Philadelphia Furniture Show 2013

I am happy to report that I, not only survived, but thoroughly enjoyed my first furniture show. A beautiful affair all around; So many talented artists, creative minds, and stunning pieces all under one roof.

Held in the 23rd Street Armory in Philadelphia, it was amidst the hustle and bustle of Center City but, it wasn't just city folk that came out to the event. I was excited to meet and chat with people from New Jersey, Delaware, New York, and Pennsylvania.
I must say, I loved to spend the weekend surrounded by fellow furniture makers and admirers.

As you can see, Rob brought along quite an array! I am inclined to say that the wine and spirits cabinet was my favorite of the pieces he showed but, the decanter of whiskey inside may have shifted my bias. Oak accessory tables, a ghost maple/walnut coffee table, the infamous dining table with newly crafted chairs and bench; these are just a couple of the pieces that filled our booth and I was excited to sit amongst it all.
I was lucky to get the chance to meet and chat with so many talented individuals showing their work this weekend. There were 60 booths to admire and learn from. So much of the work I saw was so unique and stunning, I feel like it was a crash course in types of furniture in all realms of design.

A big thank you to Rob for inviting me to spend the weekend at the show. And, thank you to all the additional exhibitors for being so talented, inspirational, and incredibly friendly!
