Purpose Restoration gives furniture a 2nd life
Despite all our green material options these days, from FSC-certified wood to agricultural byproduct panels, low- and no-VOC paints, etc, there’s something honest and uber-green about simply making the old and discarded beautiful again. Case in point, Jason Fox’s Culver City-based Purpose Restoration, a troupe of designers, carpenters, and other craftsmen who do more than just repainting, taking old furniture to a beautifully graphic level. The Pratt graduate set up shop in 2009 and has since worked on tons of restoration projects. In some cases, the client provides the piece of furniture; in others, Jason finds it himself. The restoration process might include sanding, detailing, painting, stenciling, finishing, and more. The result is a one-of-a-kind piece that is an instant heirloom, reflecting the character and stories of the person owning it. Check out his full collection of work here.
