We received this photograph confirming that our Chesterfield sofa made it safely to Seattle and we couldn’t be more happy with it’s new home and owner, our dear friend.
We’re in Philadelphia so we were able to come view this beautiful photograph in person at Menagerie Coffee taken by our lovely friend Corey on their Nordic explorations for TAKK with @takktravels. They’re in the process of publishing a book that will include images and field notes from their journey as well as opening a Nordic inspired café in our former neighborhood in Seattle. Check out the first part of their interview with @commontableco published yesterday at commontable.co/journal. We’re really excited for these sweet friends! (at Menagerie Coffee)
A society that allows thousands of homeless people to roam the streets with no protection for their bodies; that spends, on the average, more for the last week of a dying elderly person’s hospital care than for the medical needs of the first ten years of a child’s life; that refuses in international congresses to join other nations in protecting biodiversity and limiting chemicals that contribute to global warming: this society hates the body, human bodies, and all other animal and plant bodies that make up the body of our planet.

These friends… We hardly have words for how grateful we were to have a little bit of Seattle with us last night in New York. (at Manhattan, New York)
We thought our last goodbye before we move to Tanzania was Seattle, last October. But then we all made it to New York at the same time and spent less than 24 hours together in the same city and it was so so good. (at Manhattan, New York)
