Reclaimed wood turned modern furniture
At this year’s Wanted Design show during New York Design Week 12 contemporary designers unveiled 12 fresh new designs made entirely of lumber reclaimed from blighted New York City buildings.
Bellboy used pieces of wood salvaged from a Park Avenue water tower to build a beautifully sculpted chair.
Design Brigade showcased a beautiful ‘Low Table’ made from Coney Island boardwalk planks. The table beautifully exhibits the weathered texture of the wooden planks that compose it, and it features slots for storing books, magazines, and other media.
Tri-Lox‘s drafting table is made from wood salvaged from the Brooklyn Bridge. A matching stool rounds out the design.
Fort Makers created this Stock Bar from a fitting material – wood casks salvaged from a distillery in Flushing.
