Wood With a Past: Green Trend

Like our favorite characters in fiction and film, furniture with a good backstory has unmistakable appeal. New designs using reclaimed wood are conversation starters that will also stand the test of time:

Reclaimed Wood, Inflated Wood, Cappellini, trend, recycled

Inflated Wood by Cappellini: Part of Zanini de Zanine’s limited edition Reclaimed Woods series, Inflated Wood plays with new shapes for wood furniture using exclusively Brazilian hardwoods recovered from columns, beams, stairs, and other architectural elements in demolished Brazilian homes. www.cappellini.it

F.T.B. by Busnelli, bookcase, reclaimed wood, trend

F.T.B. by Busnelli: A new interpretation of Jacopo Gardella’s 1980s bookcase, Busnelli’s F.T.B. shelving system is uses light and dark wood, with side elements made partially with recycled panels. Shelves are made of metal sheet coated with acid-oxidized brass, with matching metal supports. www.busnelli.it

Broom, Emeco, Philippe Starck, reclaimed wood, trend

Broom by Emeco: Philippe Starck and Emeco’s Broom chair is made from 75 percent waste polypropylene and 15 percent reclaimed wood—material that would normally be swept into the trash is now a stackable, and eventually recyclable, side chair available in a range of colors. www.emeco.net

Mill, table, reclaimed wood, trend
