What's Inspiring Me

What's inspiring me?... keeping it green, especially when it comes to reclaimed wood.  If post on the beauty and eco- benefits before. Reclaimed species can be more durable and the patina of these centuries old logs and boards add depth to the design aesthetic. Due to disease and blight there are species such as Chestnut that are lost and are found by the reclaiming process.

Reclaimed wood can also be stained... and the ligh natural log makes a unique coffee table

What a wonderful rustic mantel

 This NYC coop uses reclaimed wood for the kitchen countertop and bar stools.
