The Plume Cabinet - SOLD
This 3 door cabinet has been crafted from the remains of a 100 year old red cedar chiffonier, the legs and the top were saved and recycled to create the structure of the cabinet.
The doors and the sides of the cabinet are the result of old original petrol & oil box ends. The graphics that appear are from the 1920’s & 1930’s where fuel & oils were carted around in crates across Australia.
This one-off custom piece is hand crafted by Kym Carslake a bespoke furniture maker, who resides in Rylstone NSW. All materials used are salvaged timbers found in Australia.

Handcrafted furniture, australian inspired homewares & gifts: the FOLKOLOGIE story
The story of every day Folk.
Through our deep love and passion for all things regional & australiana, Folkologie was born as a result of a furniture craftsman and a retail designer wanting to bring something a little special, quirky & creative to the aussie consumer.
Kymbo our master furniture craftsman has been salvaging and saving historical pieces of timber for some 20 plus years. A builder by trade, formerly based in Boggabri NSW, Kymbo has spent the better part of his working life collecting incredibly old and precious timbers from all over the NSW region and repurposing these finds into stunning pieces of one off unique furniture designs. His ability to make the old new and current again can be seen in all of his work. Kymbo says ‘the timber I save determines the furniture piece’. Every single bit he salvages is recycled and reworked into something new, often working with timbers that are 100+ years old.
Carol a visual merchandiser & retail designer by trade has spent her whole life in ‘shops’. Inspired by small scale, old school retail, and by the creativity of our homegrown aussie artists, makers, and designers Carol has literally been sourcing and collecting the names of these creative gems over the years with the intention to showcase them in her store one day! It has always been Carol's goal to open up a retail concept in regional NSW, with the focus on small runs of unique, creative & quirky goods. Carol looks to partner with makers who upcycle and recycle materials wherever they can. Adding to this her desire to bring something a little fresh & fun to the table can be seen across the Folkologie store.
