Farm Bench by Holler Design

Haling from Tennessee and with a name like “Farm Bench,” one would be tempted to write this little seat off as a country bumpkin.  But don’t be deceived. This rear-end rest stop is equally at home in a country garden as it is in a downtown loft.  Made by Holler Design, the “Farm Bench” maintains all the irreplaceable charm of reclaimed wood while serving up all the aesthetic appeal of industrial modernism.

The made-to-order bench comes with one and two-seater options, as well as a variety of finish and color choices. And with locally-sourced wood and environmentally-safe materials used in the creation, you can rest assured that this piece of furniture is not only beautiful but sustainable.  So whether the end of the day finds you knocking mud off your boots or laying your suit out for tomorrow, consider this bench a lovely place to take a load off.

ETSY – Reclaimed IPE Coney Island Boardwalk Trivet

Rest your hot dogs on a piece of history.

About 3 years ago the New York City parks department began replacing parts of the very weathered Coney Island boardwalk and simply throwing away a landmark. Luckily conservationists like Martins Straupe & Kurt VonEllers were able to claim some pieces of their own and come up with an attractive modular design for a trivet. Each piece is made from IPE wood reclaimed from a 2010 renovation of the boardwalk and is hand-notched and then sanded by hand in Jersey City, New Jersey. The number of formations you can make could be limitless but this collection is limited so head on over to Etsy to claim yours.

Available at the dfnqline shop on Etsy.
