SR Bookcase and More at High Desert Test Sites

The SR Bookcase travelled out to Joshua Tree this past weekend to be part of the Specific Apartment installation at the High Desert Test Sites Headquarters in Downtown Joshua Tree.  We were thrilled to be part of the show with so many talented designers and artists.  We've spent plenty of time in Joshua Tree National Park but not a lot of time in Downtown JT, so it was a real treat to check out all the nice little stores and restaurants including the Mt. Fuji General Store and Crossroads Cafe.

The weekend was full of events featuring the work of Portland based design trio Von Tundra.  Part of the weekend included brunch at A-Z West on tables and chairs designed and built by Von Tundra from wood pallets, along with a workshop to design/build a shade canopy from a collection of colorful vintage fabrics.  We love the work they are up to and the ethos by which they run their business.  Check out more of Von Tundra's work on their website, and in person starting this weekend at the Specific Merchandise storefront in Los Angeles, through November 6th.
