The nautical theme gets a new look - and a new use! - with this sustainable Shipwood furniture, made of recycled ships! Offering an interesting contrasting combo of clean, high-gloss white exteriors and dark, weather-beaten wood salvaged from traditional Chinese fishing and river boats, the furniture artfully blends old and new seamlessly. Every imperfection is not only shown, but embraced, giving these pieces their distinctive appeal. The configurable collection includes sideboards, low and high cabinets, chairs, benches, and a really cool dark bookcase with an open back and slanting, slatted shelf dividers. Designed by LDK, each Shipwood furniture piece includes a golden plaque indicating the age and origin of the wood used to its creation. More details are available by visiting Fashion For Home.
