We noticed that white ash is making quite a splash this fall in the new designer¬†collection lineups.
The white ash tree, also known as the American Ash, grows widely from south eastern Canada,¬†throughout the eastern United States all the way down to Florida. You’ve probably seen it growing in parks in Ontario or Quebec and didn’t realize¬†that not only is this tree thriving, but its¬†strength properties make it an ideal choice for everyday items¬†such as¬†baseball bats, flooring, tool handles and furniture.

Today’s feature furniture¬†pieces are good ol’ classics that never looked softer: we’re coveting the Eames lounge chair and ottoman in white ash, as well as the timeless Noguchi table:

It’s December, and that, according to my friend Patrick, means that I am allowed to start decorating.
