Behind The Scenes

Attend Your First Art Festival
May 7, 2018 12:01:00 PM

People often ask us, “How do you come up with your design ideas, and how do you make them so appealing to everyone?” To answer this, we have to dive into the history of 7055, Inc. We look back to our origins in 1995 – when we were still called “The Test of Time” and had just started pounding the pavement to make some sales. Very early on in our adventures, we were introduced to the world of Art Festivals. We’ve been doing art festivals for over 20 years because we love meeting our customers, getting feedback on new products, and making friends along the way. This is an exciting side of our business that not a lot of people know about, and we want to invite everyone to come visit us at an art festival – especially if it’s your first time experiencing one of these fun events.

Have You Seen Our Willows?
Jan 31, 2018 2:29:41 PM

We have added Willows to our Artisan Collection.  This piece is a set of three slightly curved panels that have a distressed copper finish with a wide central wavy line through them.  This piece started as a doodle on piece of scrap paper that we transformed from paper to steel.  To further highlight the contrasting central wave, there are four raised silver waves that run through the panels along side the wider wave.

Natural Summer Inspiration
Jun 21, 2017 3:25:00 PM

Summer is finally back!  Here in Iowa that means time outside in the sunshine (preferably near water), fast moving rain storms, and bugs.  I will not be discussing bugs further, as I place bugs firmly in the “negative things of summer” column.  Storms, sunshine, outdoors/nature, and water are always exciting and do inspire our art here at 7055 Inc.  Some of our pieces are clearly inspired by nature.  From what we have named them to how the pieces look, these pieces are clearly our interpretation of nature.  I have three examples of these pieces.  Then, I will share with you my more abstract interpretation of one of our pieces.

2017 Decor Trends
Apr 19, 2017 9:20:00 AM

I have spent my morning reading articles about both the predicted 2017 decor trends and what trends currently are in 2017.  After reading blog articles on several design websites, I believe that I can make wall art recommendations based on these trends.  Decorist Elle Decor Vogue House Beautiful

To many of us that live in places that experience four distinct seasons, winter equals.....a need to change our space!

Fall is back, well almost... it is the beginning of September, the air is feeling a bit more crisp and the sun is setting a bit earlier. Though not quite time for the leaves to change, fall is definitely coming and we can't wait!!
