Stockpile Designs is the brainchild of Brooklyn-based furniture designer Jake Wright. Raised by a USAF pilot and a defense contractor, his childhood home was cluttered with ephemera from his parent's careers: model airplanes, brass lanterns and Berber rugs from duty in North Africa, samples of radiation shielding from missile defense systems.
