This weekend at Austin's popular Maker Faire craft festival we had the pleasure of observing all sorts of wonderful handmade items, but there was one creative crafter that caught our attention with their recycled furniture design. More after the jump!
It's no doubt Austin is a bike town. It was only time that a cycle lover decided to do something about all the parts that die after so many miles. Brad Rollans of Bicycle Graveyard takes the parts of our favorite two-wheel transportation and makes them into stunning items of home decor, like Bicycle Cassette Clocks, Bicycle Wall Lamps, Bicycle Coffee Tables or Bicycle Fork Lamps. Memorable tributes to these simple machines that take us where we want to go, this furniture definitely embodies the spirit of Austin!
What do you think about reusing old bicycle parts to create home furnishings? Tacky or gorgeous? Let us know!
