For this coffee table, Jupiter combined the Douglas-fir ceiling joists of a 1920s Long Island airplane hangar and steel plumbing pipes. ($1,750)
A former water tower on the Upper West Side provided enough reclaimed ancient redwood to create this media console ($4,000). The wood is so scarce, it's not even available for commercial use anymore.
Not your average coffee table, this legless piece is the product of a rare 500-year-old elm tree that toppled in Hurricane Irene. ($4,500)
Sewing enthusiasts: This dining table (made of the same redwood as the media console) sits atop the repurposed legs of an industrial-era Singer sewing machine. ($4,700)
To state the obvious, we?re a little slim on personal space around here. So when it comes to decorating our scaled-down real estate, each piece better count.
Stop settling for big-box-store furniture and instead look for designs that tell a story--like those from the Dumbo furniture maker Mark Jupiter.
With woodworking in his blood (he?s a fourth-generation New York builder), Jupiter recently opened his own studio and showroom in the famously craftsy Brooklyn neighborhood, and we?re seriously impressed with the output so far.
Everything is handmade right in the Plymouth Street shop and uses local, reclaimed materials. For example, a legless coffee table came from an upstate elm that toppled in Hurricane Irene ($4,500). A rare redwood media console was once an Upper West Side water tower ($4,000). And our personal favorite piece, a pipe-legged coffee table, was previously the ceiling joists of a 1920s airplane hangar in Long Island ($1,750).
Should you be in the market for something more customized to your space--say, a headboard or an armoire--Jupiter will gladly work with you on a bespoke piece, even offering a preliminary 3-D rendering and progress visits so you can check in on your new favorite conversation-starter.
