You know how your favorite music has a way of burying itself deep inside your brain and coming back at unexpected times? In my life, the same thing happens with furniture. I’ll see something, do a double take and then — if it really grabs me — I go back again and open drawers, run my hands across surfaces and maybe even take a picture. I did all of these things when I first saw the table that Grant McGavin of Heartwood had designed and was selling at the (amazing) Antler & Co. pop-up shop. Greg of Antler & Co. has impeccable taste, so it was no surprise that his pop-up shop was full of fantastic design, but that table embedded itself in my mind, and I haven’t been able to forget it since.
Last night, I emailed Greg and Matt (Matt’s beautiful bags were at the pop-up as well) to ask about the designer again, and I ended up spending most of the night re-living the ooh-and-ahh feeling I had when I saw Grant’s work in person this summer.
Grant is based in Portland where he uses local and environmentally friendly hardwoods. His primary wood of choice is a beautiful Oregon Black Walnut that he used to create a stunning series of seating and tables. I’ve got my eye on that three-legged coffee table, but the barstools and benches are really gorgeous as well. Click here to check out Grant’s full collection online. xo, grace
