Once rejected, now refined..what is it?

Did you guess this chair was first an old bourbon barrel?? If you’re anything like me and want to combine your love affair of modern contemporary home furnishings with a desire to be green, you should definitely check out  Uhuru (Pronounced: oo-hoo-roo) in Red Hook, Brooklyn – yes in NY!! I came across this place a while ago. Uhuru is a small, design build furniture company that uses materials that have been reclaimed, recycled, re-purposed, reused, or otherwise rejected from their original function. Uhuru has recently been named one of Greenopia’s Distinguished sustainable companies for New York City for 2008-2009.
