The Stephen Kenn inheritance collection is a group of pieces made from up-cycled military materials. Designer Stephen Kenn designed the furniture with a vintage military aesthetic in mind, and the result was a functional and utilitarian set of neutral furniture with a lot of character and history.

The collection uses vintage military tarps from World War, which are secured to the structure of the furniture using leather braces. These leather braces are a spectacular design element. The vintage aesthetic of the collection is evident while also referencing what is popular in contemporary design.

The military green coloring and industrial look of the collection makes for a furniture set that matches most home decors. This collection is versatile and full of history.
