Reclaiming wood from old barns and homes, a Georgia artist, is taking another tack at recycling by making furniture. The patchwork of old wold integrated with modern steel design makes a sturdy piece of furniture. Each is one-of-a-kind and are available in a variety of colors.

Implications - This piece of furniture is one of the many that has followed in the steps of eco-friendly pieces. Electric cars are readily available, but not everyone can afford one, so artworks are now a new way to go green. With artists breathing new life into old material, it'll help bring awareness to the environment in an inspiring creative way. Small businesses in the creative industry can take advantage of this since it's cost-effective.
