Eye Candy: Booth 121 Furniture

Okay, so first of all, there’s Dudley.

I mean, really. Look at that mug.

He’s the mascot for Cottage Grove, Wisconsin-based artist Leah Raisbeck‘s Booth 121.

And her work just makes me happy.

I don’t know Leah personally, and since she lives about eighteen hours’ drive away, I guess we’re not super likely to start hanging out any time soon. But I’m pretty sure we’d be BFFs and braid each other’s hair on a bi-weekly basis if we lived closer.

Ahem, but I digress.

My fantastic mother-in-law Janet introduced me to her work, and I’m a fan.

Of course, we know my affinity for curvy-faced, chunky-legged, white-painted pieces like these.

But, if you are feeling a little more adventurous, Leah has a fantastic knack for making a piece feel at once fresh and young while also worn and old.

Her take on stripes had me at hello.

I mean, seriously, can I be a kid again just to have this in my nursery?

And don’t think this doesn’t get my wheels turning on a girly-colored version for Sis’s table and chair set.

And then there’s her color blocking choices. Subtle. Brilliant.

They’re kinda genius, I think.

I love to peruse her projects for inspiration. Talk about breathing new life into something.

Here’s what happens when you give her a bag of Sprees, oyster crackers, and a Diet Coke.

And ombre? I mean, come on.

Those shutters. That dresser.

You better just hush.
