Astro Biz: Neptune Furniture

Neptune FurnitureMany businesses, products, and places have names rooted in space and astronomy. We’re featuring one every Tuesday on Seattle Astronomy.

This week’s Astro Biz is Neptune Furniture. The company’s products are handcrafted on Vashon Island by artist Jim Chobot. Each unique piece is puzzled from the intriguing shapes found in the driftwoods of the Pacific Northwest coast. Chabot’s wife Jackie manages their stall in Seattle’s Pike Place Market.

We chose Neptune Furniture this week because the ice giant planet appears close to the Moon on Wednesday, We also spotted the booth while wandering the Market last week. Coincidence?
