Happy New Year! It’s that time of the year again… the time to take up new and exciting hobbies, start impossible exercise routines, and to reflect fondly upon the past year. I don’t know about you, but I’ve always enjoyed a nice bit of sentimental reflection…
It’s been a busy year for us here at dust. Let me explain… last year at this time we were selling in six galleries within a two hour radius of our shop. We’re now closing in on 40, with locations across the United States. We’ve built a lot of furniture, packed a lot of boxes, attended our first wholesale show, had some exciting moments and some disappointing moments, and we could probably write an 800-page book (with illustrations!) about all that we’ve learned in the past year.
All of that said, I can’t easily remember this past year without becoming excited about this new year and all that it will bring our way. Vincent is currently working on four new brilliant furniture designs which we’ll be bringing with us to the Rosen Show in February, as well as a brand new and much improved booth design. We’ll be looking to relocate and expand our shop space within the next year, and possibly getting some more helping hands in the shop. We’ll celebrate dust’s second anniversary as a company in May. Doubtless we’ll learn plenty more about owning a company, and sometimes we’ll be happy about that, and sometimes we’ll have to be gently reminded that we should be happy about that… And who knows what else 2007 holds for us, but it’s full of possibility and promise. And good furniture.
