INTERVIEW: Inhabitat Chats with Recycled Wood Designers Scrapile
JILL: Does Bettencourt Green Building Supplies deal with anything other than wood?
BART: We sell finishes, adhesives. We’ll have to see where it goes after that.
CARLOS: We’re looking at everything. We are going to get started on Scrapile wallpaper. I think we just found a source in an email today. Its not really wood, but it looks like wood in a wallpaper.
BART: It will be like the new wood paneling.
JILL: That sounds pretty cool.
CARLOS: We’ll have to see how it goes.
JILL: That funny, when you first mentioned this I was actually imagining you recycling old wallpaper in stripes. I think that would be cool too? So, anyways, you?ve done interiors for restaurants and things like that?
CARLOS. Well, Bart did all the chairs for this organic restaurant in Chelsea.
BART: Yeah, it was for a restaurant called Cookshop. I think Cookshop, or maybe another restaurant by the same owner. The owner came by the Brooklyn Design booth during design week. He was originally going to buy his chairs from Design Within Reach, and he instead ended up buying from us.
JILL: Nice! That’s a coup for you guys.
BART: Yeah, scooped a job from DWR! How often can you beat their price point?
CARLOS. I know man. That was like David and Goliath.
