"I wanted to explore ordinary objects in an extraordinary way," designer John Sorensen-Jolink told us about why he founded furniture design company Coil + Drift two years ago. The Brooklyn-based design company specializes in using reclaimed and FSC-certified woods from all different kinds of sources - from unabashed dumpster-diving to working with contractors to obtain leftover scraps - to create rustic yet modern pieces that celebrate the history of their materials.



Coil+ Drift is also careful to only use environmentally-safe stains and lacquers, many of them made by Sorensen-Jolink in house. Amongst our favorite pieces are the incredibly elegant 'Dusk Coffee Table', shown above, a handsome standing desk and wall-mounted shelving system. If you're a fan of Coil & Drift, don't forget to vote for them to help them win the Inhabitat BKLYN Design Award. Or check them out on show at BKLYN Designs this weekend.
