"Today, we repurpose. We recycle and upcycle using some of the most basic and ordinary products. Come take a closer look how you can DIY and create a piece of furniture that is relaxing and rustically sophisticated."
"Three years ago, brothers Evan and Oliver Haslegrave moved into a raw space in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The brothers had founded a building and design company called hOmE ... Their own home in Greenpoint provides the perfect canvas for their building experiments. When they moved in, all that existed was the bathroom. They were able to build out everything else in an effort to maximize their working space — the carpentry shop is just off the kitchen, and rather than waste space with a sofa, there are comfy armchairs and a hammock for relaxing."
Enjoy all their uses of various reclaimed products - especially great use of reclaimed doors and windows, including in the bathroom ... "Shower curtains can be somewhat like cleaning yourself in a bag, so we used some old windows we had to prevent this feeling."
The Verona Dining Table is made from reclaimed wood from an Italian marble factory. The natural defects and imperfections are filled with corian in three different colours. The legs and base are constructed using copper plumbing pipes.
"Such great use of timber on the ceiling and walls. Such wonderful simplicity but sophistication with the stone bench/slab, metal look vanity basin and antique oriental pot and mirror." - Daryl Wark / designer
Historical Timber Floors's insight:
Love the soft and subtle warmth of the timber here - a feature yet quite unassuming -
""My favorite aspect of the piece is the many ways in which it contrasts perfection and imperfection," he said. "The precise geometry in contrast to the cracks and knots underneath. The reflectivity of the surface to the tarnish and streaking in the finish. The newness of the piece to the age of the timbers," he said."
"Chase + Aaron are both super creative and love creating things together. Aaron’s background is in architecture and Chase is a graphic designer and together they run a pretty rad etsy shop, Inkwise full of handcrafted wood and paper goods – so it’s no surprise their wedding is full of gorgeous handmade details. They made everything for their wedding, from the invitations to the wood walls to the cake stands to the bunting + more!
The biggest inspiration for their wedding day was old, reclaimed wood! They got tons of old fence boards and together cut, sawed, sanded, hammered, drilled, painted and laughed."
French designers Ciguë modelled this north London store for skin and haircare brand Aesop on a 1930s medical laboratory. Ciguë used a palette of traditional materials, including reclaimed wood sourced from a 200-year-old French monastery for the floors and cabinets. A single surface of polished white marble provides worktops and washbasins, with glass taps and pipes that show liquid flowing through them.
Wall panels and shelves in this north London design shop are made from reclaimed floorboards and scaffolding planks .... "We look for craftsmanship, quality, simplicity and durability in our range and this is reflected in the design of the store. We chose a simple colour scheme with raw, natural and reclaimed materials.
For example, the hanging shelving is made from reclaimed scaffolding planks. We sanded them back and left the wood untreated to allow the natural beauty of the wood to come through. The wall cladding is Victorian floorboards which we left bare."
bonnie and neil reclaimed:shadow boxes are handmade from Tasmanian oak reclaimed from houses across Victoria. The beauty of each box comes through in its dents and imperfections.
