Shopping Trip: The Design Pallet is a Don't-Miss-It Source for Sustainable Furnishings
What started a few years ago as a weekend whim-project to repurpose some shipping pallets (result: funky potting benches!) has turned into quite the custom-cool cottage industry for Bruce Hanamurato.
Now the designer/owner of The Design Pallet (Seattle; 206.930.8824) is busy turning locally salvaged lumber into all manner of fine furniture (tables, desks, nightstands) and accents (book ends to candle holders). Just a few of our furniture faves are: the Modern Wood/Steel Desk ($1,900 sale price), made with Bubinga/African rosewood, the Modern Bench ($350), made of red elm, and the Vintage Warehouse Cart Coffee Table ($1,100), made from torched Douglas fir (all shown above). Adored accents include the Modern Desk Organizer ($49; shown below), made from western maple, the Live Edge Wood Bookends ($65), made from red elm, and the Test Tube Spice Rack with Cork Stoppers ($36), available in a variety of woods.
You can browse and buy from its current stockpile, via The Design Pallet's Etsy shop, or dream up your very own creation and have it custom made.
Bonus: Through the end of January, there's a 20 percent-off clearance sale on select small furniture at the Etsy shop. Just use coupon code FURNITURE20.
