About AJ's Antique Revival

I am a treasure hunter. I restore, refurbish and revamp antiques, collectables, and what some consider junk. I fix them up and find them a new home.

AJ’s Original Live Edge & Reclaimed Wood

Black Walnut Boomerang Coffee Table

This unique, boomerang shaped, live edge coffee table is quite a rare piece. The contrast colouring in the wood is fantastic, with great detail in the rich grain and a cool passthrough. The shape pairs nicely with the 3 steel hairpin legs giving it that midcentury modern look.

The Tillsonburg Black Walnut Dinning Table

This gorgeous black walnut live edge wood has been repurposed into a modern yet edgy, industrial chic table. The wood grain and detail in the figure pop, and the table has been professionally lacquered to protect the surface, yet not over power the look of the wood. The powder coated black steel legs not only hold up the 2 1/2″ thick wood slab, but also adds that sleek yet industrial feel. The colour and tones in the wood and the live edge allow this table to tie into a lot of different spaces. This table is perfect for a smaller space or as a kitchen dinning table.

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
