It’s All About the Patina

Furniture should be functional and inviting. It should tell a story, spark conversation, and should definitely be something that can stand the test of time and be passed down to generations.
I love to rework pieces and bring back their functionality. The ideal restoration job for me, is one where the patina is preserved and the piece is protected for years of enjoyment. It’s that rustic approach to restoration and repurposing that really gets my creative juices flowing. It’s not about sanding the antique wood down to the bare bones and making it brand new, its about breathing new life into a piece and letting its flaws or marks show history and be points of enjoyment.

My reclaimed and repurposed pieces always tend to fall somewhere in between a masculine and feminine genre. For example, pairing cold cast iron piping with soft painted mason jars, my pipe lighting designs are great for any space. The vintage industrial style makes them a lighting statement rather than just a standard lamp. It’s that yin & yang that I also bring to my furniture design, interior decorating and custom work too. I am always pairing clean lines and versatility with rustic influences.

If you are looking for a specific something, have an idea in mind, need a piece reworked or have one you want to part with, give me a shout!

Cheers,

AJ
