I recently headed out to Jackson Heights, Queens to stop in on my pals Robert and Fabian who've worked wonders on discarded objects and turned them into provocative home accessories.This gigantic key was found lying on the street in the East Village. They tossed the old locksmith sign into their car, carted it back home and leaned it in the entry area of their apartment.
Here's literally a piece of trash that was transformed into a geometric objet d'art trouvé. We found this cut-up slab of metal together protruding from a dumpster of a construction site was right next to their Miami apartment. Look at the image closely and you'll note a bit of the metal track from an amazing, custom-made metal shelving unit that was salvaged from a clothing shop on South Beach.
And finally, the head from a Roman bust adds intrigue to an already appealing table setting. He looks completely at ease among the elegantly mismatched candlesticks and casual sprays of pink and white orchids.
