Vanessa Chew, milk crates, furniture from waste, and more.

In honor of our 125th post (woohoo!), I thought I’d give you a little insight into how people discover this blog. Though search engines are by no means our biggest drivers of traffic, the search engine terms with which people end up finding us are pretty interesting and rather enlightening:

“vanessa chew” elemental form (Thanks, Vanessa and fans!) is in the lead: see Out of place and happening now (in Manhattan).

milk crates and crates, with a variety of words attached to them, also account for a solid chunk of finds: see Reconsidering the milk crate.

Searches like furniture from waste, how to make furniture from waste, “how to” “cardboard bookshelf” diy, and product new ideas for furniture from waste have definitely motivated us to write more posts like: Why not… make some furniture?, Furniture of waste., and  The art of (actual) waste.

July 18′s daily design idea is we want to know what ideas, problems, and solutions you’re searching for. Leave a comment or email us if there’s something you want help finding.
