When one goes into re: design, a brand-new repurposed, modern-day and classic furniture store in Southold, the eye is right away drawn to a big galvanized steel shelf unit near the entrance.
The product, which sits atop spindly metal legs and has a wooden tabletop, is a striking furniture with piece modern dining sets. It’s likewise simply one example of Rory Klinge’s workmanship.
We did an estate buyout and that was in the garage, Klinge stated throughout an interview in the new Main Road space. My son picked up the hairpin legs someplace, which were perfect, and I had this old shuffleboard floor. The pieces were just suggested to be together.
Klinge, who resides in Greenport, is a master repurpose. When he isn’t producing new furniture pieces from old products, he and his other half, Carol Lindley, are pickers, or individuals who buy old, retro or vintage items and re-sell them. The couple will open their own store, re: design, in Southold on Saturday.
We’re extremely eclectic in the way we select. It’s a little bit of everything, because if you’re purely one thing, then your audience is more limited.
