Here’s Where You Can Find One-of-a-Kind Furniture Pieces Upcycled from Old, Broken Items
This local shop is making beautiful creations from discarded things.
For many, broken items are often considered unusable, but if you’re familiar with kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing shattered pottery with gold as a reminder that something can be more beautiful after being broken, then you know that with a bit of creativity, the opposite is actually true.
And while the folks behind Resurrection Furniture and Found Objects Gallery don’t exactly practice kintsugi, the idea behind their pieces are the same: they turn discarded items into something new. As their website attests, “We see dead objects. We revive them.”
If you’re looking for unique pieces that will definitely make a statement, then browse through their shop. They have everything from cabinets to coat racks, to found art. Their products are a bit on the pricier side, but remember that these are one-of-a-kind and are works of art themselves.

They also do refurbishing in case you want to breathe new life to furniture you already own.
Ressurrection is running a sale until June 30, so if you want to score an upcycled piece, head on to their website to see the list. For purchases and other inquiries, message them via Instagram, or send them an email at [email protected].
Happy (furniture) hunting!
