Drift Studio: Furniture With Flex Appeal

 chest-nyc-map2-w
   
The furniture designers at the artist collaborative, Drift Studio, in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin take their trend direction seriously. 

I mean it, like, go North on La Cienega, take a left on Sunset and go up three blocks.

 Who knew furniture could tell you where to go?

Created from Baltic Birch plywood, the panels that provide the foundation for the studio's collection of tables, chests, wall-mounted cubes and modular utility carts ($249 - $1199) feature designs imprinted with ink that permeates the wood and a clear top coat finish.

 What makes these pieces special is the ability to customize the cabinetry by choosing from an array of panel art (like maps or trikes), or requesting something more personalized. The possibilities are endless, and unique.

Although some pieces ship (almost completely) assembled, much of the modular furniture is packed flat for easy shipping and assembly.

Think Ikea to the highest power, cubed.

I know, you thought there wouldn't be math...

  2. Good post. I really like the quick writing style. I’ve always had trouble with design myself.
    Recently I got a few rooms in my apartment furnished by a startup, Furnishr. Furnishr let me
    pick my room design, all the furniture, and decor items for one price. They delivered everything
    in less than a week. Here’s link to them if you’re interested contemporary furniture stores
