I know what you’re thinking. FINALLY, she’s writing about Design Star contestant Nathan Galui‘s upcoming furniture line and not just bragging about how she and Nate are “like this” or teasing you about showing you. Occasionally, I do put my money where my mouth is. Or if not my money (because nothing’s priced or available yet), then my “pen,” as it were.
So I’ll do a little show and tell, because gawd knows you are just going to scroll past my powerful prose to see the pics anyway. I’ll just sit here and wait while you do that.
Okay, I was just blown away when I got the pics. I know these are some simple pieces, but I love simple pieces and the world’s not quite maxxed out yet on simple furniture. I was impressed when I saw Nathan’s work because this is the kind of thing I expected to see him do on Design Star, based on the incredible style we saw in his audition video. His furniture is really unique without bashing you over the head with novelty. And if this is his first go at manufacturing his own line, I would say Nate has a very fun and exciting career ahead. Who needs Design Star when you have talent like this?
You’ll be able to purchase these babies directly from Nate via his upcoming Mesh Studio in West Palm Beach (expected to open late November/early December), and also online, as soon as his website is live (prospective launch is late October). There isn’t any pricing info yet but I’ll definitely share when it’s available.
Design Star junkies, check back Monday for my recap of Sunday night’s episode of Design Star, as well as my interview with that night’s eliminated designer!
