Intro to the MODERN LIVING Showhouse
For those of you that missed us at Dwell on Design, (and for those of you still wanting more!) here’s the trailer that was playing at the event. This video shows the beginnings of the MODERN LIVING Showhouse presented by Electrolux, a 400 sq. ft. prefab house built by Reclaimed Space in Austin, TX.
Meet Zem Joaquin, our fearless ecofabulous founder, and hear from a few of the other players involved in this project: Tracen and Kimber, the founders of Reclaimed Space, discuss the “small house movement,” receiving their first call from Dwell Magazine, and take you through all of the salvaged materials used to build the MODERN LIVING Showhouse.
Josiah Cain, the principal landscape architect of Design Ecology, gives a tour of his greenhouse and shares his vision for vegetated walls on the Showhouse. See the incredible vintage furniture warehouse of Joe Marcinkowkski, owner of Metro Retro Furniture and eBay top-seller midcenturyguy, and meet Corri McFadden, eBay top seller EDrop-Off Express, as she takes us through the gorgeous pre-owned clothes, shoes and accessories that will be styled in the Showhouse closet – after all, the greenest product is often one that already exists!
We’re working on getting everything loaded for an interactive photo tour of the space, complete with info on fabric styles, paint colors, product specifications, and more! In the meantime, take a look at some of the partners involved in the project.
