Etsy Store: East Austin Flip Top Birch Coffee Table

28 08 2008

We just bought our first place and the first thing that we learned was that Ikea and West Elm will always and forever own us. We are addicted to everything Apartment Therapy related and all of our money goes into buying furniture, painting, and magazine subscriptions. We are also big fans of Etsy. If you don’t know what it is, it’s an online shop where artist and designers can put up their work and art for sale to the general public. We actually found a really amazing table by Gezellig Print for sale on Etsy the other day. The best part about is that it features art inspired by East Austin. It comes in two color schemes and it goes for only $375. We asked the designer, Jennifer James Wright, why she choose East Austin as the inspiration for this table and she was nice enough to respond.

Jennifer James Wright – “I just find East Austin visually stimulating and inspiring. It all began with that little yard full of old campers (blanking on where it is right now). I stumbled across it and loved the visual, the collection. I spurred a little camper series and from there I built off of that inspiration using other beautiful things in East Austin. My physical surroundings have a big influence on my life, naturally, and I suppose that influence manifested in this form”

Inspired by Austin, Texas’s endearing East neighborhoods and the unique organic structure of succulents that are rather common in the region.

Table top is printed on both sides and will easily lift and flip. Table and screen-printing is all hand-crafted and hand-printed.
