MICHAEL ARAM: CRAFT-MADE DESIGN


Designer Michael Aram celebrates craft, metal and nature.  From tableware to furniture, his work reflects the handmade process.  One can entirely experience his collections' soulful and artisanal energy in his flagship store in Chelsea, N.Y.. The newly refurbished 19th century carriage house is industrial chic and an inspiring space with beautiful wall-cast aluminum tiled walls, reminiscent of his stunning pieces.




Meeting Michael Aram with the BlogTour NYC group was a great priveledge!  He spoke to all of us about his inspiring time  while living in India and how he wanted to bring back the rich metalworking traditions of the skilled artisans. He is really easy to talk to, a real people person and his passion for the art of making is truly  evident and invigorating!
 


Are you gasping from the intricate details? 
I did..... see more of his collection below.




Are you diggin' the dog bowl in the upper left corner (pic above)? 
The metal tableware can be mixed with the porcelain china. Love that!






I was really drawn to  the bark vases. They have tiny unexpected holes to weave flowers or tall grasses through. I can visualize the three-dimensional effect...a magnificent centerpiece and arrangement it must be! 

Michael Aram designs are perfect for the urban, hip couple looking to accessorize their home. Check out my faves from his collection featured on my Project Decor shop:
