Pink Beans!

October 18, 2010

We were not expecting our garden beans to be such an amazing colour! The barlotti beans you get from a tin are usually brown but these are spectacularly spotty and pink!

 

The office has been a mass of foam board and bits of branches as the guys are building lots of models for various projects. It has gotten so full of stuff that I have moved my workspace into the main house for a bit of calm! And I am reallying enjoying it! Donal and Janek have 3 students working with them since they got shortlisted for a competition which I am not supposed to mention so keep in touch and I will fill you in later.

The non-conformist

July 22, 2009

Our “non-conformist chair” by Eileen Gray sits comfortably against the iroko timber. Its my best friends choice of chair in our house especially when she was pregnant!  Eileen Gray said “An armrest was omitted in order to leave the body more freedom in movement and to allow it to bend forward or to turn to the other side unrestricted.”
Frame of chromium-plated steel tubing. Seat of beech frame with rubber webbing. Upholstery: polyurethane with polyester filling. Cover in leather.

Kathleen Eileen Moray Gray(August 9,1878 – October 21,1976) was an Irish furniture designer and architect and a pioneer of the Modern Movement in architecture. She was born in Enniscorthy, Co.Wexford.
