Pernt handmade furniture reclaims fallen trees in the name of art

Christopher Beidel, the artist behind Pernt handmade furniture, creates tailored pieces with the precision of an architect—partly because he was trained as one. Dedicated to smart, earth-friendly design, the Brooklyn resident continues to use his childhood passion for building to create one-of-a-kind pieces for his clients. We’re looking forward to sitting with this designer at BKLYN Designs this weekend to learn more about his ideals on art and his deep commitment to reducing waste. Keep a look out for the Inhabitat team throughout the showcase.

What was meant for destruction, Christopher has developed a craft for turning into functional art. For instance, the designer erected a bench on a slab of cherry wood from a tree felled by a storm. If that doesn’t tickle your sustainable design fancy, the intricacies and details riddled throughout his custom-designed desks, clocks and storage solutions include old-school inlays and naturally stained textures that breathe dedicated craftsmanship. Don't just take our word for it. Ditch your weekend plans and head down to BKLYN Designs to explore more of Christopher’s phenomenal work.
