While 1767 started as a one-man operation in its earliest days, it’s long been a team effort (ever since… well, ever since we were able to hire a team). Tim, a longtime artisan on our design-and-build team, came up with a few really great designs for some one-of-a-kind pieces that we created over the summer, and we loved them so much that we told him to run with them. The result is the Cumulus Collection, a cohesive line of wooden wall art that blends our signature angles and lines with rounded, flowing shapes like we’ve never experimented with before.
For his first collection, Tim said that he was inspired by nature, first and foremost. When drawing inspiration, he would admire the sky on his drive to the 1767 studio each morning, think of the plants and trees he encountered on walks in the forest, and even call to mind the patterns he saw on insects, many of which looked like subliminal faces.
“This line is my interpretation of the sky as the giant hero, the giver of nature; and nature can’t help but thank it by mimicking similar patterns to show respect,” Tim said.
While the Cumulus Collection won’t be released until late fall, we wanted to give you all a sneak peek here. We couldn’t be prouder or more excited to release this line, especially since it’s been such a labor of love for one of our team members.
