Conrad Grebel is about Design

Tidbit:  Conrad Grebel is about design. It’s hard to believe that we’re already thinking about April’s International Home Furnishings Show. We’re working on designs and prototypes of new pieces to take with us to the show. When we design furniture we’re simple in that we start with a concept drawing and then design the pieces as we build them. It’s always better for us to see the pieces come together proportionally and ascetically in real time as opposed to drawings only. We’re considering working with natural Curly/Tiger Maple and Black Walnut. What do you think?

Fun Amish Fact:  Yesterday was Larry’s birthday. At 11am I’ll leave the office to go pick up pizza to take to the shop for him and his four employees to have over their lunch break…His son, Luke, asked me to go pick it up for them. I might even grab some cupcakes for the occasion too. Cupcakes + pizza = perfection! The beautiful thing about small family shops are the sense of real community that each shop enjoys. Simple things like pizza and cupcakes and time together enjoying each other’s company are the Amish way of life.
