From Yesterday's Fishing Boats to the Modern Day Home, EcoChic Lifestyles Creates Upscale Furniture That You Can Feel Good About

Home Decor Company EcoChic Lifestyles Is Leading a Reclaimed Materials Revolution by Offering Homeowners Hand-Cut Wood and Metal Furnishings Sourced From Bridges, Boats and Bungalows

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/30/14 -- EcoChic Lifestyles CEO Megan Risdon doesn't believe in cookie-cutter housing.

She developed her renegade sense of style after experiencing the constrictive sensibilities of the corporate world. She knew there had to be a better way to live, a way to create a career full of deep meaning, and she found it by looking in a mirror.

But this wasn't any ordinary mirror.

"This wasn't just anonymous wood from a factory," Risdon says. "It had a former life that gave it character and personality."

This mirror was framed with reclaimed tropical wood, and the colors and grains captivated and inspired Megan. She began to dig into the history of reclaimed wood, and she quickly unearthed stories from the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami- stories of homeowners salvaging destroyed fishing boats and using them to create decorative home art.

This caught her attention - people in one of the most disaster-prone parts of the world were creating beauty out of devastation. They were transforming symbols of loss and destruction into symbols of life and victory, and by placing these symbols in their homes, they were forging a deep personal connection with their country and their loved ones. This inspired Megan to start EcoChic Lifestyles in an effort to help homeowners inject beauty and meaning into their homes.

EcoChic Lifestyles creates beautiful upscale furniture out of reclaimed materials, often using wood from tropical fishing boats and iron from bridges in its creations. Every creation is as unique as the person who buys it, having been expertly crafted and cut by hand for a brilliantly bespoke look.
