Funky Buda Furniture Company

We didn't know they existed until an artist friend from Dallas sent us this link. (Thanks Kimmy Dee)
Ref-Use Furniture
Adam Edwards & Nicholas Petersen dumpster dive to reclaim the wood and make new products....

An Austin American Statesman blog mentions this quote from Edwards...."

“I grew up in a cabinet shop and I noticed that good scraps of wood were thrown away because they were too small to use,” said Adam Edwards of Ref•Use. “So, we decided to see what we could make out of them.”

How cool is that, support a local business and help the environment!

You can find their chairs & flooring at Eco Wise and IF&D in Austin!

We hope more cool artists make Buda their home!
