Several exhibitors at this past summer’s Guerrilla Truck Show and the nearby reception for the Object Society (a group of independent Chicago-based furniture and object designers) showed off furniture injected with shots of color. Angela Finney-Hoffman of Post 27 presented a George Nelson–inspired credenza from her new Lapel collection, a collaboration with Stone Blitzer, with door panels in vivid hues. Seth Deysach of Lagomorph Design debuted a walnut and leather rocking chair with a thin aluminum plate, powder-coated orange, supporting the seat. Jon Martin of Mode Carpentry and Andrew Kephart of Ism Furniture showed chairs made of wood, powder-coated steel, and lacquer finishes in lively colors, “adding a fun element that makes the design more interesting,” says Kephart. We couldn’t agree more.
