Andrew took me through the showroom and provided lots of background information on each piece. It was great to gain some contextual knowledge behind the diverse line and to learn about the company's roots and their direction for the future. I am very impressed with their design prowess and also with their dedication to using sustainable materials. Allan, Andrew, and the rest of the Palecek design team are quite adept at using interesting found objects and resources that would otherwise be thrown away (like the inside of a mollusk shells). Anyhow, I think it's a notable resource and wanted to share some images of their goods. As usual, I have my favorites and they are as follows:
They have tons of fabulous chairs, including these Lyon Arm Chairs which show the wide range of finishes that are available.
I LOVE this light fixture...added bonus: it is available in all of the colors shown in the next photo!
This oversized wood sunburst mirror is really stunning.
They have lots designs that incorporate petrified wood, which is one of my favorite materials. Andrew told me that they source theirs out of Siberia...I'm sure harvesting it is a fun process!
This is a petite cane stool that swivels...I think it's such a smart design and the compact size is perfect for many small space situations. It was pretty comfortable too. I made a plea to Andrew about making it in different colors...seriously, how awesome would it be in turquoise?
There's my petrified wood console (as seen behind the sofa in our den)! Also some chic bamboo chairs and a killer inlaid bone tray.
This coffee table was so beautiful and this photo definitely doesn't do it justice. The top is made from Gemelina wood
This set of penshell nesting tables is to die for, isn't it?
This Auburn Lounge Chair is perfectly modern and exotic at the same time.
More pretty penshell accent tables...the rectangular lamp shown on the mini console is also very cool. As is the cane-backed chair on the left.
A great corded-cushion slipper chair topped with a very unique pillow. The white fabric on the pillow is made from remnants of bridal fabric.
Again, this chair is both modern and exotic...and slightly mid-century.
Fantastic oversized basket pendant...this would look awesome against white walls.
Palecek makes some amazing furniture, don't they? Any favorites of the pieces shown above?
