Design Daily: Bainbridge Island’s GrainAuthor:Sarah Virginia White
We might be a California publication, but we still have to throw some love to our fellow designers on the West Coast. One of my favorites is Grain, a design outfit based on Washington’s Bainbridge Island.
Grain debuted new furniture and textile collections at this year’s ICFF, showcasing the small-batch, sustainable philosophy behind their designs (one percent of its annual revenue goes back into environmental non-profits). There were side and coffee versions of the Dish table—a scooped-out design inspired by African stools— as well as tribal, minimal fabrics translated into hand towels and pillows.
Grain has worked with companies like DWR, Anthropologie and Trina Turk in addition to custom studio products, but this is its largest launch so far. Check out their site for more info on their artisan approach, but for a big dose of inspiration, visit Bainbridge Island itself. It’s just a 45-minute ferry ride from Seattle and packed with great boutiques, restaurants and parkland.
