Husband and Wife team Margaux and Walter Kent are the owners of Peg and Awl a wonderful little shop that uses reclaimed materials to create treasures for the home. Their trio of chalkboard tablets is my favorite. The perfect list-sized tablet will replace any number of scraps on desktops, refrigerators or bedside tables. They are made from reclaimed oak, the bleachers from Liberty Highschool built in 1918 Philadelphia, reclaimed black leather (WWII Spats, WWII Gun Holster, Early 1900′s purse etc) chalkboard paint and a Koh-I-Noor chalk pencil. It’s been a while since I have gotten to say… everything that is old is new again. Shake it Peg and Awl.
Upcycled KOZO lamps are made by a 7-member collective called DEMO Design Clinic. Each lamp is built with old plumbing parts, and then a faucet spigot handle is transformed into an on/off switch. The label currently has nine designs available in their Etsy shop all running around $200 …
“The materials are left raw and authentic as possible, aging in their own unique way, with rusty edges and the marks from the hand tools that were used in the assembly process” Not only does Demo Design Clinic know how to upcycle like superstars, they sure know how to shake it.
