Five Things with Chroma Lab!

Hi all.

Over the weekend, I was in Boston vending at the SOWA Open Market, and what lovely people did I meet? Well, lots. Two in particular, Alicia Cornwall and Tony Bevilacqua of Chroma Lab, were not only sincerely sweet, but their repurposed furniture is gorgeous, and well, I wish my home was filled with their colorful touch. Today, we have Five Things with Alicia and Tony (Lab Partners) of Chroma Lab. :D

1. So, Alicia and Tony, what's the cutest thing in the world?

We can answer this definitively. Our dog Cassie recently had an operation which resulted in a phantom pregnancy. She was restless for days until we got her two stuffed raccoon cubs to be her "babies." She builds them little nests, carries them everywhere, nurses them, and licks their faces. THAT is the cutest thing in the world.

2. The yummiest thing?

Alicia says the Sicilian sandwich--basil, mozzarella, tomatoes, and olive oil. A really fresh carrot can also be miraculous under the right circumstances. Tony says butternut squash ravioli.

3. A music album you think everyone should own?

Is it cheating to say the entire discography of the Talking Heads? Because that's what Alicia thinks everyone should own. Tony thinks it's the Beatles' Revolver. Can we both be right?

4. The most beautiful place (real or fiction)?


5. What would the ultimate art/studio space be like?

We'd like lots of windows and plenty of storage space along the walls. We're thinking a library-style paint storage system with ladders and card catalogs. It would be great to have a little photography studio for final product shots, and we'll also require lifts for our furniture--like parking lots in NYC. Tony humbly requests an indoor dog park. Our needs are simple, really...so when can we see the architectural models?!

Thanks again, Alicia & Tony!

And make sure to check out the full line on their site and shop!


  1. Followed a tweet over here to discover the cutest interview ever! And I'm not just saying that because Alicia and Tony have a dog named Cassie (I'm the only real human in the world with that name--only soap opera characters and dogs are named Cassie). These two are delightful--and so is their work! Off to wander around your blog, Virginia :)

  2. Hi Clementine (what an awesome name)! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog :D hope you enjoy your time here ;)

  3. Cassie, you better stop or you're gonna give us huge heads. But we thank you just the same.

    Virginia, is it too late to change the answer to number four? The answer is so obvious that we couldn't even see it in front of our faces: Hogwarts. Thanks to Alicia's sister Amy for enlightening us. :)

  4. hahah absolutely! Hogwarts pretty much is the coolest place, ever, for sure!
