We decided to build matching dining and coffee tables. So we modified A Beautiful Mess’ plan and build to suit our needs. A friend delivered a bunch of century-old 5.5-inch tongue-and-groove fir subflooring from Lincoln’s old Bike Kitchen. We used that as the table tops, and some harder oak as rails for contrast and durability. Also, we used hairpinleg.com’s badass (and affordable) legs on both.
The past couple weeks we’ve been working on a simple logo for and a detailed drawing of a cool new space: The Pella at Blackstone. The guys over at Iwen Exposures are rehabbing the 100+ year-old Pella Lutheran Church (whose roof was torn off by the 1913 Easter Day Tornado hours after hosting its first service). The chapel will be a rental hall and the basement is going to house some pretty awesome sounding creative spaces. As for the logo, we kept it simple (you can’t go wrong with Emigre’s Brothers), but to add a subtle unique detail, we used one of the trefoils featured prominently on the exterior of the building in the negative space of the “A.”
The asked us to make a digital drawing of the building in addition to logo. This is always one of our favorite things to do.
