Reimagined Furniture for Interesting People
How I Rescue
I search (obsessively) for vintage and pre-loved quality furniture pieces then reimagine them. Usually I don’t know what I’m going to do with a rescued piece until I’ve sat and looked at it, sketched out a few (sometimes awful) ideas, gone off to work on something else and then had a cup of tea.
The result is a menagerie of completely unique items with mysterious pasts and stories to tell. Each time a piece is brought back to life, it waits for just the right interesting person to appreciate it and give it a new home.
I know that among the thousands of tons of furniture our society takes to landfill every day, there are some pieces that are innately interesting or beautiful. These pieces have “been around the block”, they’ve seen some things in their time, but with love and care, they will be irreplaceable. In this way they’re just like my favorite people, and I want to have them in my life.
