No longer just John Daly's pre-golf meal, Five Fifths is also the name of a new "modern organic" furniture shop whose room-sharpeners boast sharp angles, natural edges & exposed joints, and're all created by a sculpture-focused Tyler grad who schooled himself in the bark arts in order to outfit every room of his apartment with complementary furnishings, though everyone's just going to end up staring at your bedroom's chest. A peek:
Offerings here include the wall-mounted "Whatnot", which uses a single board to create an "uninterrupted flow", and a floor-resting, three-tiered job sporting live-edged planks of knotty woods, so don't be surprised when Elin shows up to attack it.
Highlights include a joinable set made from complementary, book-matched planks, and a coffee joint with a top 'n leg formed from a single board bent at 90 degrees, leaving it just eight degrees shy of being a piece of wood Jessica Simpson would touch.
Seating & Storage
Stash your junk in a cabinet "pierced" by a
clutch, 235lb combo guard gnarly shelf, and stash your junky trunk in a tilt-top chair with a convertible back that doubles as a table when flat, though if the same can be said about your chest, it better be able to give sick headboard.
