February Featured Product: Knox Dawn

If you subscribe to our newsletter, you likely saw that we're trying out something new this year. We want to make our pieces available to everyone, so we're going to be featuring one discounted piece every month. We'll share exclusive details about the inspiration behind these products, and all month long, you'll get 15% off of that particular piece. 

Our first featured piece is the Knox in Dawn. This is one of our favorites because it really shows our growth, both in its design and in its concept. Knox was an older design that we decided to produce in two new colorways for fall. We weren't quite ready to give up this pattern when it came time to release new pieces; with its avant garde details and its reclaimed lath, it's kind of the perfect blend of all of our favorite, tried-and-true styles.

Rather than scrapping our beloved Knox simply to say that we made something new, we decided to re-release it in two conceptual colorways. Dusk featured charred wood to represent the hazy dark of dusk, while Dawn features whitewashed wood and natural lath to represent the light of dawn. 

If you're interested in buying Knox Dawn for 15% off, just use the code "FEBDEAL" at checkout. Be sure to check this space or sign up for our newsletter to take advantage of all of our monthly deals!

 

 

Our Favorite Things: October 2016

The 90-degree fall days are finally slipping away here in Nashville, and we're feeling pretty inspired by these cooler temperatures and early nightfall. October was a great month for us: we launched our new website, unveiled our Fall / Winter 2016 line, and still managed to make time for some downtime here and there. Here are our favorite things that we came across this October. 

1767fw16
  • Our FW16 line, "Dusk and Dawn". Is it vain to say that our own line was one of our favorite things this month? No? Maybe...? We've been keeping this new collection under wraps for so long, we almost don't care! It always feels great to start new work, and this FW16 line is absolutely our favorite to date. 
  • This incredible dog video. We're suckers for a cute dog video over here, and this one was by far our favorite that we saw this month. 
  • The Japanese tradition of kintsugi. Have you heard of kintsugi? It's the Japanese tradition of repairing broken things (like ceramics, glassware, or even wooden floors) in a way that makes the repair even more beautiful than the original. It's also the title of a pretty great Death Cab for Cutie album, but that's just the icing on the cake. 
  • Urban Cowboy Public House. If you're in Nashville, be sure to have a cocktail at the brand new bar at the East Nashville Urban Cowboy B&B. While you're there, check out our contributions in the form of Art Deco-inspired wood art on the tables and along the face of the bar itself. 
  • Holiday Markets. This month, we're gearing up for what is always our busiest time of the year. Aside from our local favorite Porter Flea, we're heading out to a number of other craft shows and makers' markets outside of Nashville. 

The Fireflower Fire Pit

We love innovative, thoughtfully designed products here at 1767, so when our friends at Aesh Design recently told us about their new Fireflower Fire Pit, we couldn't wait to help them spread the word. This portable stainless steel fire pit packs totally flat so that you can take it with you anywhere, and once you unfold it, it quickly assembles into a sleek flower shape so that you can create a sturdy but lightweight fire pit anywhere you go. 

The Fireflower has three individual panels with a series of slots that fit together to form the fire pit, but once you're done, they're easy to pack flat and strap together to carry away. Even the grill portion of the Fireflower uses the same size module, so the whole thing fits together seamlessly. 

We're looking forward to doing some camping around Nashville now that the weather is getting cooler, and we can't wait to try one of these guys out. If you want to buy a Fireflower of your own, you can contribute to their Kickstarter. Pledging any amount helps this project get off the ground, but pledging $225 or more gets you a Fireflower of your own.
