Collaboration is what makes us swoon here at Lila B. and we feel so lucky to have teamed up with several San Francisco talents to make our business ooze with creativity.

We’ll be featuring a few of our local artisans in following blogs…and to start off..we’ve got a doozy! Old & Board.

Our recent chat with Old & Board…

Lila B.: We love the tiny accents you add in. A twisted nail, a hammered metal piece, a rusty bit- Where do you find these?

Old & Board: We find all of our accents/details from salvage yards.  Our motto is, if something can be used for its actual use then we don’t want to re-purpose it but if it’s most likely just “junk” then that is where we can turn it into something cool and unique.  By adding these points of detail, it turns our chair, planter box, etc. into some more than just a piece of furniture; it takes on a personality of its own.

LB: Why #7?

O&B: #7 is one of our lucky numbers and we are superstitious.

LB: What inspires you?

O&B: We hate wasting anything and that’s…
