Did you guess this chair was first an old bourbon barrel?? If you’re anything like me and want to combine your love affair of modern contemporary home furnishings with a desire to be green, you should definitely check out Uhuru (Pronounced: oo-hoo-roo) in Red Hook, Brooklyn – yes in NY!! I came across this place a while ago. Uhuru is a small, design build furniture company that uses materials that have been reclaimed, recycled, re-purposed, reused, or otherwise rejected from their original function. Uhuru has recently been named one of Greenopia’s Distinguished sustainable companies for New York City for 2008-2009.
