SOLO Home Design Adds Some Grit to Your Interior Style

Gears, rebar and bicycle inner tubes have never looked so domesticated.

When Chicago couple Meghan Leese and Michael Lukomski grew tired of all the mass-produced, low-quality home furnishings and accessories out there, they decided to take matters into their own hands. Allow us to introduce you to the result: SOLO Home Design.

SOLO is all about unique pieces that incorporate new, reclaimed, repurposed, and re-used wood, metals, and textiles (think gears, rebar, bicycle inner tubes… that sort of thing). And while Leese and Lukomski are the driving force behind SOLO, it really is a family affair. In addition to Leese’s background in fashion design and advertising and Lukomski’s engineering expertise, Leese’s stepfather is a master wood craftsman and her brother is a metal fabricator.

The items are for sale on the website, but also keep an eye out for them at this summer’s Guerilla Truck Show.
