This weekend I am going to a friend's wedding on the coast here. In her honor, I thought I'd share this incredible company talked about in my studio yesterday -- The Katrina Furniture Project. This group uses the endless sea of debris that covered New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina to make furniture such as the church pew above. Not only do they teach locals to make it, but their proceeds go to the disaster relief. I love the look of this pew, and even more I love the simple yet ingenius concept and practicality behind it.
