What’s Your Style?

From Janelle:

While shopping for 3 ½” Schedule 40 TP 304/304L stainless steel pipe, the question continually posed was, “What are you going to do with this?”  Fabricate a one of a kind circle patterned staircase of course!  Isn’t that what every woman does for fun?

The ultimate goal of design is for the “Wow Factor”, that moment when your breath quickens and your heart stops, that “I can’t believe how amazing that is” effect.  That happens to me when I read design magazines and I yearn for that feeling when I walk into my house.

I am inexplicitly drawn to 60’s mod hip, not necessarily Palm Springs Rat Packer slick but a nod to the mod with a psychedelic Andy Warhol/Peter Max twist, a Mid-Century modern slant, hard core modern simplicity and some Hollywood Glam thrown in for good measure.  What’s my style?  Rad with bling baby.  What else?

From Lewis:

Of course a nice simple stainless steel cable stair rail would look great but noooo not for Janelle, a self-confessed junky for design shows.  She is putting steel fabricator Tom and crew to task.  And of course the budget. I’m sure it will look great.

What’s your style?

This makes my heart stop.  In a good way.

    It’s that mix of refinement & street metal tough.
    Oh yeah, it’ll definitely be an, “oh wow!”

  5. Refinement is the hard party; edgy is easy!
