2018 Southern Living Idea House | Austin, Texas

The cat is finally out of the bag! We can finally talk about our long awaited reveal. Southern Living Idea House 2018 has hit the stands. It was a pleasure working with Meredith Ellis Design & David Wilkes Builders again on this fabulous transformation. The 2018 Southern Living Idea House in Austin is by far the best we have seen from Southern Living. This year the Austin Idea House featured our Range Hood # 7-46 in stainless steel with a Non-Directional Burnished Stainless steel finish. Body details include “Steamer Trunk” strapping with “Arrow Head” ends and decorative rivets paired with our boarder #22 (details feature stainless steel strapping and decorative rivets).

In The Press… Garden and Gun Magazine

Its always a treat when we find out our hand crafted products hit a major publication. Last summer our custom light fixtures (Wall Sconce model: DJWS) were featured in a Gun & Garden Magazine article about a little known watering hole in our own backyard of Central Texas. These hand crafted (in our local Austin Studio) wall sconces are formed from sheets of Mica and strips of copper to form a conical light fixture.
