Los Angeles-based MFEO specializes in creating handmade furniture and home furnishings from reclaimed and salvaged materials. The husband and wife design team’s creations are an expression of their take on sustainability and consumerism – creating designer products from existing, used and vintage components.
These sconce lamps (above – $190 for the pair) are created from reclaimed wood planks that have been affixed with industrial cage lighting fixtures.
The couple’s rustic pendant lamp (below – $245) was created from weathered pieces of Douglas fir barn wood – recycled from board edge cut-offs – that under other circumstances might end up in the waste bin.
The lamp’s slat spaces shed an interesting pattern making the lamp a candidate to be used on the floor as a unique floor lighting sculpture (above).
Many of MFEO’s handmade items can be made to order. These lighting fixtures and more can be found at the weareMFEO web store.
