Copper Tub by Diamond Spas

Some may call it artsy, some eclectic. Say what you will, the new article, Curves Ahead in Colorado Urban Home Magazine that hit stands this week, shows off the interiors of a "Dr Seuss like Denver Loft". The whimsical design was done by the owner of the home that took eco friendly design to a new level, "using 99% of materials and artisans sourced locally". Many of the findings and fixtures the owner used in the interior design was custom made, including the copper tub from Diamond Spas. The elliptical luxury bathtub was just one of the products that was made with recycled materials. Many of the wooden structures in the loft came from downed trees.

Unearthing the Beauty

Posted by Krista Payne on May 8, 2012 1:12:12 PM

The Architectural Design Home Show turned out to be a fabulous show for us in so many ways. Our team was able to meet so many talented designers, architects and artisans from around the world, we won best in show and we are seeing new sales from the show! That's what we call a successful trade show!

Although we were busy during the show we were happy to get the chance to check out some of our peers work. One of those we had the chance to visit was Green River Stone Company. What a cool company and concept. Their work is simply captivating. Their specialty is using fossils that are found in the lake beds of Wyoming and creating them into a work of art. Sounds like an easy task, but there is a lot of work that goes into unearthing these fossils. From small hand tools and picks that pick up the layers of stone, the laborious task has an end result of a highly defined fossil in which every bone is shown in high definition. These fossils are then added to a number of products they offer from counter tops, tables, murals and tiles.
