Every time I’m having a bout of writers’ block or feeling at all uninspired, all it takes it one visit to Etsy.com to turn me around. During my last visit, on a day when I was feeling particularly “blah”, I discovered Jalex Studios, and boy did it put a smile on my face!
Jalex Studios recycled everyday objects into truly inspired pieces of home decor, from gorgeous lamps and vases to large-scale art pieces made of recycled doors. The Jenga-like Modern Lamp, shown above at left, is made of a combination of recycled wooden window brackets with reclaimed Bruce wood flooring for the inserts. The Eco-Smooth vase at right, also made of recycled and reclaimed materials, has a super-contemporary Asian flair that would be the perfect home for a group of bamboo shoots.
I loved Jalex Studios’ handiwork so much that I couldn’t pick just one product to feature. Take a look at their work and you’ll understand why!
Why It’s Green:
- All of Jalex Studios pieces are made from recycled, reclaimed and found materials, from wooden doors to old flooring and window brackets.
