A talented ‘scrapper’ turns discards into statement pieces.
When we were building our house I spent a good deal of time at salvage yards in search of reclaimed pieces for our house. So I have a special fondness for furniture made by reclaim artist Rupert Blanchard. A former set designer, Blanchard scours his London neighborhood for discarded objects with character that can be repurposed. For me, his cabinets crafted from odd bits of signage are noteworthy because they speak to us in two ways – with the words and with the spirit of reshaping something discarded into art for the home.
