be careful out there

Like a proud daddy with his babies, I thought I’d take a picture of the new angelo:HOME products before they go on the trailer and into the market.


What a long strange trip it’s been, as the Grateful Dead put it.  What started out as an inspiration has turned into a real product line, with quality, prices that consumers will pay, and most importantly, the point of view of an important person in the design world, Angelo Surmelis.

What makes this product line important is its accessibility by people of all income classes.  You don’t have to be rich.  You can be average and still have great design.   Angelo wants to reach everyone, not just the privileged.  The privileged already have plenty of design help.

So, here we go, on a new voyage.  You kids be careful out there. 


  1. It's scary to put your "kids" out in the world. I'm just glad that one of their "parents" was there to see them off....THANK YOU!

    BTW, say "UP" today and loved it. Emotional mess....good stuff.

  2. I'll take one of each, please ;-)

    After all the work you've done, it must've been quite a moment for you when you saw all these pieces of furniture together in one place :-) It's been fun following along as Angelo's line has gone from inspiration to reality :-)

    Congratulations, Tom!! And of course, congratulations to Angelo too, and everyone else who's been involved in the process :-)

    Make sure angelo:HOME comes to Canada, please :-)
