There is tons of information on the internet you can find on them. However, this 11 minute video of them gives you a good overview on their work, their quirkiness and a bit on our social standards at the time. So, warm up your coffee and enjoy this little video clip. If you want a bit more following, as always, there is this Eames pinterest board. Cheers!

K2 Studios: Locally Made Tables

While enjoying a beautiful fall day in downtown Asheville I stopped in at K2 Studios for some retail exploration. The home furnishings retailer offers a creative and eclectic mix that makes for fun wandering. My question to Kim Hubbard, the Creative Director, was, “Do you have anything locally made?” I did discover that they offer these custom concrete and steel tables that can be made into everything from small accessory tables, desks and kitchen islands. Often, they will work with local architects to design integrated furnishings.

The custom tables are hand-made by local craftsman Billy Sproul. To find out more about Billy and his relationship with K2 Studios click here.
