Uhuru is the Swahili word for “freedom”. It’s also the name of a design/build furniture company in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn, New York, which subscribes to the Amish principles of functionality plus a healthy dose of sustainability. Their creativity and novelty on the rustic chic scale is off the charts as well.
According to their website (www.uhurudesign.com), the company’s credo “believes that each piece conceived, designed and produced should add some greater good to the world. This is evident in their creative reuse and repurpose in their creation of fine furniture.”
Avant-garde, world-saving and rustic chic . . . what more could you ask of your furniture?
