Cold Sun

As you may have noticed, we're pretty determined when it comes to tracking down those elusive items on our wantlist. This particular one had lingered for an infuriatingly long time, but we lucked out last week when our pals at Denver's Mod Livin' announced the recent arrival of a certain circular metal wall sculpture. Sure enough, it was the exact one we'd been waiting for: Esperanto.

Produced in the 70s by the Marc Creates company, this Brutalist sculpture was the brainchild of artist and founder, Marc Weinstein. Over forty years later, Marc Creates is still in business and is still manufacturing several of its signature pieces; however, this specific model has long since been discontinued. Consequently, we'd been on the hunt for a vintage example for nearly three years.

At 36 inches in diameter, we knew this double-tiered beast would be the complementary piece that would successfully tie the whole room together. Thankfully, it arrived in perfect condition—right down to its original tag—and we couldn't be happier! Thanks again for all of your help, Amanda!
