The Story

The Hungarian Workshop first started out as a furniture company making patio set out in Las Vegas. A short year later we made to the move to south California where we felt opportunities would open up more doors to bigger and better things. (Boy we were right!) With in the first six months we had Stone Brewing Co. contacting us and it was with them where the whole better furniture got started. Right after I finished my first barrel chair and took it back for the managers to see and orders started. With in that first sunny San Diego year is when we officially phased out Redwood and Cedar furniture and focused mainly on our new Upcycled Barrel Furniture Line.

Repurposed, up-cycled, recycled and re-used is what a lot of people are looking for these days when it comes to furniture. And not just the interior designer who is looking to give that certain living space a rustic kick.

Owning repurposed furniture is great way to keep more trees from being cut down and reducing on our waste. But don’t forget, anything can be reused. Whether it’s wood, metal or any sort of plastic if you think you can give it a new life, it’s worth a shot.

Repurposed Furniture San Diego - 100 Whiskey Barrels | Hungarian Workshop

Wine & Whiskey Barrel Furniture

The Hungarian Workshop’s main focus is on up-cycled Wine and Whiskey Barrel Furniture. The company started out in 2010 making standard outdoor patio furniture and in 2012 transitioned into repurposing old barrels. Barrels are made from either French, Hungarian or American White Oak. The wood is a solid, sturdy and durable material which is great for furniture and it’s a shame to see them thrown away. Certain wineries and distilleries go through hundreds of barrels a year and I am just glad to know my company is helping out. So far we have turned well over 400 barrels into furniture and we are not showing any signs of slowing down just yet.
