Older is better. This is true when it comes to a lot of things, wine, a good pair of jeans, and especially furniture. Fred Stawser and David Smith, have adopted this as their design mantra, selling tables, chairs, lamps and home accessories from the 19th and early 20th centuries. Some of the most innovative and undeniably well made products to ever be produced on American soil were made during the Industrial-era, and its this craftsmanship and solidity of construction that inspired the duo’s company, Strawser & Smith.  Every piece in their collection is constructed by craftsmen using vintage industrial relics and traditional methods and materials. Check out some of these gems for your own place. [Strawser&Smith]
