the future is green
We are a sustainable retail boutique specializing in custom furnishings, as well as decor, gifts and accessories – all handcrafted from repurposed materials. In our design and furniture showroom, you'll find pieces that have been selected for their utility, creativity, and modern re-purposed nature. Our incredible products are fabricated from the most unsuspecting raw materials – boxcar flooring, drum cymbals, bicycle tires, car hoods, wine barrels, old machinery, and so much more. The majority of our goods are made by Colorado artisans and craftspeople, although we do source across the country and world. The shop is ever-changing so stop on by to see what's new!
Daniel Louis, Founder & Owner
Daniel Louis, a Colorado native, returned to Denver in 2008 after graduating from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with a degree in Fine Arts. In the summer of 2010, Daniel decided to take a different approach to the green revolution. Rather than focusing broadly on the ever increasing number of “eco-friendly” products, Daniel chose to focus on products made from resources already in existence, and Revampt was born!
A major part of his inspiration in reusing materials came from Design Build Bluff. An amazing non-profit organization through the University of Utah. Consisting of architecture students who design and build homes for impoverished families on the Navajo reservation in the four corners region. Learning to work as a group, locate abundant reclaimed resources, and hand build homes was a experience of a lifetime. When items are made from second hand materials they gain character that simply cannot be replicated. Since he has two young sons, Daniel believes that everyone should think progressively to help enhance future generations. Using materials that have already been processed is a perfect way to do so.
Kate Langley, Showroom Manager & Designer
Kate joined Revampt in August 2017, after moving from Minneapolis. With a bachelors degree in Retail Merchandising from the U of M Twin Cities, she has over 13 years of experience working in sales, visual merchandising, and inventory control. She grew up with a father who built wood furniture and a mother who sewed clothing and redesigned the interior of each home they moved to. Kate learned to sew at a young age and pursued the clothing industry in her early career.
Kate ran her own vintage and upcycled clothing shop through Etsy for a few years until she began working for a Minneapolis-based leather footwear company, Tread Light Gear. After 2+ years of creating leather moccasins, sandals, and bags, she ventured into developing her own designs that focused on using recycled leather. When she's not at Revampt, Kate and her husband are creating ceramics, leather, and macrame goods under the name, Ninth House Goods. Likely though, they're hiking in the mountains with their border collie, Siri!
