Parsons School of Design alumnus with a BFA in fashion, who has worked in the menswear industry for several years. Past lives have been in the East Village and Lower East Side of Manhattan; more recently transplanted to Harlem. Currently living in a 1907 "French flat," an Edwardian era middle-class apartment.
Apartment Therapy just posted a story on a couple of renters in Spanish Harlem that decorated their apartment with furniture and art on a budget. That massive yellow origami sculpture is made of poster board and staples which costed just $5 for supplies. The rest of the stuff like the table is made of reclaimed church floor planks and the only other tool used for the project was a drill. Bookshelves in the background are all constructed of pipes from the Home Depot and lumberyard wood. We're not sure if these guys are going into the reclaimed furniture business but it sure looks like there might be a future business for them to explore after having this media exposure: LINK.
