from the home shopping network? quelle horreur! ;-)

however, we can show you images of the last project maison21 helped out on for this same client, as it has already been published- 4 different times! in W, interior design magazine, angeleno magazine and the LA times. we'd love to think think it was because of the stunning interiors we helped to shape, but in reality, it probably had more to do with the client's AMAZING art collection- warhol, hirst, judd, chamberlain, bourgeois, gober, rauschenberg, twombly- the list goes on and on... such a privilege to work on such a glamorous project!
