A Shipwreck in your House ?

Beauty can be found everywhere you look…. art, nature, people, words, and even in unsuspecting places, like salvaged materials.

At Design MIX Furniture we love pieces that are recycled from unique materials that have had former lives…… such as Indonesian fishing boats!

Nature if often beautiful, but sometimes chaos results. After the Tsunami many fishing boats washed ashore. Instead of filling junk yards or burning the destruction, the  beautiful painted wood was reclaimed and salvaged for unique furniture pieces.

Resourceful and Beautiful  !

 Often after many journeys the joints on old fishing boats weakens, but the wood remains strong. Before clever craftsman came along with their eco-chic furniture ideas the wreckage was turned into firewood. Instead of cutting down trees to source wood it is beneficial to both the fisherman and the craftsman for them to sell the old fishing boats to be repurposed to a new life as an eco-chic furniture piece.
