You know what's even better than coming across a gorgeous, eco-friendly and available modern piece of outdoor furniture? Buying that piece of furniture from a lovely couple completely deserving of your business. Perhaps one of our greatest pleasures of doing this job is getting to know the people behind the brand names of furniture out there, and it was especially nice to get to know the folks behind a brand new modern outdoor furniture company that's fresh, stylish and must-have for this upcoming outdoor season.
Andrew Stoneman and Laura Haskell, besides being adorably in love and the new parents of the cute and almost 2 years old Laird, are also behind what's one of the coolest looking new modern outdoor furniture collections that we've seen in awhile: the Haskell Collection. A new collection that just so happens to be one of 2Modern's newest and most anticipated vendors!
We got to sit down with both Andrew and Laura to hear about their backgrounds (creative yet surprising), why they decided to go into the furniture business and particularly the outdoor furniture business (really genuine and touching) and what makes their new products able to compete and stand out in a sea of pretty cool furniture (fresh details we've never seen before and their absolutely astounding cradle-to-cradle eco-friendly and sustainability features.) They were both not only knowledgeable about their field and their company, but they were friendly, kind and witty, too.
We'll admit: we liked them so much we're splitting their interview into two parts. You can check out the first part below, and you'll want to check back next week when we post the second part and get a little more indepth into each designer's backgrounds.
