THE VIDEO PITCH
We work out of our Barn-Style Shop. It looks peaceful and relaxing on the outside but sometimes it get's pretty busy inside fulfilling orders and they come in. This is where we complete the finishing touches of all the Scratch'n Slumber Comfort Loungers and prepare them for shipment to some very lucky cats.
Up the road is where we mill, kiln dry, plane and handcraft the different components of the Scratch'n Slumbers.
Raymond Loewy - Credited with originating a design technique called streamlining, Loewy spent over 50 years streamlining everything from postage stamps to spacecrafts. Of his many famous creations - the Studebaker Avanti was renowned for it's toughness, strength and durability with the lines of their bodies displaying an air-curve symmetry. Not unlike "The Ultimate Cat Scratcher Lounge" or commonly known as the Scratch'n Slumber® Comfort Lounge.
The Studebaker Avanti and the S1 Locomotive each designed by Raymond Loewy. They are my favorite because the designs show a sleek, smooth, and streamline creativeness with a solid toughness, strength and durability to there appearance.
