Brooklyn-based furniture purveyors From the Source recently unveiled a beguiling new range of reclaimed wood pieces at this year's ICFF, and we were instantly drawn to the collection's modern twist on recycled materials. Called the Chiaroscuro collection, the assortment of revamped sustainable furniture is made right out of FTS's Brooklyn warehouse. On top of being a local company, the studio recently received their Forest Stewardship Council certification for the use of salvaged wood.
Using a variety of materials to build their array of designs, the From the Source team will transform old abandoned railroad tracks or iron-wood into a solid chair, or a mobile table on wheels. Exposed to the elements and heavy trains over the years, each of the reclaimed planks is riddled with holes and dark stains which are then embedded in the design.
Most of FTS’s work is constructed in their enormous 35,000 square foot studio in Greenpoint, and then shipped out across the US.
