Get Back Inc, the Oakville-based pioneering purveyors of vintage industrial lighting and furnishings, has opened a second location in the Kent Barns enclave of Kent. Founder and designer Tim Byrne, who was among the vanguards who shaped the industrial-modern aesthetic, brings back to life the craftsmanship that went into the machines and furnishings that faithfully served the men and women who literally made America.

Since 2000, Get Back Inc has been dedicated to making new art on old ground, and this new Get Back Inc outpost will be a homecoming of sorts by reconnecting Kent to its rich early history of iron production. The materials, castings and fixtures of Get Back’s genuine industrial furnishings, forged with uncommon quality, are imbued with inimitable character and serve as heritage pieces of functional art. 7 Fulling Lane, Kent; 860-592-5026; getbackinc.com
