Trevor O'Neil's Salvaged Sustainable Designs

Designer Trevor O'Neil took advantage of a building being gutted next door to salvage a bunch of materials into a pretty interesting collection of furniture. Not least of these is this funky, ultra-modern couch made from salvaged cork; we love that it's a sustainable material, and we love that it's already have a previous life as something else. O'Neil is no one trick pony; in addition to his furniture (more pics after the jump), he makes jewelry out of salvaged wood scraps, along with sculptures and paintings. ::Trevor O'Neil via ::Apartment Therapy: Chicago
