I received word of John Reeves's really unique furniture and I thought it was worth sharing. John Reeves is an award-winning UK designer. He does furniture for all occasions and rooms, even outdoor pieces. REEVESdesign also includes the new Cast Aluminum Series 1 - which I think would be a good option for those of you who want something that no one else in the neighborhood has.
Here's some cool information about the designer:
"John Reeves, founder of a small furniture manufacturing company that bears his name, dealt with the concerns of poor offshore working conditions by moving to Vietnam and starting a fabrication shop in person, building some fantastic, durable furniture along the way. The chairs, tables and benches he produces with his Vietnamese co-workers are cast in aluminum sourced from recycled engine blocks and conduit, and the results are curvaceous, solid and thoroughly modern."
So, I'm really happy to hear that John promotes proper working conditions and the use of recycled materials. Without further ado, his work:
I think the pieces above are really cool. They have an organic, earthy look, but are modern and cast aluminum!
gotta love this bench
I also really like this console - I think it would be really striking in a room with pieces in different styles.
