The economy and the housing market may both be in a slump, but interior designer Jason Phillips is clearly not following suit. The young designer-artist is dreaming up inspiring interior decor at an amazing rate.
One piece that truly stands out above the rest is Jason’s new Grain Mesh Table. It’s glossy and opulent, modern yet classy. Powder-coated metal mesh and polished-gold plating swirl together to give the piece rich, amazing patterns. Each curved line in the table appears to have a different texture while somehow feeling smooth and glossy. Even more interesting is that the table sits only ankle-high but is raised just slightly off the floor, making it look like it’s actually hovering.
Jason’s Bamboo Pedestals are intriguing from any angle. The core of the pedestal is made from bamboo and finished with a blonde or espresso veneer, but the real character of these pieces is the amorphous shape and ambiguous function. Formed into various heights with a high sheen, the pedestals could be used for all kinds of things—to show off unique collectibles, host a vase of beautiful flowers, or even serve as funky stools.
The Freeform Console is more art than anything else. In fact, it has the distinct feel of art imitating life—farm life to be exact. From a distance, the unique resin colors make the piece look like a grazing cow. The Freeform is offered in either all-natural wood or wood with metallic accents, but either way it’s a piece for indoors or out. There’s no telling what use you’ll find for this bovine-esque treasure, but no doubt it’ll always be good for at least one thing: starting conversations.
If there’s one thing we’ve come to expect from Jason Phillips, it’s that we never know what to expect. Looking forward to more great design, Jason.
