Gallery: Stephen Kenn Repurposes WWII Fabrics Into Rugged Furniture

 

Soldiers who fought in WWII were supplied some of the toughest, heartiest, and longest-lasting textiles of the era. Now considered antiques, the fabrics have stood the test of time and have found their way back into use as clothing and upholstery. The Inheritance Collection by Stephen Kenn combines steel welded frames with custom webbing belts, leather straps, and repurposed WWII fabrics. The simple, clean lines of the rusted and clear-coated metal lay a sturdy foundation for the soft Swiss mule belts and army-green cloth. Each piece is one-of-a-kind, and they range from $450 – $5,000.
