Forget grungy: upcycled gets downright gorgeous
Creating art, decor and furniture with upcycled materials is not just a fleeting design fad. It's a way of living for many artists who want to create items that are sustainable and friendly to our earth. Fortunately, a lot of upcycled pieces are on the forefront of design as well.
Meet Swedish Guy Design
. "Swedish Guy" grew up on a farm in Minnesota with his Swedish/
Norwegian family, then became certified
as a Green Builder in San Francisco. What's really interesting is that the source of material for all of his gorgeous
pieces--from a modern lamp to a magazine rack to an iPhone dock--is French oak wine barrels. Any proud Californian will love
that detail, right?
And wow, I'm just in love with that midcentury-modern serving tray, even if it's a wee bit costly.
If you are a design enthusiast or just someone who appreciates modern
design and re-claimed products, happy shopping. -Kirsten
