Mod Furniture Helping Kids
This stunning piece of furniture appeared on our FB page, and I quickly learned that it is a product of a program called Out of the Dark. This program takes place in Buckinghamshire, UK, and is part of Steet Dreams, a charity that helps give underprivileged kids a support structure and building blocks toward living positive and productive lives. Out of the Dark recycles, repurposes and revamps salvaged furniture as a means to educate, train and employ young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. [Buy this piece at Etsy]
So, the program is amazing, and they make awesome furniture! I would love to own one of these special pieces! Unfortunately, living in the U.S. isn’t going to get me closer to my dream (right now). But hopefully sharing about Out of the Dark will inspire someone who is closer to get involved!
I love the signature techniques of choosing modern, bright colors and leaving some of the original wood exposed. It really brings the pieces into the 21st century while still retaining their original beautiful design.
If big and bright isn’t your style, the subtle addition of color on this dressing table is really well done. Buy it at Etsy.
