But when have I ever been accused of being practical?
Strawser and Smith Inc is based in Brooklyn, New York, and they repurpose vintage industrial relics to create stunning furniture. I love the contrast between the weathered, rough hewn, old materials and the modern refurbishment. Gorgeous stuff indeed. Click on the pics to go to the item on their site.
