DESIGN WIRE – October 2013

A sculpture by Maine artist SUSAN PERRINE is now being sold through the clothing and home goods retailer Anthropologie. Twig Garden Structure is constructed from Maine hardwoods, which are woven together and fixed with screws. “My structures are built from the ground up using twigs and saplings as warp and weft,” Perrine explains. The sculpture featured in Anthropologie’s online catalogue stands eight feet tall and measures six feet in diameter. It can be used as a trellis or displayed as a striking piece of natural art.

MARGO MOORE INTERIORS has launched a new website, complete with an extensive gallery of portfolio images. The site, designed by The Brand Company, reflects the aesthetics of this family-run business. Brightly colored textiles and modern prints abound, though those looking for something a little more subtle will find inspiration here as well. To see the work of the design studio in person, you can still visit the Camden brick-and-mortar store, located at 74 Elm Street.

DOCKSMITH has been making iPod docking stations out of driftwood gathered from the sandy shores of Topsham since 2011 and their design just got a sonic update with a new line of resonators. Thanks to a hollow core at the center of the docking station, these pieces amplify music played from your iPod or iPhone. And since all Docksmith products are made from wave-washed and sand-smoothed pieces of Maine driftwood, they lend an earthy touch to any home.

Art Collector Maine artist JAN BLENCOWE’s painting Tall Trees has been accepted into the Catherine Lorrilard Wolfe 117th Annual Open Exhibition. The piece, available for purchase through Blencowe Studios, depicts a colorful scene of fall foliage. It is on display at the National Arts Club in New York City through October 25.
