Bettie, what’s on your personal design to-do list right now? I have had one major task on my design TO DO list for the last little while now which was re-designing my website with my talented friend Noah Earle of Able. I’m happy to say that the new site went live recently. Working with Noah was such an enjoyable experience and he did nothing less than impress. You can check out the site at bettiecott.com
Currently at the top of my list of studio projects are a sideboard, entertainment cabinet, music stand, shelving and speaker stands that have been commissioned by clients.
I am also continuing to grow my own collection of speculative, conceptual and collaborative work. Presently, I am in the process of developing variations of the Palmer Bench along with a family of objects to compliment the pieces.
I will soon follow suit with the existing Levy Table.
Aside from commissioned projects, I am designing shelving, coat racks, lighting and jewelry. For me, the most exciting piece I am working on is a personal one; a surprise that I am designing and building for my friend’s new baby.
