Knack Studios

Hello, dream job (it's on my "some-day" list)! Knack Studios specializes in re-purposing found objects, offering an eclectic selection of furnishings such as radically re-surfaced furniture with distinctive hardware, salvaged re-designed lighting fixtures, and unconventional soft goods. Each and every piece you see has been given new life with much detail, passion and creativity. As someone who's obsessed with make-overs of just about any kind, you can imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon Knack! I started doing something similar with a girlfriend a while back, but it ended up taking up too much of my time. I dream of re-vamping tired old furniture like this down the road...maybe when I have a garage and/or working design studio. The sky's the limit when it comes to re-purposing found objects, as you'll see this small selection of their work. You can learn more about Knack by visiting their website, Etsy shop, Lovely Clusters shop, or blog. Enjoy!
