Inspiration Index: Plumbing Parts



I know what you're thinking. Plumbing parts, really? Trust us on this one. Repurposed plumbing parts are the perfect DIY material: they're modern, industrial and effortlessly chic. They tell a message of times past, a stripped down style that is at once functional and beautiful.
