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!
This eco-chic shipwreck material of reclaimed boat wood has been artistically repurposed into a variety of colorful furniture including benches ,tables, mirrors to Mid-Century Modern style sideboards and chairs. After colorful old fishing boats and buildings have become unusable, old or destroyed by tsunami weather , artisans have successfully reused the material to create beautiful sturdy furniture and art !
The original painted wood remnants are transformed showing off the subtle splash’s of color mixed with the earthy wood underlying tones. These special one of a kind pieces are unique and each is different with a history behind them.
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.
These amazing one-of-a-kind pieces can be found at Design MIX Furniture, and no two are exactly alike. Each piece is a past unique life and has become a unique piece adding air of adventure and character to your home or garden.
