A few months ago I was introduced to Steve & Suzanne of Relove: Vintage Salvage Stylage, an incredible duo who reclaim, redesign, reuse, repurpose, reyounameit - they do it. Tucked away from a North End street and full of reclaimed lumber and odds and ends from yesteryear is their cozy workshop. Bits and pieces may enter, but the creations that leave are full of love and simply stunning. Pulled from their website;
"We believe every home needs a little style which is exactly what we provide at Relove with our eclectic mix of vintage and upcycled furniture. Each item is sourced for its potential then redesigned and finished to give a new lease on life.
Aside from adding style and character to your home, old furniture given new life has major environmental perks over buying brand new. We apply colours, textures and carpentry skills to Relove furniture that will become part of your home for years to come."
I hope to spend more time with these two - I'm a sucker for details and my afternoon spent in their workshop was far too short. Visit their website (and follow their Twitter feed!) *here*.
