Samantha Hartman is the all-around creative mind behind Infinite Abyss. A one woman show, she designs, plans, builds, markets, packages, ships, photographs, styles, and creates the brand. Originally from Pittsburgh, she currently resides in Wyoming but is always traveling to enjoy new sights and experiences. Samantha loves to take old things and bring them back to life, because they are on a never-ending journey, and so are you.
Infinite Abyss combines a love of reclaimed materials with an interest in modern design to create décor for the home that is a rustic take on a classic style. Each piece is meticulously crafted from salvaged wood and 100-year-old barnwood in a small town in Wyoming. A lot of inspiration is drawn from the idea of turning old, discarded objects into new, one-of-a-kind designs, and that is why the search for items with an interesting history never ends – it is important that each product is unique and full of character. She scours local lumber yards, flea markets, estate sales, and even abandoned farmhouses for the perfect materials.
In August 2016, she was chosen out of thousands of applicants from around the world to attend Etsy Open Call in NYC. Her and thirty five others spent a few days at the Etsy headquarters pitching their lines to stores such as Macy's, Whole Foods, and Paper Source, as well as hundreds of small shops across the county.
Samantha is also currently writing a book called Wood Pallet Wonders, with photographs and instructions on how to build twenty home decor and storage projects from pallets. The book is due out in the fall of 2017.
Reclaimed history for your everyday adventure. This is Infinite Abyss.
