My design partner, friend, and former (*sniff sniff) roommate Rebecca Herbert is working under the name DUSTspell. The name is meant to recall a kind of mysterious unknown: a magic spell born out of a hazy day, an energetic imprint left within oneself after working within an undefined space. The endless possibility you feel right before you go on a big adventure. For me the name evokes the feeling I get from walking outside at night during the fall.

Today Becca sent me a picture of this floating desk she made and installed in her new home in New Orleans. Isn’t it incredible? I feel so lucky to know a lady with the creative reserve and the talent it takes to design and execute something as unique and well made as this piece of furniture. She’ll be putting her wood-workings on our Etsy shop some time this fall!

We’re also collaborating on some items in addition to the work we’re designing independently. There will be wooden apparel tags and stationery boxes, and a few wearables will be DUSTspell designs.
