Catskill Woodnet's Joshua Van Brakle and Tara Collins interview Nikita 

catskillmemberpng204pxNikita chats with Joshua VanBrakle and Tara Collins of the NY Watershed Agricultural Council. Topics range from living and working in the Catskills to sustainable design and production. Nikita talks about how his designs have evolved from the first patented futon sofabed (which was granted to him while living in upstate New York in the 1980s) to his new and current line of Convertible Furnishings for Indoors AND Outdoors. Josh, Tara and Nikita talk about mass-customization for wood products and the need to build durable goods that WON’T end up in our land fills.

So Grigoriev took out the three bolts that hold the frame together, pocketed them, and put the wooden pallets under his arm.

Looking back over the last twenty five years since futons first came onto the scene is an interesting look into the birth of a furniture category that would soon become a household name.
