Looking for some new furniture?
Does this sound familiar... you get home from a long road ride, maybe even an epic mt bike ride that has left your muscles screaming to be left alone. All you want to do is just want to kick your feet up and relax. But you take a look around and everything in your home has had your feeted "kicked up" on it a few too many times. Dude, you need new furniture! Well, if you think it may be time to throw out the old and bring in the new, check out www.bikefurniture.com. You live and breath bicycles, right? So why not express that through your home decor?
Bike Furniture Design is a design and manufacturing studio specializing in contemporary, modern furniture made primarily from recycled steel and aluminum bicycle rims, handlebars, and frames.
Working within the vernacular of classic modern furniture design, BFD founder Andy Gregg has continued to refine this comfortable and durable furniture since 1990.
Since the original Bike Chair, Bike Furniture Designs have grown to include a wide-ranging collection of high-quality tables, bar stools, loveseats, and more chairs. Some designs, in addition to utilizing the bicycle, also utilize components from other transportation industries.
These designs use train and automobile windows for tabletops, and surplus automotive seat-belt webbing for seating upholstery. Bike Furniture upholstery options are unlimited. Some options include leather, rubber, cork, clear and colored acrylic, and vinyl.
Bike Furniture Design World Headquarters is located in the mountain biking, and nordic skiing mecca Marquette, Michigan, on the shores of Lake Superior.
