Hey all-

We’re getting ready to launch our new website soon which is why we haven’t been posting here as much. Thanks for bearing with us and feel free to let us know what you think about the redesign (all in wordpress, of course!)

Thanks for reading and we’ll let you know when the new site is up and running.

Cheers-

Kate & Craig

These small tables pack a big literary punch! The man-made, disciplined text contrasts with the natural form of the mountains and talks about entropy, or the idea that organized things tend to want to fall into a disorganized state. You can pick these up at modern coop to help get yourself organized (ha ha).

Great job on the photos Mike!

Were your spider senses tingling? This intricate steel base and reclaimed wood table top with a criss-cross inlay add some amazing detail and texture to this office space. Even if you’re not a fan of spiders, don’t be scared of this webbed steel table!

You may have seen it if you live in Chicago, but you’ve probably never seen it on a credenza! This piece features spliced graphics of the Chinatown lift bridge. It’s one of the most iconic bridges in the city and now, in your living room.

Check it out in person at Modern Cooperative!

This hand painted credenza is about as punk-rock as you can get. Refinished, then defaced with a dripped stalactites clinging from the pulls, it’s sure to be a conversation piece wherever you decide to place it. Punk rock goes with everything.

Available at Modern Cooperative.

This cart is not for the faint of heart (or style). The angular edges of the industrial welding cart were picked up in the detailing of the reclaimed wood/resin top as well as the bottom shelves. The linear white & wood counter design looks great under almost every liquor bottle.

This desk is a great (reclaimed wood and lacquered steel) addition to any workspace. Repurposed index card organizers were outfitted with wood handles and used for drawers. It’s simple, it goes with everything.  (Re)claim it for yourself!

Even though the natural habit of things is to fall into a disorganized state, you can break the rule with this handy cart! That’s right… a heavy reclaimed butcher block top with closed storage for pots, pans, records, or whatever you don’t want to see on the bottom! Pick it up at Modern Coop.

Thanks, Mike, once again, for the pics!

This fabulous office is that of one of our favorite clients, Telos. Their fantastic style and eclectic mix of old and new go perfectly with the reclaimed wood and steel countertop we designed and made to fit over a standard cabinet box.

all our thanks to Mike at fadeoutfoto for the pics!
