Before Christmas, I received an unexpected mystery package from friends. It was an Arunas Oslapas - http://oslapas.wix.com/metal, of Red Rivet Studios. I had met Arunas some years ago and admired his work. I loved the woven metal and other metal works that resembled quilts. My Oslapas turned out to be a beautiful (my family room colors) woven metal umbrella stand. It was love at first sight! To make it a bit more practical addition to our space, Mike repurposed it with a round wood base and top. Now the umbrella stand is the best part of our new end-table.
