No need to throw away those old chairs in the garage. How about giving them a new lease on life by transforming them into a neat looking bench, just like the Brooklyn-based furniture company 31 & Change did? They create one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture with a twist, a wink and a smile in mind. Each of their creations is hand-crafted with American hardwoods and built in their Brooklyn studios. Founder Kurt Lenard's graphic design background influences the colorful nature of their work. I love how their pieces have their own unique graphic expression, whether seen through the wood grain, the juxtaposition of color or the combination of materials. Brilliant!
