Illuminating-Repurposed-Vintage-Relics

Scrolling through the work of Benclif Designs is like taking a stroll through some demonic kid’s laboratory. At first it all seems very reminiscent of the work of a wiser Sid from Toy Story. Old toys and appliances deconstructed and rebuilt to serve an entirely different purpose. That’s only your first thought though, your second is, “Holy crap, I want all this stuff.” By taking vintage relics (rotary dial phones, percolators, and much more) and turning them into works of art that provide a bit of light for the far side of your leather sofa, Benclif Designs has got us asking questions like, “Does a vintage Fischer Price toy lamp work in this room?”

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
