hotsie Gregson and Willem Sypesteyn melded their lifelong passions and experiences in art, design, and architecture to create reworks, after making a bold and life-changing decision to leave their established businesses and homes in New Orleans to move to Austin following Hurricane Katrina. The result is reworks, a company of artisans and craftspeople who design and fabricate furniture, lighting, and home accessories from beautiful and unusual objects sourced from around the world, distinctive raw materials, and architectural remnants. The collection offers two distinct lines, classics and limited editions, and their pieces are described by many— interior designers, colleagues, friends, and clients alike—as welding the classic history of New Orleans to the edgy playfulness of Austin. “This creative couple has merged their talents in reworks, an atelier for furniture, lighting, mirrors and accessories created from found objects, architectural remnants and distinctive raw materials such as steel and glass,” says Helen Thompson, writer and editor for various interior design and architecture publications. reworks classics skinny leg double end table with silver burnishing and limited edition white antique reclaimed floor lamp.
