Welcome to Throwbacks Home Interiors, the first book by the Detroit Duo, Bo Shepherd, and Kyle Dubay of sustainable furniture brand Woodward Throwbacks.

Throwbacks Home Interior dives into the creativity of home salvage, showing readers how to incorporate found and reclaimed materials into their home décor and furniture. For fans of historic details and homes with a story, Throwbacks Home Interiors offers plenty of inspiration for reusing, restyling, and elevating items that you find or love, matching modern with antique for a stylish and personal home. These projects are not multi-million dollar renovations with high-priced architects and interior designers but curated works of art by the homeowners themselves. Each house is different and reflective of the people who live in that space.⁠ We hope you enjoy

Each chapter showcases inspiration for incorporating salvaged materials into your home in new ways, including

  • Upscale furnishings made from unexpected materials, like old signs turned into a credenza
  • Ways to incorporate original hardware, flooring, or trim into any style, whether you prefer a more traditional look, a modern sleek design, or an eclectic mix.
  • Spotlights on various materials and how to include them in your home, whether that’s using a marble remnant to make a brand new countertop, turning broken tiles into a bespoke backsplash, or using offcuts of wood to create a one of a kind gorgeous side table.
  • Tips for finding salvaged and reclaimed material as well as insights into thrifting furniture and finding old things to love in your new home.


Sometimes known as those two crazy kids riding bikes around Detroit and tackling some of the wildest home restoration projects. Bo Shepherd and Kyle Dubay started their brand Woodward Throwbacks in 2014 in Kyles's one-car garage in the historic Brush Park Neighborhood. Creating small home decor from the found objects they salvaged from illegal dumping sites around the city, they sold their goods nationwide to accounts like Nordstom and Target. Since then, the duo has grown into a design studio that works out of a 24,000 sq ft converted Dodge dealership where they design and build bespoke furniture collections and custom millwork for their interior design and rehab projects.
They’ve been featured widely in publications such as The Today Show, Architectural Digest, Business Insider, and Metropolis Mag. The duo is now working on their newest restoration project, #Mysteryonmack, a 4,000 sq ft warehouse in the Island View neighborhood where they are converting it into their home.
