This medallion over the dresser was found during a dumpster dive! It "came from a 1930s hotel in Savannah," Joel says. "The developer removed several of these great plaster medallions during the renovation. I am not ashamed to dumpster dive! In college I learned that all it takes to furnish your first place is a good eye (you have to spot the good stuff left by the curbside), good pair of work gloves (ha!) and a friend’s pick up truck!"
The chair and the dresser were both vintage finds from the 1960s.
Thanks so much to Joel Snayd for sitting down with me to chat today. In researching this interview, I have become completely addicted to Rethink Design Studio's blog; it's so well done and inspiring.
