One Person's Trash: This Brooklynite Built an Impressive Furniture Collection from Abandoned Items


Resident Owen Wright collaborated with designer Adam Davidson on this 1,000-square-foot Brooklyn apartment.

"I’m not trying to hide anything.
One of Owen’s many hobbies is watercolor painting; the black and white painting seen here is one of his own.
Woodworking is another of Owen's hobbies and his bedroom features a bed and closet he designed and built himself.
The kitchen is Owen’s favorite room thanks to its ample sunlight light: about 60 linear feet of floor-to-ceiling...
Owen also constructed this teak workbench and desk himself.
