A couple of extra special, dynamite examples of re-use in Austin include this Thelma and Louise style outdoor couch. The attachment of the vintage car doors to a simple re-used lumber settee, is seamless and delightful! You can take it for a spin at the Moontower Saloon down on South Manchaca.
The folks at Vuka Co-op have a great space for learning, connecting, experimenting, networking, and general creativity. These up-ended, rooted chandeliers are all over their space and pretty much made my jaw drop.
They are located at 411 W. Monroe, check out all of their offerings at: www.vukaaustin.com
