In those stormy seas we mentioned earlier, we've come across others we've found interesting and exciting to work with, collaborators, or allies you can call them. And we're meeting more all the time as the heavy workload in Seattle is finely tuning the talents of designers and creators and builders.
INNER SPACE DESIGNS - "We’re getting pretty good at this. The Seattle scene is a constant sea of change, so being able to ride the waves is key, finding stability by being flexible," said Andrea Bushdorf, creative director and chief responsible at Inner Space.
What has she done that catches our eye? We were impressed with her sliding painting and shelf installation. And the way she whips out a paint color book and goes to town with ideas is pretty sweet. It's one thing to put a chair in a corner an call it "design," but another to coordinate and make sense of flooring, artwork, fabrics, countertops and tile - and then manage the whole installation. Yes, she does all that. And more. Who wants to compete with that?  To visit Inner Space, click it.
DEAD SERIOUS MM - We don't actually quite know how to quantify what it is Dead Serious does, but it involves all the things we cannot do with cameras and computers and words and the know-how to put our best selves out there in the digital realm.

"I don't really seek out entities in the building industry," Creative Director Anthony Godoy tells us. "Like babies in baskets they just keep getting left on my doorstep and I've been feeding them and teaching them how to fend for themselves in the digital world."
Anthony told us this story once about how the chicken is kind of involved in the making of breakfast, but that the pig is pretty committed to it. He's either calling us pigs or chickens or committed, we weren't sure at the time. But it was a good story, and it made us conscious of what we do, versus what we are, and we're thankful for that.

Paul Denison - If someone could build a house from banjos, it would be Paul. Now hold that thought.
Originally from Texas, Paul made his way to Oberlin College in Ohio where he studied physics. Then somehow he took a deep interest in wood, and all things associated with it. Naturally, and as his interest in wood evolved and grew, he made his way to Vermont, where we understand Vermont's state tree is actually made form it. In Vermont Paul worked in the design industry, and then set his sights on the PNW. (We understand that when trying to leave Vermont, there was something of a skirmish at the boarder. Apparently one is not allowed to live in Vermont, learn its secrets about wood, and then simply leave.)
Today, Paul wields his craft out of the Is Good wood shop on the western edge of Georgtown, where he creates one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture and installations. He is also an avid and accomplished musician, and most enjoys the sounds and feels of the . . . banjo. It gets better: he also leads classes in the making of banjos, specifically instruments made of gourd rinds.
