Broken Skateboard Sustainable Design

Get stoked over colorful scraps from recycled skateboard decks....

Saved from the landfill, designers are using skateboard graphics to push the boundaries of interior design and bring a vibrant story to life in every space they inhabit... 

I met Rich Moorehead, the Founder of  Art of Board at ICFF 2013 and he showed me how each tile is alive with its own texture, scratches, scrapes, gouges and color...evidence of an intense sport. Its not unusual that he calls his company - art of board. 

There are so many possibilities for interiors............ Go for a skateboard theme in your kids room: 

Use skateboard ceramic tile for kitchen back-splashes...

Accent walls in retail applications...

Along with Art of Board, Deckstool, a recycled skateboard furniture company also showcased at ICFF some rad stools...  Check out their Etsy website for some fun gifts too!

Art of Board is growing their brand and showcased textiles, pillows, house numbers and even cell phone covers with skateboard graphics. See the Vine from the ICFF show:
