And, just to Sweden the deal (see what I did there), I’ll deliver all the pieces sold locally with a homemade meatball sandwich.
Sweazy has been making furniture off and on for over twenty years -- between making music and modeling -- but now it’s his full time gig. He won’t divulge his meatball recipe, but he says his inspiration comes from reusing and re-inventing things. “My parents let me take apart my toys and listen to Steve Martin albums. It's likely their fault,” he jokes.
Years ago he built several pieces out of flooring from Skateland, a defunct skating rink. More recently he was able to get his hands on a couple of lanes from Imperial Lanes, a defunct bowling alley. Materials like this don't show up every day, so a large part of his work comes from American hardwoods, a local distributor. “Most of my work is commission based. I meet with clients, look at the space then custom design pieces to fit their needs. Good design inspires me,” he says.
