The internet is full of countless interesting and amazing facts. Gone are the days when you might argue for hours about who scored the 1967 Stanley Cup winning goal for the Toronto Maple Leafs, or wonder about the best way to grow hot peppers.
But every now and then, in the midst of all the usual ‘answer to almost anything you can ask’ sorts of information you come across on the web, you’ll spot something that’ll make you look twice because of how unbelievable it seems.
Lenny Kravitz’s Wikipedia entry is just such a place. It has all the usual biographical and career tidbits, from banging pots and pans in his parents’ kitchen to the release of “Are You Gonna Go My Way”, which solidified his place in the higher echelons of rock stardom.
But if you scroll down, to the very bottom of the page, there’s a section titled ‘Categories’. It lists all the articles on Wikipedia that mention Kravitz. There, among titles like ‘American Rock Guitarists” and “Grammy Award Winners” are two that make you look twice.
‘American interior designers’ & ‘American furniture designers’
Huh? For real? In a word: yes. In 2003, the rocker founded Kravitz Design to focus on residential, commercial and product design. On the residential and commercial side, the design work covers a variety of home, office and industrial furniture and accessories.
In Toronto, you can find Kravitz Designs’ creations in two places. One, if you’re looking for home furnishings, is the CB2 furniture store on Queen St. W..
The other is right here at ADH Architectural Door & Cabinet Hardware. We feature a number of products from renowned manufacturer Rocky Mountain Hardware, including door and cabinet hardware and kitchen and bath accessories. Among the Rocky Mountain door and cabinet hardware collections available in our store is Trousdale, which the company developed in cooperation with Kravitz Design.
According to the Rocky Mountain website, the collection is:
‘Inspired by the architecture of the famed Trousdale Estates neighborhood in Beverly Hills, California—an enclave of mid-century modern homes that was put on the map in the 1950s and 60s by its celebrity residents—the collection features sleek architectural elements with angular profiles and a strong textural effect.’
We are very proud to carry the Rocky Mountain Trousdale Collection among the many other fine cabinet and door hardware collections we offer.
