Purpose Restoration, a Los Angeles-based collective dedicated to “the craft of furniture restoration and reinvention,” is in the business of transforming busted-up, dust-collecting, and dump-prone furnishings into new objects that are both environmentally sustainable and eye-catching.
The eco-guided handiwork of Purpose Restoration — a Green America-certified business, by the way — doesn’t tread into Hardy territory but some pieces, in my opinion, are a bit too much although still certainly impressive in their artistry. Perhaps it's just a matter of taste. Below, I’ve picked out my favorite PR furniture rescue-and-revamp jobs: the Folded Hands Dresser, the Butcher (my favorite … an old TV stand transformed into a wheeled kitchen cart), and the Shadow Dresser.
