I came across DeWayne Lumpkin’s furniture pieces during a recent visit to the Alameda Flea Market. (Takes place during the first Sunday of the month.) I was eyeing some stools for a client project and was delighted by his many offerings in a line of furniture that had a distinctly bespoke quality. He’s created a whole line that integrates vintage British transit route sign graphics in bold letterforms, in the context of traditional upholstered pieces—something old, and something new.
I kinda like the idea of having furniture that doesn’t take itself too seriously…plus, I love the integration of typography within the context of furniture. To see more of DeWayne’s pieces (click here).
