INFURN Responds to "Recycled" Furniture Trend

As Americans become environmentally conscious, many are taking advantage of the new trend of repurposed furniture. As a furniture company that appreciates both the contemporary and historic aspects of furniture, INFURN commends this growing practice.

2013-01-21
PHILADELPHIA, PA, January 21, 2013 (Press-News.org) While many environmentalists have lauded recycling and reducing waste for years, the concept of turning "one man's trash into another man's treasure," has begun to take a whole new turn in the world of consumerism and style. While repurposing used objects is a practice commonly found throughout the arts and crafts community, many consumers are finding that the quality of these items--especially furniture--is exceptional enough to buy. A recent article from Core 77 highlights one Pennsylvania-based company that has repurposed wood from 18th century barns to create sturdy pieces of furniture. The company, known as Furniture from the Barn, has become a favorite among environmentally-concerned consumers as it uses organic materials to treat and paint the wood, rather than commercial products. From a style perspective, INFURN supports the growing trend of repurposing and explains that rustic furniture does not necessarily mean one has to succumb to an antiquated sense of style.

According to the article, the family-run business of Furniture from the Barn not only repurposes wood that would otherwise go to waste, but also provides a material that is often stronger than pieces manufactured today. In the article, company owner Kelly Lee Kelly explains, "It's much harder than today's pine. The boards are wider, and no pesticides or chemical fertilizers were used in those days." For INFURN, these efforts are truly commendable on many different accounts. A recent INFURN press statement comments, "INFURN supports the recycled furniture trend as the result is one that is truly unique and sustainable; furniture that carries a sense of history and individuality."

In respect to history and furniture design, many products offered through INFURN are inspired by mid-century works that can also serve as connections to the past. However, INFURN notes that some consumers may find it difficult to piece repurposed, rustic designs with furniture that offers a more contemporary feel. While it may seem like an opposing concept in design, the company asserts that these repurposed pieces can actually help define a modern-styled room. In its press statement, INFURN concludes, "Recycled pieces of furniture fit really well with design classics that carry a mid-century Modernist appeal. In fact, these contemporary pieces often feature shapes and forms that are greatly inspired by nature."
