Furniture full of booze and fast cars

A table from Milwaukee Modern

Handcrafted by a team that enjoys "upcycling crap into useful, extraordinarily beautiful objects", Milwaukee Modern's a collection of artistically constructed tables and housewares literally covered in history, as they're bedecked in themed ephemera like '60s Hot Rod magazines and old-school liquor labels.Furniture ranges from side, coffee & dining tables, to wall mirrors and coat racks, each of which're pieced together from slabs of old wood repurposed from vintage cabinetry, dressers, soda/booze crates, and flooring. Then, they're adorned with elements related to their theme, e.g., the Booze table's got whiskey labels and flattened beer cans, the Harley table has Harley-Davidson catalog cutouts, and the Coke table's embellished with images related to Bogota the soda.And, if you hate furniture, they also have a selection of large portraits made by intentionally rusting antique car hoods, including an image of Che Guevara on a '62 Chevy Nova's, and Abe Lincoln on a him Town Car and Continental.
