South African designer Nic Kruger is turning flotsam and jetsam into tables and chairs. Years ago, he stumbled upon a wrecked boat, named the Kunene, and fell in love with the patinas of her siding. The moment provided the inspiration for his company, Shipwreck Furniture, which now produces one-of-a-kind furniture pieces out of wood scavenged from old boats. Whether a bench or a table or chair, each piece tells a story about an adventure at sea, and is truly unique. See the full portfolio of work here.
