Monmade Exhibition: Interiors with Impact

This past weekend I managed to push myself to go out and do something. Since it was freezing outside, I was into the idea of spending time at home all day. I decided to put something on besides sweat pants and check out a couple book stores and the Monmade exhibit over at the Pittsburgh Glass Center. I heard about this through Instagram posts from some of the folks involved but I have not had the chance to see it until now.

This exhibit showcases 20 different makers, artists and producers. Each of them created interior products from raw or reclaimed materials.

Mural by Worker Bird

The set up is small but impressive. There’s a lot of items to browse and imagine what they might look like in your home. I have to say, my favorite part was probably the mural by Worker Bird who usually focuses on tin collages. Lately she has been creating hand drawn items on different types of goods such as tea towels and shirts.

Everything was well thought out and designed beautifully. I love that everything was made by hand and different types of materials, textures, and colors.

I want this bed!
