This Airstream – Maricopa, aptly named for the county in Arizona she came to us from – has been designed and renovated by the folks at perpetually devastated – a partnership of makers and doers committed to excellent craftsmanship, authentic aesthetics, and livable art. This 1967 Caravel was beautiful to begin with (as these sixties relics are want to be), but we decided to up the ante, taking it as an opportunity to combine crafting with reclaimed wood and the Airstream renovation we’re known for.
The lath used to create the floor came from a home we’re presently remodeling in Seattle. It was built in 1924, and we were overjoyed to be able to salvage these pieces. We brought them back to the workshop in California, and decided against a perfectly consistent pattern, opting instead to reflect the creative force of chance, disorder, even chaos. These boards are not perfect, they are not completely straight. They are well worn and well loved – the perfect foundation for art meant to be lived in. Life isn’t perfect, and art shouldn’t be either. This is a labor of love for the craft, folks.
Step inside this Caravel’s impeccable mirror-finished exterior to discover a fully furnished atmosphere set off by the hand-crafted floor. This intricate design complements the caramel cushions and golden hues of the interior lights. We’ve also appointed the Airstream with some of our favorite goodies to help you settle in and feel at home, including a faribault woolen blanket, compagnie de provence soap, echoview wool dish drying mat, throws, pillows, a simple stripe sheet set, and more. Everything is included!
