Ariele Alasko


New York-based carpenter Ariele Alasko creates geometric patchwork panels and tabletops from salvaged scraps of wood found around her Brooklyn neighbourhood. Her pieces have an eccentric charm, fitting in with the aesthetic discussed in our Interiors Spring/Summer 2014 industry trend, Kinfolk

Trained as a sculptor before finding her niche in furniture making, Alasko sells pieces individually, works to commission, and has also designed the interior of Californian restaurant Il Vecchio

Alasko is a great example of an independent designer whose following is partly due to her strong social media presence; she has more than 60,000 followers on Instagram and posts regularly to her inspiring blog Brooklyn to West. To see how other designers and brands utilise social media, see our Best of the Design Blogs report series.
