The great thing about Sweden is its ability to churn out affordably stylish, lower quality products, like IKEA, H&M, and Dolph Lundgren. Offering a new upscale spin on at least the furniture, Barrelly Made It.
The brainchild of a famed Swedish artist/craftsman and his SoCal team, BMI's an artistic line of high-quality 99% recycled furnishings hand crafted entirely out of re-purposed French oak wine barrels -- but unlike their country of origin, these don't necessarily suck at war. Earth-friendly essentials include the BMI signature Red Wine lounge chair that's made from one single barrel (which's been cleaned, cut, and sanded) and strategically uses the wood's natural curves; an accompanying ottoman that's ergonomically designed to flow from the chair as if connected; and a stocky round end table, with a top that's the barrel's actual lid, but not the barrel's actual Lids, which is unfortunate because those places have the best three-visor-for-$30 deals ever. There's also a skillfully constructed, 3ft wide Asian-influenced concave bench, and a set of remarkably comfortable three-legged bar stools that have all been numbered and signed, giving them a huge leg up on Logan Mankins.
BMI's also branching out into slightly more portable pieces like wine racks shaped as Chinese Pagodas, chess sets with hand-carved pieces, and even a coming-soon selection of sushi trays, which don't come painted, since Dolph insists, "if he dyes, he dies".
