When we sleep at night and dream of the home we'd like to live in one day, it looks a lot like the photos on the Alabama Chanin website. Rusty, magical, comfortable, warm. Natalie "Alabama" Chanin is the designer behind all of the amazing furnishings, jewelry, and clothes available at Alabama Chanin. And, judging by the photos, she seems uniquely adept at giving new life to salvaged pieces while preserving their individual character. The furnishing look a little rough, but that's part of the charm -- everything is handmade using a mixture of new, organic, and recycled materials, by Alabama artisans, right here in the U.S.
We're totally infatuated with Natalie's tie chairs, vintage quilts, and beautifully surreal chandeliers. See more of what Alabama Chanin has to offer here . All of the furnishings are beyond our budget, but the photos are inspirational -- we wonder which of these things we could attempt to make on our own? When we're feeling particularly ambitious, a tie-chair knock-off might be our first attempt! Related posts: • How To: Find Salvaged Materials • Rejuvenation Images: Via Alabama Chanin
