Tripp Gregson

Tripp Gregson builds traditional and artistic furniture and accessories from vintage materials and objects. He calls his work "Retro Nouveau," because antique wood, hardware, old signs, doors and other found objects are utilized in the construction.

His friends think of him as a partially reformed packrat, but far afield from the salvage yard, his artistic work conveys a fun, capricious energy through new juxtapositions of shape and color.

Recently his "Jazz Series" furniture pieces utilizing recycled traffic signs have been featured in art galleries and magazines across the United States.

                  I gave this gift to my cousins (also got one for myself) and they said it was the best backscratcher they have ever had (I concur!). In fact they asked me to get them another one and also how they could get more to give to friends as presents.

                        We have two of these. One is in the bedroom the other in the living room. We love them so much we are buying three more as gifts for our grown Children. These are so unique and are superior to bamboo in every way.
