Happy Monday everyone! Today I have the opportunity to interview and showcase an amazing artist… Scott Coppersmith Designs! I have a huge respect and love for those who have the ability to maintain a green lifestyle and also appreciate the arts and those rolled into one make for some amazing work. This year I went to UNIQUE L.A., where I first stumbled upon Scott Coppersmith Designs. I was totally drawn to his work. It’s not only up-cycled materials, but also an amazing piece of decor that I’ve rarely seen in homes or stylish events. I think Scott has started a new revolution in the wedding + style world with his unique designs and am so privileged to have him in The Den!
Amber-The Inspiration Den // Scott-Scott Coppersmith Designs
Amber: What inspired you to start designing and building Lighting + Furniture pieces out of up-cycled materials?
Scott: I used to be a builder and 2/3 of America’s landfills are construction debris. I saw it everyday and decided to do something about it
Amber: How do you prepare/get inspired for designing a new project?
Scott: Inspiration comes from anywhere and everywhere. You just have to be open to it. Don’t discredit or discount things before really thinking about them. It’s a lot of brainwork but I see it as that’s what I’m getting paid for.
Amber: Out of all the pieces you’ve created is there one in particular that you love a little more than the others?
Scott: They all have they’re fun bits. I usually like the latest more than any other simply bc it’s fresh and new to me, too. But I am constantly evolving my art so as I push boundaries I am more proud of each piece. I still one of the first ones. I know I’ll always keep it. I suppose that despite it being a total price of shite it reminds me of a) where I’ve come b) how far I’ve come c) why to keep on going when I think I’ve made something crappy (sometimes you have to make 20 before there’s a good one worthy of the market).
