Found Objects is our curated collection of — you guessed it — found objects.
We wander far and wide gathering antique furniture, accessories, textiles, industrial objects, architectural fragments, and about anything else we feel has a presence, is useful, and is a good value.
To maintain a high level of quality and taste, we make a concerted effort to minimize mass produced merchandise in our dynamic collection, which changes almost daily.
Sometimes the greatest found objects hide in plain sight, and the greatest artwork isn’t the painting…but the frame.
This cart is a perfect example. It was found at auction by our observant friends George and Christi in Smithfield, VA.
While everyone else at the welding shop auction was bidding on the tools, George and Christi fixated on the cart the tools were sitting on. Welders had no interest, but George and Christi knew the cart had great potential out of the workshop and in the house. They bought it, cleaned it up, added the reclaimed wood top, and asked us what we thought of it.
It was a no brainer. We had to have it to sell at Found Objects.
Not the end of the story.
Our passion for old industrial carts is shared with many of our friends, including photographer Chris Crumley. He borrows several of our carts for photo props. This photo is courtesy of Chris. Check out his website and see his fantastic work: www.Chriscrumley.com.
