Canary Yellow, Great Looks, Palatable Price
In July when artist Hayley Gaberlavage shared glimpses of her studio with us, a lot of people were struck by how great that long canary-yellow bench looked in her light-filled New Orleans space. Turns out she found the vintage leather piece in Atlanta at Funky Junk.
Hayley says most all of her mid-century furniture has come from Funky Junk (she enthusiastically recommends the shop for interesting finds at very fair prices) and the bench is her absolute favorite.
Shifting our eyes from furniture to iconic art, Monet Water Lilies remains on view at the High just through August 23. So, if you've not seen any of the series before, there are a little less than two weeks left to take curator David Brenneman's advice and try to experience -- if only for a brief moment -- a "floating world." Check this page for details on Thursday ticket discounts.
