DIY furniture book by Christopher Stuart

by Kate Pruitt

I am excited to share the new DIY book, , for three reasons. For starters, this book was authored by one of our D*S scholarship winners: the extremely talented Christopher Stuart, founder of . Second, this book features projects from some of my favorite emerging designers, including , and . And last, it’s a DIY book dedicated to furniture, which I’ve been dying to see on the market for some time. Needless to say, I’m thrilled.

The projects in the book share a rough, sculptural style that I find extremely appealing; you could easily outfit an arty loft with all the projects, or just choose one or two per room to inject a jolt of industrial chic into your current furnishings. The projects are medium and large in scale, but do not seem overly complicated or intimidating. If you need a gift for the DIY or design-loving people on your list, I highly recommend checking out this book. If it were me, I’d wrap the gift in bubble wrap and finish it off with some sort of bow made from neon zip-ties . . . but I’m crazy like that :) — 

to purchase a copy (metric version available ) and to find out more about the book.
