Piece Of Mine: Up-cycled Furniture

Our next event is on 20 August, and it's our first collaboration with a furniture designer! Not just any furniture designer, but one that actively up-cycles. We love how they've demonstrated that waste, when thoughtfully considered, can be made beautiful and functional. We thought to share with you some of the pieces they  have in their gorgeous store. 

This low-lying table was salvaged from an bull cart. 

From a real tree trunk that was made into furniture and then converted one more time into cupboard. Double-upcycled. ;) 

These four chairs are a set but can be bought individually. They're made from discarded banners, usually from the Ministry of Informaiton, Communications and the Arts (MICA). The graphics are beautiful in our opinion.
