Waste not, want not: Instead of heading to the lumber yard, more and more furniture designers are looking to the past for their materials. This Reclaimed Wood Kitchen Island, $475, from Herb’s Furnishings is one great example. Handcrafted of 100% reclaimed wood from Baltimore, Md., the island’s frame is crafted from old beams, and its shelves are reclaimed pine paneling. The butcher's block top is made of reclaimed hardwood flooring, which is sealed with food-safe mineral oil and beeswax. The island sits on leveling stems to ensure a flat cutting surface, and it includes a steel bar with S hooks for hanging pots and other utensils.
