Colonel Furniture

Colonel brings old furniture back to life. Founded in 2010 by Isabelle Gilles and Yann Poncelet, the Paris-based company designs their own collection in collaboration with specialized craftsmen and small wood factories. I like the idea of infusing some of these vintagey, worn pieces in with some hard-lined modern furnishings to create a nice contrast of materials and shapes.
