5 recreate furniture

South African designer Katie Thompson believes nothing should be thrown away. In fact, this student of dadaism seeks to push the boundaries of what's luxurious. In comes Recreate Furniture! Katie has created a line of furniture stemming from her collection of vintage items and it's so cool. I would have never thought of using an old suitcase to create a plush side chair or ottoman, but Katie makes it look great.

Love the color of this side table with a lucite top!

How cool is this lamp made from an old typewriter?

These are just a few Recreate collection; there are lamps, seating, accessories and even lighting to see! To learn more about Katie's design philoshophy, see the rest of the collection and maybe even buy a custom piece, check out the Recreate website.


  1. LOVE! Great find, lady! I must have that purple cabana stripe fabric, too...

    PS - LOVE your new headshot in the right side bar!

  2. Niki, thats and old adding machine and not a typewriter, but I love them all

  3. That stripe looks a lot like a sample of Jim Thompson Spetses I picked up today...

  4. the chair is so creative. wow. i can see my hubby trying to that himself. I must hide everything!

  5. That is a really great concept. I especially love the first gray and purple chair, I think it would look great in my room =)


Tell me what you think! I love your comments.
