In With the Old

The New Year presents a chance for reformation. That same journey to renewal serves as inspiration for these three Bay Area businesses.



1. Off the Rails We all love looking at the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, and we wanted to remind you that you can bring a piece of it home with you. Golden Gate Design and Furniture Co. creates tables, headboards and more from portions of the original 1930s pedestrian handrail, which was updated in 1993. goldengatefurniture.com

2. See the Light Mill Valley’s Michelle Bevilacqua and Robert Alan Clink of Revelation frequent auctions across the country and antique shops around the world in search of unique finds, which are either refurbished completely (Clink crafts lighting fixtures from found objects) or simply cleaned up and curated for a more modern space. therevelationcompanies.com

3. Fire Sale What happens when you put decommissioned fire hoses from U.S. fire departments in the hands of East Bay designers and artisans? The answer is some seriously cool stuff. Oxgut Hose Company offers courageous designs all crafted from this unique and durable medium.
