Contemporary Tables with Skate Decks by Janie BelcourtJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 03 Aug 2011
We recently ran across Janie Belcourt's well-designed furniture constructed mostly of reclaimed skateboard decks on the blog \ \ \. Her usage of found materials is appealing and her story sounds like a romantic novel of some sorts: "After university and professional experience in the communication field, she returns to university (UQAM) and completes a bachelor degree in Visual & Media Arts. It is during her last year there that she embarks on her journey of creating her liveable sculptures. In 2010, she launches Ho!y Strong, her business banner under which she presents her collection of contemporary and hip looking standing-bars, tables and seats." Keep on keeping on Janie.
