Canvas: New Line from Ochre

Canvas: New Line from Ochre

Yesterday, I got a tour of the new line Canvas from Ochre owner Andrew Corrie. As a board member of Aid to Artisans, Andrew's interest in sustainable, quality furnishings and handcraft has formed a foundation to the line that supplements Ochre's high-end pieces with a collection aimed at the style-minded on a smaller budget. My favorite piece was a table made from cedar salvaged from dismantled NYC water towers! • The water tower table and bench decked out with the Canvas line — I really liked the Nepalese felt cushions on the end of the bench - $150 each, and available in an assortment of colors. • Soapstone tableware from Haiti and polished plaster lamps from Morocco. • A close up of the water tower cedar. • Ash trays made in upstate New York and inspired by Shaker construction techniques - $550. • Linen picture frames — beautifully simple & elegant - $44 - $58 each. • Bath towels and bath mats. • Close up of towels — great knubbly texture! • Woven telephone wire baskets from Africa — nice to see in a monochromatic and neutral color palette! - $40 - $99 • Recycled glass glasses and earthenware for the table. • Wooden trestle table.
