Urban Prairie

Chris Brown is the genius behind Urban Prairie. A man with a finely tuned eye for the found and forlorn, Chris' edgy out of the box country style is inspiring the next generation of "found" collectors. Probably the funkiest looking site I've seen in ages. Chris says, “I’ve found that the people that are drawn to my style, my design sense are more than just collectors. They are people who want to live a simple life with things they love around them - in an interesting way.” Don't miss his blog Urban Prairie Refueled or his profiles of other collectors and interview with D'Ette Cole.

All images from Urban Prairie website. The ones marked Marfa Texas are from the Marfa Installation by the fabulous D'Ette Cole who was featured here.

How wonderful - I do hope he succeeds in inspiring young people to start a collection of something that they love! A fantastic post Jo!

There seems to be this whole Texas/ urban country thing going on. Chris and D'Ette Cole are friends and share the same ethos. Chris emailed me after the D'Ette post but I already had the post lined up on him. Is there something like this in Australia? I don't know. D'Ette and friends run this twice yearly antique/found object "muster" called Clutter. God I wish I could go!

I'm dying to go to Clutter - bet it beats the pants off of Market. These folks are completely inspiring to me.
