Falling Line, the first rug collection available from Good Thing, was designed by Sam Anderson in the spirit of the Bauhaus movement.

NEW YORK -- Good Thing, an award winning manufacturer with a mission to produce everyday objects that are both well designed and accessible, has expanded its product line to include furniture, lighting and rugs.

To call attention to the new categories, Good Life premiered a special collection at ICFF booth #463. On show were works by designers MSDS, Chen Chen & Kai WIlliams, Visibility, Sam Anderson and Good Thing's founder, Jamie Wolfond, who have each contributed a design for one object. Each designer engaged with a different material and process, including blown glass, cast terracotta, woven wool, solid ash, and spun aluminum.

Sam Anderson, a product designer based in Brooklyn, New York, designed the Falling Line Rug collection in the spirit of the Bauhaus movement. She describes the series of hand-woven rugs as a stage for color experimentation, providing not only a pleasant presence of hue, but a look at the dynamic and emotive potential of a color scheme. Crafted of 100 percent New Zealand wool, the rugs retail at $950 in 5'7" x 7'11".

Good Thing reports that its products are sold at hundreds of retailers internationally, including MoMA, Urban Outfitters, Le Bon Marche, and ITO-YA. In January 2017, Forbes Magazine awarded Good Thing's founder and creative director, Jamie Wolfond, the Top 30 Under 30 award for art and design.
