Don't make something unless it is both necessary and useful; but if it is both necessary and useful, don't hesitate to make it beautiful.
Matt Richards, my high school friend and former back-door neighbor in Texas, creates beautiful mobiles at his company, Ekko Mobiles.
I must own one (or two, or three!) for my home.
Here's a favorite:It's called Leaves. Wouldn't it be perfect hanging in the corner of a bedroom?
It's always fun to see where life takes people. In high school, Matt was into all things sports cars. And, now only twelve years later, he has a successful career as a talented artist and entrepreneur.
