Deerfield Beach, FL ― Three friends with a passion for design spotted an old chair by the dumpster one day and rather than pass it by without a thought, they were hit with inspiration, marking the creation of Homeless Design Lab. This fledgling company founded by Lucia, Ricki and Arnold is based on the familiar adage “one man’s trash is another’s treasure” and the threesome is using their creativity and design skills to breathe new life into tossed pieces of furniture.

The members of the Homeless Design Lab team, each with a very different perspective on design, decided to form the company after noticing how many pieces of furniture are thrown away. The group carefully selects each piece of homeless furniture by its look and the piece is then taken to the “Lab” to be refinished and reupholstered with high quality materials.

For now, a small patio serves as their lab and the launching ground for their artistic experiments. No two pieces are alike and the team is very perceptive, allowing the furniture to somehow tell them which direction to follow with each design.

Not quite ready for the large-scale retail scene, but well on their way, the Homeless Design Lab creators are putting their big ideas in motion and invite furniture enthusiasts along for the ride to enjoy their future innovations and progress. In the world of furniture design, this up and coming company is definitely one to watch for.
