Guilt Free: Salvaged Patio Furniture with Style

Julie Carlson August 16, 2013

Founded by Gloria Margenat in Barcelona in 2008, Arxe is a design studio focused on creating furniture and one-of-a-kind textiles for the home from salvaged industrial materials. The principals “search across Europe to find antique furniture and old industrial materials–wood, leather, iron, steel, and textiles”–which they bring back to their warehouse in Catalonia to be refashioned into one-off or limited edition pieces. We’re particularly fond of the patio furniture.

To see more of the studio’s work, go to Arxe; a small selection of work is offered at the Woki Organic Market in Sant Cugat del Vallí¨s, Spain.

Above: Each piece of furniture is one-of-a-kind and made by hand.
