In anticipation of the Herman Miller Summer Sale beginning this Friday, June 3, we will be dedicating this week’s blog posts to all things Herman Miller. To start things off, a video from Herman Miller on their designs.
Vastu is pleased to welcome back artist Allen Levy. Stop by between now and July to see and purchase Levy’s great contemporary pieces.
From Fort Wayne, Indian, Levy graduated from Purdue University with a degree in marketing. After spending years in the corporate world, he decided to follow his passion and become a full-time artist, a passion he discovered while taking an elective art class in college.
He considers each painting a new artistic journey and is interested in the experimentation of color, light and luminosity while striving to create a sense of balance within each composition. In Levy’s pieces, you’ll often find an intense interplay between organic flow and structured ideas and the limitless possibilities that lie between.
Levy on his inspiration:
“My inspiration can come from a variety of sources including personal experiences, immediate surroundings, music, and the enjoyment of simply being creative. There are pieces that are densely and aggressively painted, and others that possess a more luminous and tranquil quality. I want my paintings to make you feel something and I use a range of mood, color and composition to get you there.”
During their trip to this year’s ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair), Vastu co-owners Jason Claire and Eric Kole spotted new introductions from lighting company, LZF. Introducing the Armadillo Pendant…
…and the Pleg Sconce.

This weekend is the summer Midcity Artists Open Studios event. Not only does this annual event allow you to tour the studios of local artists, you can also support these artists by buying local.
What is the concept behind buying local?
These days, it’s very common for people to go to the farmers market to “buy local” products, which have been produced or grown in close proximity to where they live. But do people buy local because they care about the way the products have been treated or because in so doing, they can also sustain and grow the local economy of their neighbors?
In case you missed it, we’ve been sharing some of our favorite products in a series of ’Vastu from A to Z’ blog posts over the past two weeks.
