Collaboration with Columbia City Bouquet
When we were approached by Emily Kopca, co owner of the awesome floral design shop Columbia City Bouquet, stationed in Seattle, we knew the collaboration was going to a be a bright and beautiful one.
Their new space is their second shop, South Lake Union Bouquet situated in the ground level of the Amazon headquarters in Seattle.
The goal: to outfit their new space with beautiful but minimal designs that will be good for staging, storage, and most importantly showcasing their floral arrangements and plants!
What was needed: custom shelving in the form of open faced credenzas, stackable shelves, mounted shelves, benches and tables. With their vision in mind, we were up to the task of bringing it to life. Check out some of the items they purchased here:
See some photos below of their space!
So! When you are up in Seattle, make sure to stop by Columbia City Bouquet's beautiful new shop, located on 7th Ave South Union Lake Bouquet and treat yourself or your loved one to something beautiful!

TGM Lounge for MadeHere PDX
MadeHere PDX, 40 NW 10th Ave, Portland
Last month we've teamed up with MadeHere PDX, a showroom presenting design focused, fashionable product entirely designed and manufactured in Portland, to create for them a lounge and play area highlighting our new TGM Studio Line.
With honest materials, straightforward lines, and playful attitude, the TGM Studio Line presents high quality functionality that is fit to match its calling. Our Ping Pong Conference Tables are made of solid hardwood construction on legs that are designed and fabricated in house. Our Plywood Lounges have been developed as flat-packable and versatile pieces, for variable office work (and lounge) scenarios. Solid russian birch construction matched with high-quality upholstery and ergonomic design give these pieces longevity in high-traffic spaces while maintaining their simple elegance.
Stop by MadeHere, play some ping pong on our TGM Ping Pong Conference table in eastern black walnut with copper plated legs and copper inlay, lounge on our upholstered TGM Plywood Lounge Chairs or stretch out on our TGM Plywood Love Seat, and take a moment to contemplate the brains and hands involved in all the things that are MadeHere in this great city.
The Good Mod team members Tom and Mike dialing-in the Ping Pong setup. Ready for play at NW 10th and Couch.
Spencer Scott Staley, The Good Mod's creator getting involved in the MadeHere Ping Pong Lounge.
Visit our showroom at 1313 W Burnside St., 4th floor, to view the complete selection of style options for your own TGM custom pieces.

SCULPTURAL ILLUSIONS AT TGM
Artists Spencer Scott Staley and Zach Dougherty are mixing up science and art with visual objects and interventions. Using a 3-D scanning technique developed by Zach and intuitive experimentation by Spencer this styrofoam sculpture will trick your eyes!
The Good Mod is a place of productivity and exploration in the techniques and tools of digital fabrication.
CNC milled subtractive sculptural methods.
The nuances of form are accentuated by shadow. This play of light created by the recess in the styrofoam gives the illusion of the Bust protruding out.
Please contact us to visit the studio and talk with our Artists!

We had a group of artists + designers from Nike inhabit our space this week. Their group included renowned artist Bunky Echo Hawk, who seemed to bring an awesome perspective to the group's work. It was great to see their collaborative effort and we hope that our space helped to drive and inspire them.
Here is a few photos from their visit.
