Furniture Maker - Iannone Design

Iannone Design

“It's great to see wood reclaimed from places and things I would have never even thought about. I really enjoy seeing where the wood originates and the uniqueness that comes with that..."

Michael Iannone has been designing and building furniture for over 19 years. He specializes in high quality modern furniture with a strong focus on original design and the use of sustainable materials.

.

Iannone Design mixes sustainable materials with uncluttered, mid-century lines and nature-inspired graphics. The firm wasn't founded on sustainability, but after a few years watching “eco-friendly pieces” attract greater sales, Iannone made it core to his mission. "A lot of sustainable materials are really beautiful,” says Iannone, “like reclaimed wood, kirei [pressed boards made from stalks of sorghum] and bamboo plywood. Beauty is a big factor, too."

.

Iannone Design is located in Elmer, New Jersey (USA).

.

"The most eco-friendly, sustainable thing I can do is create something timeless. I hope my furniture will be passed down from generation to generation."

Among a range of materials, Michael works with reclaimed wood -- such as Chestnut beams from an old barn or salvaged White Oak boards from a raceway destroyed by a fire.

Michael builds the colorful Rewreck Sideboard, pictured here, in collaboration with the Weld House (Phoenix, Arizona), which supplies the junkyard auto metal.
