Every great artist eventually feels an urge to experiment with new styles: Van Gogh painted somber still lifes before discovering Impressionism, while Andy Warhol designed album covers before discovering that people in clubs will have sex with you. Branching out (literally!) to improve your digs, Kulin Modern Furniture
Influenced by Scandinavian style from the 50s-60s (who isn't!?), this jewelry designer-turned-sculptor felt the urge to experiment on the furniture side, creating a line of sleek, artistic pieces made from "innovative mixed-materials" (reclaimed wood, tree branches, glass, and metal) that articulate clean lines, modern form, and an "edgy industrial meets soft woodsy" vibe like the lovechild of Mugatu and the Brawny Paper Towel guy. Tables/desks include a wheeled, glass-topped stainless steel dining room table w/ a lower secondary shelf made of three reclaimed white oak boards; a simple black oxide/steel based console table that consists of one aged recycled hemlock barn beam; and a clear anodized aluminum/glass desk whose legs are crisscrossed with birch, oak, and maple tree branches, from which the Daddy Mack could make you (a) Stump, Stump. Other designs include a glass-topped side table w/ thin steel legs on one side and heavy thick recycled oak/chestnut beams on the other; an earthy, steel-based table whose top is supported by ten tree branches; and a square console table that sports two hemlock beams shaped like an "L" offset by two slender rectangular steel bars, but not steely bars, since those just end up reelin' after a couple years.
If you live on Beacon Hill (or your apt just feels like it), KM also crafts smaller pieces like a reclaimed chestnut beam bench; a double-decker, two-tiered side table featuring aluminum tops and mahogany legs; and steel-legged stump stools made from solid white oak tree trunks -- giving you a chance to experiment with a new style called "actually having style".
