Tracy Bulla -- Furniture Today, April 1, 2010
Vintage becomes modern in an amalgamation of industrial-inspired offerings, complete with accents of Steampunk. Old designs find new life with a fresh, relevant perspective, incorporating elemental, simple materials like iron, concrete, wood and glass. Streamlined and stripped-down, the pure essence of minimalism converts found objects into modernist must-haves.
ALL PRICES ARE SUGGESTED RETAIL.
