This shipping crate furniture called Krate, by Karpenter, is some of the nicest recycled furniture we’ve seen. Of course, Karpenter is the King of recyclables – check out their recycled teak wood furniture that we wrote about some time ago. And now, Krate has arrived. Made 100% FSC certified reclaimed mixed wood, you know you’re helping the environment when you choose this collection. Karpenter, of course, is one of the most environmentally responsible furniture manufacturers in the world. And they haven’t disappointed with Krate. The line brings to mind the docks, and crates being loaded onto ships. Destined for faraway, exotic locations. And once you’ve chosen your furniture, think of the fun you can have imagining where it has been, what it has held. Perhaps fabrics and ribbons from the Silk Road? Spices from the Far East? Furniture with a past – and a clear future.
