Ken Fulk’s closet in November issue of Architectural Digest is the epitome of rich and eclectic design. He goes against the grain by utilizing antique bookcases and a brass clothing rack to replace the all to common closet kits of today. He embraces English details with a large antique box on stand hidden behind an unusual antler upholstered chair, these being reminiscent of the once popular royal hunts. So why not defy the expected and harness the old world culture by embracing antique furniture in order to diversify your own closet?

The Work Bench

5-workbenches

The work bench, a worn down piece that has stood the test of time in an artisans or craftsmen workroom. However with evolving of style and interior design, work benches have found a new place for the home. Tools have changed, from wrenches and saws, to glasses and curated lamps or accessories. They have found a new home either in a den as a liquor bar, or in a kitchen. Antique work benches bring so much charm to a room, showing that they can stand a beating and still bring a new look to a room.
