Dutch artist Chris Ruhe designs and builds furniture using reclaimed building materials set at radical angles. Whether its a cabinet unit made from old doors, or shelves made from discarded ladders, Ruhe's divergent style comes out in his work.
Reclaimed wood can be left nearly as-is. In this rustic kitchen, the richer, deeper finish remains unadorned except for a good cleaning. Mismatched pieces were used to create the island, too, offering a complement to the brick (also reused).
