American Furnishings

While searching the internet for remodeling/design ideas I came across American Furnishing and put it on my list of places to visit.  The retail store is located in Columbus so we stopped by on our way home from Hocking Hills. It was worth the stop.  Their pieces are found in foundries, barns and factories and repurposed into furniture within 10 Ohio facilities.  Checkout their philosophy here.

Overall it was too pricey for our remodeling budget, but was still fun to look nonetheless. Some of the pieces inspired us to look for similar items that fit our budget.  For example, there was a really rustic set of old lockers that I could picture in our breezeway for storage.  We’ve since found a couple school auctions in our area and plan on trying to find a similar set at a fraction of the cost.  IMG_1337
The Hoover Cabinet, Hook Rack and French Mattress Chaise were three of my favorites.
Kent and I both really liked the component tables too.

These coffee bags are produced from recycled coffee bean bags and retail for $ bags
Next time your in Columbus stop by and check them out at 2017 Polaris Parkway. Find details and store hours here.  You can also check out the American Furnishings blog called Betty The Crow.
