Everyone is more aware of the environment than ever before. In the last few years, many new words have been introduced into the English language that refer to the process of reusing existing materials rather than simply cutting more trees or sending more to the landfill. Lakewood 400 Dealers have long been known for being uniquely creative and on the cutting edge when it comes to design ideas and what’s going on in the world. That’s why you will find items throughout the show that have been repurposed … brought from outdated to highly sought after, and made useful in todays homes and businesses.
100_5470One Dealer who takes this to the highest level is John Collier of Collier Custom Designs, who comes to Lakewood from Altona, PA. John deals in architectural salvage, the real deal, and actually goes into incredible historic buildings that are being demolished, mostly up north, and removes anything that can be reused. He then turns tin ceiling panels into frames for mirrors, signs, art panels and more. He builds tables of every size out of banister parts and old flooring, as well as massive counters, bars and shelving units and wall shelves. John is well known in the US and can locate items you are seeking. He welcomes custom orders.
