Filthy Home — About Us

About Us

Filthy Home

Although launched in 2011, Filthy Home designs have been budding for decades. Inspired by raw, simple perspectives, Filthy Home resonates with vintage flare and modern sensuality. Capturing basic moments in life, both contemporary and historic, we value the unusual and sometimes unspoken familiarities that we all share in the overall experience of being human. Often fueled by those random explosions of creativity, embracing rather than avoiding traditional taboos, Filthy Home will rouse your senses. Go ahead…savor our specialties.

• 1989 – Learned he was good with power tools and built a rocking horse (for his awesome Sis' Angie) out of reclaimed oak and 2x4s.  The finishing touch was hair from his pony -- Chip’s tail ;)
