Turns out due to my Japanese Trash shop that I’ve been selected as a featured Great.ly tastemaker – and turns out I’m happy about that. So to celebrate, I’ve added three nifty new items to the store and wanted to be sure you know all about them. Drum roll please… here they are:

The O-Type Chair:

I've added this handsome chair to my shop in celebration of being selected as a featured tastemaker. | japanesetrash.com

This handsome fella has seen action even before becoming your best chair. His seat and back are made from retired, double-jacketed fire hose. Pair that with the sleek lines of his steel and aluminum frame and you’ve got yourself a life-long companion. Order HERE.


Wood Table Lamp:

I've added this awesome lamp my shop in celebration of being selected as a featured tastemaker. | japanesetrash.com

This sturdy lamp is made from an off cut of Western Red Cedar previously destined for the landfill. The wood is carefully milled, shaped, sanded, and then finally finished with a natural protective oil. Each is wired with a custom fabric covered cord — choose between sky blue or cool grey — that has an on/off switch built in. Order HERE.


Abstract Print:

I've added this amazing abstract art print my shop in celebration of being selected as a featured tastemaker. | japanesetrash.com

This archival print of an original painting by Illinois-based artist Jaime Derringer will make a bold statement in your space. It’s printed on 8.5″ x 11″ high-quality fine art paper with archival inks, so you know it’ll last a life time. Order HERE.

Oh, and just in case the good people at Great.ly have moved on to feature other tastemakers by the time you go browse the Japanese Trash shop, here’s a grab I did of their spotlight:

The bedroom space from my post on Thomas O’Brien has been a favorite of mine for many years; it shows the power of a well-edited collection and an artistic aesthetic. It also spotlights his famous use of the star chart, which he has written about on the Aero website. That piece has been a touchstone of sorts for him through the years and is the kind of item that brings a feeling of personality and life to a room. I thought I’d showcase a few of his images featuring the chart and perhaps inspire you to identify and display your own personal totem in your home.
