“Siesta Butte” is a daybed that evokes the feelings of lounging in the red rocks of the Garden of the Gods. Pulling design inspiration from the American southwest as well as radical Italian design, “Siesta Butte” is a souvenir or a dimensional post-card to gift to a friend for their own vicarious travels.

“… And when the travelers came upon the divine topography they knew their pilgrimage was realized and so their songs grew silent. Once a resting place for drifter giants, a monolith remains and conjures questions of purpose and god’s whereabouts. The turtle pilgrims* believe that there is no doubt of the spirit before them and that indelibility inherently implies importance. At the end of their journey but far from the end of the world, the travelers now rest in the gaze of the sun with the fleshy ridges of red earth acting as a personal daybed. ‘Maybe it is just daybeds all the way down,’ speculates Rachel, the youngest of the turtle pilgrims.”

*Turtle pilgrims not included.

About Taylor Scott Ross Visit Showroom →

I believe play, speculation, and intentionality are paramount to meaningful design. I earned a BFA in Furniture Design from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2016 where I designed a collection of play furniture and objects for grown-ups to promote their inner child. Currently based in Brooklyn, NY while creating and collaborating with others who share my passion for imaginative and playful design. Growing up in the Woodlands, Texas, where all summer long was bring-your-kid-to-work day at my father's home building company, family and the built environment strongly influenced my childhood, education, and design work. Playgrounds and construction sites, surrealist paintings, and biomorphic + postmodern sculpture are among my biggest inspirations. I find myself drawn to the playfully absurd, using design as a lens to look at societal nuances, pop culture, mythology, and the end of the world. Nostalgia and fantasy are my tools as I create objects that tell a story from a twisted (maybe happier) reality.
