I was on Etsy a few weeks ago and happened to go directly to the front page and not my shop page. I noticed this really super cool chair on Etsy's page by HarBenger Duo. It turns out they are a husband and wife team from my home town, Houston, Texas. I sent them a message and asked them if they would like to be featured on my blog and was really happy when they said yes. Thank you Audrey and Josh!
Tell us a little about yourselves:
We are a Houston based, husband/wife team designing and building modern furniture.
When did you first start crafting/designing furniture?
Josh began designing and fabricating products for a home accessories manufacturer in Baton Rouge, LA while attending the School of Interior Design at LSU. There he met Audrey in a furniture design class. Since then, pretty much inseparable.
