Neat stuff from old stuff

On Monday, the kids over at Apartment Therapy ran a quickie story about a New York based artist, lighting designer and furniture maker named Rodney Allen Trice. Trice owns and operates a studio called T.O.M.T. and T.O.M.T. devotes itself to finding new household uses for discarded household items. Here are some highlights:




A ceiling light made from paper cocktail umbrellas.







A chandelier made from glass punch cups and the copper tubing from an old refrigerator.







A ceiling fixture made from old kitchen canisters







A table made from crutches and steel wire







This is a riot! A cocktail cart made from a walker the artist dubs "The Johnny Walker."







End tables made from old luggage




This stuff's clever and attractive. It's a great combination. Check out the rest of his collection at his website here.
