i have been noticing more and more, items that are either reclaimed wood from railroad scraps, furniture inspired by factory elements and other various materials re-purposed.
perfect example of industrial. modern. chic.
this first desk made me literally gasp when i saw it in person at crate & barrel. the detail on the table top was amazing and i loved the modern shape juxtaposed by the rustic nature of the materials.
made from reclaimed telephone poles
crate & barrel $1299
classic warehouse lighting
z gallerie $299
reclaimed wood from factories, mills and warehouses.
i've seen this style of coffee table at a couple different stores.
z gallerie $599
reclaimed antique doors create this tabletop
wouldn't this be great as a kitchen table with modern chairs?
