one person’s trash is this couple’s treasure.


wary-meyers are two of my biggest heroes in the vast world of design. i love, what i think, is their lack of fear. they are just simply fearless when it comes to taking what they, say, perhaps found in a dumpster, giving it a good cleaning, some extra loving care and creating, or re-creating a thing of utterly unique beauty. the duo have a new DIY book out appropriately entitled ‘tossed and found’ and i couldn’t be more excited about it. they sent me a copy and a very nice note (no doubt having seen me gush on and on about the two talents for so long now) and i’m so excited to share it with you.


design team linda (formerly wary – they are now married) and john meyers’ new book ‘tossed and found – unconventional design from cast-offs’ is about ‘reducing, reusing recycling’, anything and everything — from reclaimed wood, to old furniture and lighting — all with detailed drawings and easy how-to instructions included. the team is in my eyes pretty much the expert extraordinaries of re-purposed home furnishings and decor, and in their new book they’ll teach you quite simply how to become their adoring and learned subjects. thanks for sharing your wisdom, ingenuity and creativity, linda and john — i am most happy to share ‘tossed and found’ with the readers. sorry, gushing, yet again. be sure and check out their website for more cool interiors.
