Makers of the Famed “Floyd Leg” Expand Product Line

Disclosure: We’ll get a small commission if you buy through the links in this post. Please do!With the popularity of tiny houses and small-space living, an invention that allows you to make a table disappear was sure to be a hit. That’s what the folks from Floyd accomplished several years ago with the introduction of the Floyd Leg.
We bought a set of coffee table height legs at the time, rounded up some teakwood from a crumbling bench and Voila! A lovely modern piece.   Depending on the top you use, you can stow it away, use it as a piece of wall art, etc., so it allows your creative side to shine through.
So what’s new from Floyd?  Well, check out the Floyd Platform Bed. It’s a similar concept to the table, but results in a minimalist sleeping environment.The new Floyd Coat Rack is capable of holding up to 25 lbs of stuff. Use your imagination – this is a utility piece and you can hang a lamp on it if you are so inclined.We’ve also purchased the taller table legs and stored them away until our planned down-sizing. We love the fact that the items are made in America, are minimalist and super functional.

Modern Furniture From Vintage Wood: Made in USA

If you’re one of those people who says they don’t like modern furniture because it’s too “cold” or “sterile,” check this out! These wonderful items use wood reclaimed from century-old razed buildings. They have the clean lines of modern design, AND the warmth of old wood. Regards, Kathy.
