The newest old creations from an under-the-radar Philadelphia design-builder

Just as artisan Robert Ogden created his workshop out of a grand, derelict movie theater in Mount Airy, he creates his ruggedly beautiful furniture and lighting out of grand, derelict found objects. This single-slab dining table (from $3,498 at Anthropologie), for example, consists of farmer-felled Lancaster County silver maple, a salvaged industrial machine base, and Ogden’s metal-worked stretchers and frame. The table lamp (from $695 at Sundance) is a vintage pastiche of bridge lamp, andiron, crushed chandelier and quilted mercury shade. Wheels from a knitting machine, parts of boilers, plumbing, an old cuckoo clock, and Ogden’s own replica of a turn-of-the-century mirrored shade comprise the floor lamp (from $990 at John Derian, NY). Items available through retailers only.
