Kurt Lenard's one-of-a-kind pieces are both
artistic and functional.

Reclaimed Furniture

"One-of-a-kind" best describes the furniture pieces from Kurt Lenard, an advertising-executive-turned-furniture-designer who owns 31 & Change Furniture Co. in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Lenard's creations are a combination of flea-market finds, natural materials, industrial components and eye-popping colorful accents. He especially likes using reclaimed items from bygone eras. His pieces include occasional tables, benches, clocks and coat racks, all with a "twist."

While his pieces are very artistic, "They don't belong in a gallery but in a house," he states. "I don't want to make anything that you look at but don't use. That's definitely not my world."

The popularity of Lenard's pieces might have a lot to do with the way Lenard artfully puts together polar-opposite concepts. His work is both retro and modern, organic and industrial, urban and rustic.
