28, 2012 PEVETO Saves Shipping Crates from Landfill, Makes Hip Recycled Furniture in the Process
PEVETO, A Fine Art Resource Management Company, presents the FURM Furniture collection of hip recycled furniture made from repurposed shipping crates – used fine art shipping crates, that otherwise would have gone to a landfill, are transformed into stylish functional furniture.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 20, 2012 – PEVETO's FURM Furniture project began much like the inception of the company, as a shared vision to innovate ways in which the fine art business is conducted. "When we noticed a glut of used crates being thrown away and clients with used crates cluttering their homes, we thought it was the perfect resource to innovate", says owner, Scott Peveto. The project designers, Felipe Contreras and Scott Peveto, Houston's art world insiders, began with bookshelves and filing cabinets, which gave way to an entire suite of furniture – coffee table, side table, club chair and bar cart. The design objective was to add as little in the way of material as possible to achieve a functional and elegant product. The most commonly added materials – a couple of feet of pine 2x2 or 2x4 to elevate the undersides and table tops to desirable heights. Otherwise, the materials are reused from the original crate itself.
