James Taylor

Lead Designer and master carpenter, Ballard Reuse

James Taylor has been salvaging and repurposing material in his home, yard and as the furniture designer for Ballard Reuse (formerly the ReStore) for close to 20 years. The spaces and objects he creates are both beautiful in the expression of the history of things and in the functionality of good craftsmanship. James’s work is a meeting of art, economy and recycling—taking the very best of good honest stuff and breathing new life into it.

Visit Ballard Reuse, booth #2526, at this year’s show.
