If there’s one thing we love a tad bit more than awesome modern design it’s awesome modern design made with reclaimed materials. It’s just impressive when you can take something that used to be something else and still see the potential in it (as opposed to just seeing potential in a raw, blank canvas material). We’ve come across The Design Pallet, a Seattle-based company grabbing old, on-its-way-to-the-landfill materials to create simple, stylish, retro-inspired furniture pieces modern lovers are sure to adore:

“Whenever possible we use locally salvaged and reclaimed lumber, and each piece is custom designed to exist in harmony with the space it is destined for. All of our Home Decor items are crafted from “off cuts” of previous projects and saved from the waste pile. The Design Pallet was born from the idea that beautiful, sustainable, custom furniture can be affordable. The project began with a simple pallet potting bench, and has grown into a vibrant and sustainable business serving Seattle and the Pacific Northwest.”

“We encourage clients to consider reclaimed and local lumber so that the furniture we build for them can become a part of their home in the spirit of sustainability and environmental stewardship. Some of our favorite projects have been built with lumber that would have otherwise been burned, chipped, or bound for a landfill. We give that wood a second life as a table, desk, cabinet, headboard, or night stand.” More.
