Reclaimed and redesigned – beautifully.

With the entire world going green, antique and reclaimed wood products are EVERYWHERE. Not only are they hot, but they have that ever-desirable traditional look with a contemporary flair. In my search for products to complete the look, I found this GORGEOUS Water Tower lounge chair by Bellboy. It’s called the Water Tower chair because it is made from the reclaimed timbers of a New York City water tower; as such, it’s nearly one-of-a-kind and will make you a mere $14, 200 lighter in the pocket. The unique variations in the wood stand out in any interior space and make a good contrast against neutrals – like the popular grey color palette – or pops of color – wouldn’t it look just fabulous on a tribal rug?
