REcreate Extraordinary Recycled Furniture

Cool Idea: REcreate Extraordinary Recycled Furniture

If I had a nickel for every salvaged wooden chair I've seen given a fresh coat of paint, I'd be a millionaire. The trick works wonders, but it's not exactly innovative. REcreate's recycled furniture, on the other hand, is! Cape Town-based interior designer Katie Thompson transforms pieces of discarded junk into unique pieces of furniture, lighting, and interior accessories with an entirely new function.


With high-end finishes, superior upholstery, and elements of surprise and flair, a galvanized bucket becomes a tufted ottoman, a typewriter turns into a light, and a grocery cart changes into a butcher block. Check out some samples of REcreate's creative furnishings below!
