We spotted these marvelous repurposed stools in the July 2008 issue of House Beautiful. This is one of the more brilliant salvage reuses we've seen in a long while. When folks repurpose things, it can sometimes look a little visually forced. But we think these stools would have been a lovely standalone design, even if they weren't originally used as truck springs. The homeowners found them at... Artefact Design & Salvage in Sonoma, California.
Locally, you could check out Restoration Resources in Boston for architectural and other salvage pieces. (Their website seems to be currently under construction.) What do you think of these stools?
