The Alpine is one of our most popular Texas designs. The design is basically our Waterloo design—just mapped onto the shape of Texas. We named the piece after small college town in the high desert of the Trans-Pecos region of Texas. Alpine’s proximity to Marfa, Fort Davis, and Big Bend place Alpine at the center of learning and tourism in West Texas. The muted colors of the reclaimed white siding and cedar boards used in this piece were intended to reflect the stark beauty of the landscape surrounding this little Texas town.
To give the design a bit of an update and to add a little warmth, we swapped the cedar for reclaimed pine. We get requests for these all the time, so if you’ve been wanting one, now’s your chance.
Take a drive down to Marfa, Texas, and you’ll see why we named this colorful Texas Wall Hanging after this magical, little West Texas town. Though small in size, the little berg makes up for what it lacks in population with a cast of colorful characters straight out of a Hollywood movie. With this in mind we designed the Marfa Texas Wall Hanging with many stripes of colorful pieces of wood complemented with reclaimed pine to contrast the bright colors.
Like the Alpine, the Marfa is basically the same design as our Waterloo. This time around, we decided to update the piece with our popular ‘76 colors. Can you dig it, bro?
The Terlingua is named after the famous Texas ghost town. The colors in this piece are meant to suggest the turquoise and copper jewelry found in shops and markets throughout West Texas. This Texas wall hanging features reclaimed pine painted in white, bronze, and turquoise wood chevrons, and reclaimed pine as a complement to the brightly-colored central design element.
There wasn’t anything we really wanted to do in the way of updating this classic Hemlock & Heather design, so if you wanted a Terlingua and missed the boat, now’s your chance to jump on board!
Balmorhea is the name of a town, a lake, and a state park in West Texas. The area is best known for the spring-fed pool (built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930's) that acts as the state park's main attraction—especially in the summer when it’s a thousand degrees outside and there’s no rain or temperature relief in sight. The colors in this piece draw from the rich tapestry of the natural environment of the Chihuahuan Desert, against which the cool, blue oasis of the piece's namesake is set.
The only thing we’ve updated about this piece are the shades of a few of the colors. Otherwise, it’s basically the same as the original. I still love this piece, and I hope you will too.
The Blanco takes its name from the nearby spring-fed Blanco River. The original was made with castaway bits of black walnut and a single strip of cool clean white. Simple and modern, the Blanco is the perfect complement to any contemporary design aesthetic.
To update this piece (and to avoid the insanely high cost of new wood at this time), we switched out the walnut for reclaimed pine. This piece has been very popular with guys, and we think that the update with the rugged pine is a great change. Get your dude one while you can!
We want to take this opportunity to thank you for your business these past 9 years—and into the future. Every wall hanging you buy from us is made 100% by hand, by us, and supports our family. We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to live our lives in this way, making things that we love, and that, hopefully, you love as well.
