Custom furnishings made in DUMBO

Custom furnishings made in DUMBO
Hand made furniture is a rare experience these days; handcrafted pieces in New York City is even rarer. The
reclaimed furniture line by MARK JUPITER is not only hand made in DUMBO, Brooklyn, but constructed from
materials out of the history of New York itself. Every piece incorporates the beauty of its own mysterious past.
Whether it is old growth Redwood from a 100-year-old New York City water tower, rare spalted Elm from trees
toppled by the Brooklyn tornado of 2011, or extinct Heart Pine from the old Brooklyn sugar refinery of Red Hook.
MARK JUPITER offers a collection of custom hand crafted furnishings at a price accessible to the general
market.

Walnut Media Console
This Walnut media console is made to order for a neighboring loft in DUMBO, Brooklyn. The
piece, which doesn't have any visible hardware or handles, features hydraulic soft close
hinges so one can fully focus on the uninterrupted wood grain cut from a single piece of
wood. Holes in the back provide ventilation and exit for media cables.

Price: $3,200
Dimensions: 60”L x 20”W x 24”H
Heart Pine Platform Bed
This custom platform bed is made from a salvaged 400-year-old Heart Pine beam. Only the
surface boards of the beams were used so that the original saw marks could still be seen.
The wood was reclaimed from the demolished Philipp Morris building in Louisville, KY - a
structure of incredible architectural history. It has found a new home in a Harlem Townhouse
uptown in New York City.
Material: Heart Pine
Price: $5,000
Dimensions: 92”L x 98”W x 42”H

on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. It features adjustable shelves and hydraulic soft close
hinges. Four wholes in the back provide ventilation and exit for media cables. The legs are
made out of hot rolled plate steel.

demolished in Tribeca. A whitewash stain was applied as the finish giving very clean feel to
an otherwise rough appearance. The legs are cast from recycled aluminum.

Price: $3,500
Dimensions: 94”L x 38”W x 33” H

toppled after hurricane Irene in 2011 in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Elm is approaching extinction in
this country due to the spread of the Dutch Elm disease making this an incredibly rare piece.
