It’s a table, It’s a desk, It’s a door!

30 Jan

I found this really cool recycled desk made by Manoteca. It’s handmade and consist of a desk, 3 recycled rawhide pockets and a wood drawer.

“Manoteca is a little house in a park, a lab where old and abandoned things are hosted among with recycled materials, reinvented and reassembled.”

If closed, It can function as a table. If open, It’s a desk with holders. Reinventing furniture so it finds a new function is a great idea! For more reinvented furnitures look at Manoteca‘s homepage!

A little collection of furniture

28 Jan

I found a lot of nice pieces online while I was surfing just the other day. I have different feelings about them all (the sofa I love, the chair’s are more interesting), but that’s why I decided to share them with you!

This first piece is a couch. To be more precise it’s the Hudson Bay Sofa from Sit and Read – a Brooklyn based creative agency, gallery and retail space . It consist of a teak frame designed by Kofod-Larsen, really simple but wonderful cushions upholstered in Hudson Bay blankets. Don’t you just love the pattern?!Screen Shot 2012-10-15 at 15.28.38

The second piece is a Merrow Associates Sideboard by love vintage furniture. (link below)

The next piece I found was this really cool armchair. I an’t stop looking at the arm rsts. It was designed in the 1950s Illum Wikkelsø for N. Eilersen. The curves of the chair is just captivating whichever angle you choose to look at them.  Wikkelsø’s philosophy was “that furniture should embrace the body smoothly and tenderly, and should be a delight to the eye but also be solid and durable”.PageImage-497078-2456266-220O8937

I found a lot of other stuff, and I also have more pictures of what is featured in this little slide show:
