SSS x Cedar & Moss

sarah sherman samuel x cedar and moss pendant // trullbrook residence bathroomHappy Monday guys! My excitement this morning is two-fold because #1 I get to introduce you to another SSS product collaboration and #2 share a sneak peak into the almost finished master bathroom from my “Trullbrook Residence” client. You may remember the before photos and the design plan from this post, and it is all coming together. The custom vanity I designed, the basket weave tile pattern, the gorgeous slab… and probably my most loved items in the room are the pendants I designed along with my favorite lighting company Cedar & Moss.

Cedar and Moss had just come out with their ceramic line and we knew it was a match made in heaven. I worked closely with Michelle, the founder, by passing sketches and going through a first and second prototype before we landed on the final piece that I got to use in my Trullbrook Residence project and that you can purchase through my shop and over on Cedar & Moss now!

If you are familiar with any of my work you will have no doubt seen some Cedar & Moss fixtures. When Michelle first launched her line, I used her Alto Pendants in our kitchen renovation and have become a loyal Cedar & Moss fan from then on. What started as a one woman show has grown in leaps and bounds into a bustling studio, providing the marketplace with modern and midcentury lighting options that are minimal and also affordable and I am SO happy to be able to work with them to create my first light fixture, the Archer pendant.

Flea Market Finds

burly wood, boat lamp, bronze deer for cabin

This weekend we also made it over to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl Flea Market, where I found a few great items for the cabin. We picked up  (#1) this old bronze boat light fixture that we plan on putting by the cabin’s front door, (#2) a bronze (freaking heavy) deer to sit by the fireplace, and (#3) a pretty burl wood table (also freaking heavy) that will hopefully work as a nightstand in the cabin bedroom.

Every time we go to this flea market we always see the well prepared patrons with their little carts to tow things around and their big hats to block out the sun and somehow we always come completely unprepared for basically anything. We are the ones that show up with no cash so we have to wait in the long line for the ATM, have no concept of how hot it gets in Pasadena since we live by the ocean where it is permanently 70 degrees, and we also come late so we have to carry whatever finds we have about 2 miles to our parking spot. You would think we would learn our lesson after the first 5 trips, but I am sure we will be there next month in the exact same predicament. Somehow it just isn’t a successful flea market day if we don’t come out of there dazed, sun burned, and with sore muscles. I am happy to say this weekend was a true success.
