Simply Fabulous Philadelphia Home Design Tours: David Fierabend’s Repurposed Penthouse in Northern Liberties | G Philly

The apartment’s funky-yet-clean vibe is the result of a clever mix of repurposed materials, used as accents for Fierabend’s thoughtfully curated collection of modern furniture. Walls are strewn with old barn wood and salvaged chicken-coop tin, adding to the rustic vibe and careful patterning scheme throughout. “It’s just my style,” Fierabend says. “I like to repurpose, but I wanted it to be in an eclectic way that makes sense.”

The bar is made up of live edge poplar and rusted supports from worn bleachers; a hulking ship piping mold, picked up from Provenance, has now been re-imagined as a side table. The plywood table that sits in the center of the unit’s relaxed office is an original that consists of “hundreds of cuts all glued together,” Fierabend says. “So it has a lot of texture to it and natural lines in it, which are really terrific.”
