I was immediately struck by the work of Brooklyn-based designer/woodworker Palo Samko when spotting his furniture at a recent stroll through ABC Carpet & Home. I love the use of recycled and sustainable wood and materials. The pieces have a handmade feel that is sophisticated, innovative and really beautiful. It looks rooted in tradition but is completely modern at the same time. I also took notice of the way the work is photographed. Gorgeous.
