Making Furniture from Old Bicycle Parts

Remain eco Designs


Krystal O’Mara can see the art and the utilitarian in the wheel of a bicycle.

Her new business, called ReMain EcoDesign, was featured in the August issue of Entrepreneur magazine because of its unique niche in the home furnishings marketplace.

She uses rims, spokes, hubs — essentially the entire bicycle — to make hourglass coffee tables, imaginative lighting fixtures and chairs without backs.

“Not much goes to waste,” she said.

Her products range widely in price. A simple light fixture sells for $15, but custom, large-scale lighting equipment is priced at $1,500. “The tables generally range from about $175 to $450,” she said.
