Industrial Revolution.


I got an email today from a company called American Furnishings, so I checked out their link, and lo and behold, some pretty cool stuff! I like what they call Vintage Industrial: Work benches from a decrepit Packard Motor Car plant become a kitchen island. Steel parts carts from a General Motors plant in Detroit become rolling liquor cabinets. Long forgotten wooden foundry objects become "high art" when placed on metal stands or hung on a wall. Large metal shoe racks from a foreclosed Ohio factory become book shelves. Now, that's some recycling!
