Here’s to never being able to color inside the lines.
Here’s to asking yourself “why not,”
Here’s to thinking a little outside of the box. (Literally)
Some designs are elegant in their simplicity. Some have just a small variation in detail that sets them dramatically apart from everything else. Adjusting the ‘particulars’ of something, making it new and different is the pleasure of design. There is a certain feeling we all get when we catch ourselves crossing lines that we imagine are boundaries. It’s like a small shot of adrenaline with a chaser of curiosity. This is the recipe for innovation, and everyone is capable of it.
We at Lyndon embrace these ideals, and staying true to form, we are proud to introduce the Brookline ‘stepped’ Bookcase storage unit. This unit is designed for decorative, home office, entertainment media, or literary storage.
Are you imagining what different uses this unit may have for you? If so, you are already starting to innovate.
You create your surroundings….
Surround yourself with elements that inspire you…
You never know what’s waiting to come ‘out of the box,’ until you open it …

As we approach the finish line for this year many of our products are in full sprint. Some pieces were conceived of late in the race and materials had not arrived till the last leg. This is the case for the ‘Sherwood’ table. The Sherwood line possesses a sense of organic appeal that is just not inclusive to all other lines.
There is almost an unseen force behind some designs, it’s like the piece was always there, just waiting to be assembled or brought to fruition. Especially when you are dealing with natural shapes, the pieces seem to have a sense of movement and take on a life of their own, even in the simplest of configurations. “There is no greater designer than Mother Nature.”
The Sherwood line is ‘Green’ in every sense. The lumber used is from reputable and sustainable sources. The base is made of vertical ‘slices/slabs’ of a whole trees, leaving virtually no waste. The top is similar to the base, only center boards have been added to acquire the width that is necessary for comfortable dining. The Sherwood line of furniture, (rest of line soon to come) pays tribute to the trees these pieces are made from.
Showcasing the natural beauty of wood is what we strive and love to do. We hope to continue designing, creating and paying tribute to all the elements involved and run this race with winged heels.
