If you’ve ever shuddered at the thought of a mass-produced (ahem, IKEA) lamp, Nathan feels you. In fact, when he found himself in an empty new apartment with few choices, he took to crafting his own home goods. Then he couldn’t stop—and had more repurposed vintage treasures than he could possibly fit in the place. The process is as such: he hunts down cool industrial/vintage items that just scream at him to be made into something else. He finds hardware that matches the era of the original item. He turns it into a unique one-of-a-kind creation that you 100% won’t find (or even imagine) anywhere else.
