Upcycled Military Furniture: Stephen Kenn

LA-based designer Stephen Kenn gives us an inspired take on upcycled furniture with his collection of furnishings made from items found in a military surplus warehouse. The simplistic line of seating is constructed from US military tent half shelters, reproduction WWII-era Swiss mule belts, and welded steel frames that have been rusted to complete the rugged aesthetic. Kenn’s insistence on local manufacturing contributes to the collection’s sustainable footprint. From the welding of the steel frames to the weaving of the webbing, each piece of furniture in the Inheritance Collection is manufactured by nearby factories and workrooms.

Ranging in price from $450-$5,000, a piece from Kenn’s Inheritance Collection is sure to be a conversation starter at the next dinner party. You can see more of Kenn’s process in this video: Stephen Kenn : Inheritance Collection.
