Bade Stageberg Cox knows how to breath life into something someone once saw as no longer having value.
For his Street Seats Project, he collected 50 abandoned chairs from the streets of New York and covered them with a coat of taxi cab yellow paint. Each chair is stamped under it’s seat with the location and date when it was found.
This project is currently running and raising money for the Pier 94 Coffee Bar. If you’re interested in having one of these restored treasures, contact Bade at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Street Seats encourages me to to stretch my imagination and creativity to help others. I love the way that the chairs are eclectic and mixed in design, just as the neighborhoods that they came from…coming together to support something that everyone enjoys. Simply beautiful!
