For the past 3 years, Funk & Junk has been a fixture in Lambertville, NJ, just off Rt 179 (in the teal building around the corner from Sunoco). 

We are located in what was the private residence and saloon of one of NJ’s first female mayors, Lambertville’s Mary Sheridan. The historic detailing of 19 North Franklin is evident in the large display windows and saloon type French doors. We couldn’t have picked a better place to call ‘home’.

If you are looking for a statement piece, look no further.

We specialize in making “Furniture with Soul”. Whether it is custom made and designed artisan piece that we make from salvage materials OR you learn how to use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in one of our classes to give a facelift to a piece you already own, we want you to have a piece that is one-of-a-kind and is unique to you!

We take pride in our work and are involved in every step of the process. We source as many salvage materials locally, as we believe in reusing and repurposing. We breathe new life into old things that people may have grown tired of using. We work with quality handcrafted woods, like Black Walnut, Sycamore, and Maple. Then depending on the project we will mix in metals like Zinc, Copper and even Slate. We love turning Trash into Treasure.

After we source our materials, we personally hand make the piece in our workshop in NJ. We work together with our clients to create their perfect one-of-a-kind. Just look at our portfolio.

We are also known for our unique lighting. We are known to be able to “make just about anything into a light”.

Visit our portfolio to get an idea of what we have made for clients in the past OR check out our studio classes where anyone can try their hand at creative DIY projects for their homes, using your own or our materials. 

Our showroom shows just a glimpse of all that is possible.

We hope you will be inspired by our creations. We can make that idea come to life.

This is what we do. We make it different. We make it Funky.

Always One-of-a-Kind.

    A carpenter since the age of 15, Gene has been passionate about reclaiming treasures he found in rivers and abandoned buildings, repurposing them into unique handcrafted furniture.

He worked with interior designers  in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania to create custom tables, benches and lighting to meet their specifications.


In 2017, we were also on the popular TV show, Flea Market Flip. We are honored to be chosen to be part of this show. The episode was called “A Funky Good Flip!” Season 11, Episode 1. We are proud of the work we did on the show, as it showcases how we think out of the box in all of our creations. The show stays true to who we are.
