For the 3rd consecutive year Luis Caicedo is proud to participate in Design on a Dime, benefiting housing Works.
This year’s vignette was about reading and recycling. The green walls color was chosen to create a vibrant background. Modern custom pieces -based on books or papers were created to compliments a collection of vintage objects and unique artwork.
To compliment the vintage distressed wood and woven cane chairs, a very whimsical “pile of newspapers” table created. It took many days to hand-cut and weave the base. All the recycled newspaper came from 9th avenue between 42nd and 57th street in Manhattan. The glass top table was placed on an electric blue cow hide donated by Cow Blu.
The very clever custom zig-zag woven aluminum and wood hinged console can be modified to your specific need by changing the position of the screws and is available from Luis Caicedo.
The artwork was made from vintage pieces of various origins put together. The back lady comes from Chicago, while the front lady was found near times square few weeks ago. The mid-century coat hangers are a very clever way to display the altered paintings.
The huge wall unit was created by recycling these huge book back that were used during fashion week last year. To create a balance between quirky and luxurious, silk and linen were used to upholster the pieces.
Gold leaf vintage wall sconces add a touch of glam against the walls.
