The Reclaimers – Dapper Frank’s

Posted on Nov 16, 2014 by

We meet four British designers who are recycling and reusing, helping us reduce our carbon footprint and raising the style stakes at the same time. From salvaged metals, reclaimed timber and vintage treasures come contemporary industrial creations and timeless quirky designs. These reappropriated pieces are part of an increasingly popular aesthetic and answer a common call for distinctly individual homeware and interiors.

All hail, the reclaimers.

When Calum Balding struggled to find distinctive furniture for his family home, he simply began adapting items he had inherited and restoring unusual vintage pieces he found on his travels. Dapper Frank’s is named after Calum’s grandfather and it is his hope that he can one day involve his three-year old son Frankie too. Whether reviving a battered old trunk or reworking a vintage coat rack, Calum clearly takes pleasure in restoration and upcycling. Entirely self-taught, he has a keen eye for the potential of a piece. Calum is currently hard at work on a new collection of his own designs. He calls his pieces “vintage with swagger”. Well, they cut the perfect dash with us.
