People talk about this phenomenon all the time, or, at least I hear about it regularly, or, maybe it's just that I think about it all the time: When you have a seedling of an idea--no, a seed of an idea--too unsure or embarrassed or disbelieving to admit it aloud (even if "aloud" is just jotting it down in your journal), until you finally do, and then bam! It's set in motion.
A couple Saturdays ago we celebrated the Grand Opening of our flagship showroom outside of Austin in the small railroad town of Bertram, Texas. We've been working on the build-out & construction of the building since last May and the design and fabrication of all the furniture since about the summer of last year, all in spare time in between clients and projects. A labor of love, indeed, almost like its own passion project amidst a passion project. Being in the space is one of the most special feelings I've ever had. It feels good.
I hope you can come visit us if you find yourself in the Central Texas area. We'll have a cold beer waiting for you.
