Upcycling chic!

This gorgeous tufted sofa is made from recycled vintage canvas. It's hard to tell, isn't it?

The lamp is made from fire extinguisher. How clever and unexpected!

The stool (as side table) is recycled from Kraft cardboard. I think this project can be easily replicated by crafty DIYers out there!

Pendant lights are made from jars and chairs are made from plastic Coca Cola bottles. These are such wonderful ideas!

This rustic dining table is made from recycled wood which I totally adore!

The chandelier is made from glass and corks which I find so quirky and charming!

The ottoman is made from cricket-ball offcuts and the legs of the stool are made out of axe handles. Totally unexpected and such clever use of recycled materials.

These upcycling pieces are incredibly chic and well-made, I just love them all. Repurposing furniture and home accessories are one of the latest trend now. What are your thoughts? Are you a fan? Which one is your favorite piece?
