The Australian furniture maker GHIFY – Gorgeous Home Interiors For You – makes sustainable, handmade home furnishing from reclaimed materials. The pieces featured in the ‘Mint Edition’ line – above and below – are made entirely from scrap hardwood timber salvaged from old Queenslander houses. The pieces – an elegant dressing table and stool, media unit / console and hall table – have angular, minimalist tapered legs, Florentine brass hinges and understated, modern drawer handles.
The pieces are the definition of ‘rustic modern’. Raw materials include salvaged old floorboard, ceiling beams and battens … all given a second life as modern rustic furniture. Each plank is sanded and painted with care to reveal the timber’s inherent, original grain structure, but retains all the historical character – including the original nail holes, knots and imperfections – of the reclaimed timber.
This set is available as individual pieces and also comes in a distressed gray/blue color.
GHIFY ships internationally via Fedex. Find more of their fine handcrafted furniture at the GHIFY Etsy shop.
