Reclaimed, Recycled, and Upcycled Art
You may have heard these “buzz words” linked to decorating with character and consciousness. Furnishings crafted from reclaimed materials and repurposed into eye catching décor are highly regarded. Homeowners continue to become more environmentally aware and with that comes an attractiveness in supporting the art of reducing, reusing, and recycling. The end result is creative brilliance that comes with a history and story to tell. Read on for what these buzz words actually mean and how you can incorporate this type of art into your home.
Reclaim \ri-ˈklām\ Verb – To get (a usable material) from materials that have been used before.
Recycle [ rēˈsīkəl ] Verb – To convert (waste) into reusable material.
Upcycle [ ˈəpˌsīkəl ] Verb – Reuse (discarded objects or material) in such a way as to create a product of a higher quality or value than the original.
Alamosa Home is proud to carry Watson & Co’s eclectic Metal Art Collection (in addition to other fun and funky items such as the Calaveras Pillow Rosa Skull, Sartorial Pillow Lucky Jack, and the Relic Typewriter Pillow to name a few). Watson & Co, founded in 1991, is located out of Denver, Colorado. Their Metal Art collection is an enormously successful assemblage of letters and word signs. These signs are rusted, imperfect, bold, and wonderfully raw. Alamosa Home carries a vast selection – everything from Bronze Letters, Tin Signs and Symbols to Drum Metal pieces. Make a statement and tell a story with one of our Watson & Co objects!
