Upscale and Upcycled Furniture

Tuesday, March 1, 2011

Check out this inspiring furniture from Design By Leftovers. The Swedish based design team of Linda Netsman and Jona Netsman use “leftovers” to create this unique furniture. Leftovers “believe that the old, discarded or forgotten can be reborn. That every person and everything has a story to tell.”

The beautiful piece you are looking at here is from their “People” Collection. It is made entirely from “pre-loved, re-claimed garments and fabrics.” We love how the mono-chromatic patchwork gives each piece the comforting feel of your Grandmother’s quilt while maintaining the upscale vibe you would expect from quality furniture.

Looking for something edgy and graphic? Check out this piece from their “Human” collection.

This artistic furniture is truly unique and so much fun to look at. They also work with architects and designers to complete large scale projects like hotels, restaurants and interior retail space. We love that these projects expose so many people to upcycled furniture and materials. Well done Linda and Jona!
