  • Booth: 880

Mailbox posts occupy a prominent position in front of our homes, but unfortunately our choices are strictly limited to a few bland, common designs.  Last November I launched Bartu Design, and began creating bold, contemporary mailbox posts, which are unlike any available today.  The clean simple curves of white oak form modern designs that are juxtaposed with the classic black mailbox. The resulting collaboration of contemporary and classic, natural and manmade, is a striking form that brings remarkable beauty from an unexpected source.

Display this art as attention-getting curbside mailboxes, or show them inside or outside the home for some creative drama.  Order them without the mailbox, and add your own art for a truly unique experience.  Visit booth 880 to discover that final piece, which will provide the exclamation point to your masterful creation.  The cherry on top for your beautiful home.
