The Elsie Series by Nine Stories Furniture uses reclaimed sheet metal from expired autos. Nine Stories sift through "the vast landscape of the American salvage yard to collect textures and colors that only years of sun and rain can create." The particular weathering and stress patterns that the material has accumulated over the years is carefully considered during the composition of each piece. The roof and body panel sheet metal sections are left with their original finish to add character and originality to each table. Not only are the top table panels made from the beaten car metal but other features are as well. The legs are cut and bent in the studio from the same source metal using their specially made jigs. With their shop located in the Brooklyn Navel Yard, Nine Stories Furniture brings alot of flavor, history, and swag to their work. The Elsie line is comprised of 70% reclaimed materials with the "best pieces" coming from the roofs of cars.
