Work It
"I always go to the source for furniture, opting for the real original items," LeGrand says, with complete conviction. "I shop vintage 90 percent of the time, if I could do 100 percent, I would. It's a matter of principle and there's an environmental aspect to it. Why buy a cheap copy that'll eventually fall apart, prove more expensive in the long run, and damage the environment, when I can find the original — the real deal — reuse and rethink these pieces in a contemporary way."
