grace and i were both instantly smitten when the sneak peek from jordan provost (photographer and letterpress printer) and jason wong (graphic designer) of enormous champion arrived in our inbox. enormous champion was officially started last may as an avenue for creative collaboration between the couple. their crown heights, brooklyn home is clearly an extension of this wonderful collaboration. stay tuned for some new wooden pieces, tea towels and gift wrap in their collection, but for now enjoy their gorgeous sneak peek. and don’t forget to CLICK HERE for the full peek and additional images. [thanks jason and jordan!] anne

[above: Our dining room. The dining room set was given to us by Jason’s parents. Coincidentally, the same year (1972) that Jason’s parent’s bought their dining room set in California, my parents bought the exact same one in New Jersey. We had the chairs recovered in Maharam Paul Smith fabric. Print on the back wall is by Margaret Kilgallen. Painting on the left wall is by Seonna Hong.]

We got the sideboard on ebay. Photograph is by one of my favorite photographers, Seydou Keita.

Gink-go’s favorite spot in winter, as close to the radiator as she can get. Over the summer, we painted all of our radiators a shiny off white enamel- a vast improvement over the 100 year old dull iron that was exposed before. Above Gink-go is a silk screen print that we did based on one of our card designs.

Our apartment is not big, when coming from a house perspective, but I guess it isn’t tiny for a NYC apartment either. Prior to this, we lived in a studio in another part of Brooklyn- so we are chuffed to actually have halls and more than 4 walls! The coffee table is from a great shop in Dallas which we found driving across country 2 years ago. We fell in love with it- the longest table I’ve come across- 99 inches! The saw on the wall was painted by a friend- Neil O’Brien and inspired one of our card designs. The two chairs were both found on the street. We had the grey one recovered in Eames fabric, which, if you ever find yourself in Zeeland, Michigan, there is an amazing factory outlet, housed in the original Herman Miller offices and factory. They have many of the patterns for $15 yard! The Lego castle on the bookshelves from 1978 is a love of Jason’s and was given to him by my sister which was hers when she was young.

Cabinets and counter tops are from Ikea. In the bottom left of the photo is a coal safe- one of the pre-war details that we love. (We now use it for gardening supplies.). The insulated coffee pot was found in a flea market in Germany.

This small section of countertop is pretty much useless for cooking anything other than toast, so it has become a place for plants, bowls of fruit, and music.enormchampeek7
Close up view of living room- Factory Records cassette boxes for New Order & Joy Division. We adore the label and the packaging. Eames mini elephant.

Our version of the hallway console table (but with more storage). Our keys and mail get dropped here. I used to have this dresser (and the one in our bedroom) in my bedroom as a child. Thank goodness for the 70’s love of Danish Modern. The painting is by Amy Rathbone.

These built-in babies were just what the doctor ordered to two folks who love to collect things.

Our twirly cat, Pia, loves the mellow light in the bedroom. We painted it with an ‘under the ocean’ shade of blue. Photographs on left wall are mine from a trip to Ecuador. Print above bed is a German biology teaching print.

Our office pretty much just comprises of our desk (and shared computer). It is located in the corner of our dining room. designs and inspiration taped to the wall using removable tape- (they change frequently).

Lego: Jason’s guilty pleasure. Vintage cameras: mine. 2 silk screened prints by the late Charley Harper. Morning sunlight comes in brightly here… Buddhas and figures collected while traveling.  Portable typewriter, for travelers of yore.
