FRANKLIN. Austin Bryant Moore, the Franklin-based boutique furniture and cabinet company, received recognition at the recent International Contemporary Furniture Fair held in Miami and by product distributor CaraGreen for a bench made from a recycled material.

The signature ABM bench was made from the distinctly green U.S. product line called PaperStone®, a durable and versatile material distributed in the Southeast by CaraGreen of Carrboro, NC. ABM designers chose pewter-colored PaperStone® for their functional work of art. While the material is nearly as hard as metal or stone, PaperStone is lighter in weight and warmer to the touch.

The custom design bench concept was designed by Chad Austin and Scott Moore with ABM. The two craftsmen design, engineer, and build fine furniture and cabinetry for clients in Franklin, Belle Meade, Green Hills, Leiper’s Fork, and Harpeth Hills. Their one-of-a-kind furniture collections easily blend with modern and traditional decor.
