Everyday Constructions

Don’t just see me for how I look, but for who I am. I have much to give, please don’t stare. I’ve always had to live this way. Nothing new, so here, let me help you with that. Says the man who spent his lifetime from a wheelchair.
Sometimes people tend to generalize value without realizing pre-existing worth. As in this collection recently shown at the Stockholm Furniture Fair by Sofie Samuelson and Hanna Billqvist called Everyday Constructions, we are inspired to check our view of things we once thought.
The journey began with a towering scaffolding set for a construction site the artist passed everyday. It’s levels and platforms, the metal poles against wooden plank bases got them thinking of the possible potential for a mobile book case. Complete with shiny metal braces, the shelves are soft toned wood, framed with round poles.
Other ordinary finds turned into something designed for new purpose include a neon clock based in marble, a privacy wall with a scalloped edge curtain, a rug stabilized by industrial corners, and a treasures box elevated onto legs.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she’s taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it’s a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
