Here's repurposed office furniture that architects and industrial-style aficionados alike will surely appreciate: a coffee table by Los Angeles-based REHAB Vintage made from an old flat file - a set of shallow, steel drawers used to store full-size architectural drawings that can still be found in some offices - now rescued for the limelight of the living room.
Formerly called Sonrisa Furniture, REHAB Vintage's impressive line of one-of-a-kind accessories, furniture and art pieces run the gamut from salvaged steel desks, steel basket gym lockers reclaimed from schools, signage, stainless steel medical instruments to more unique finds like a vintage propeller, silver ocean globes and jungle air roots. Many of their pieces undergo a process of "stripping the old finish and restoring the metal to reveal the streamline curves and hidden beauty of the mid-century steel office furniture." It's pricey, but even browsing their website can lend a lot of inspiration to any dedicated DIYer.
