As I was cleaning up my drive I noticed a folder of photos documenting another messy clean-up…the House Industries flood of 2003. The water line in our former storage facility came close to 6 feet. Archive materials, our then “new” Shag catalog shipment, Neutra Boomerang chairs, original artwork, prototypes, films, packaging, and much more…all in the dumpster. The bottom shot shows some of the salvaged artwork during the recovery/drying process. So if you have any “vintage” House ephemera, hang on to it. We might ask to buy it back.
