Recycled Wooden Furniture: Office Desk, Sideboard & Bookcase Designs

Wooden furniture is very rarely recycled, and we usually dump them as they get older. Such an attitude is born out of misconception that wood can’t be recycled. It’s not true; look what we have for you here.

A century ago, furniture in households and offices were all made up of wood. Later, with the advent of technology, and invention of newer raw materials, wood gave way to other material. And, towards the later part of history, we found that wooden articles were more convenient and comfortable. But their availability seems to be the major deterrent nowadays. It is here designers at Kann recognized the importance of recycled wooden products. Most of their products are composed of merely three strips of wooden palettes.

Their designs are very simple and attractive in appearance. Moreover, they don’t bear any clue that they are recycled stuff. All are as good as fresh products.

DIY Patio Cocktail Table With A Built-In Mini Garden

This isn’t the first DIY patio table with mini succulent garden we covers. Although it’s very cute and cheap to make so I can’t pass it by. The table is almost free to make because you can use wood pallets for it. The cool thing about using them is that the table is going to be carefree. Of course it also should be painted.

So, for the project you’ll need several pallets, paint brushes and latex paint, a sander and sandpaper, a hammer and nails, a drill and 3 inch wood screws, a saw, 2 5/8”x5”x8’ fence pickets, tape measure, clear satin sealant spray and wood glue.

Industrial Copper Piping And Wood Furniture

Industrial design is not for any place and taste but some of these things are so unreal and amazing that they definitely worth buying. This coffee table called Pipe Loop is one of them. British designer Tamasine Osher made it of copper piping and cedar of Lebanon. These two elements are so unexpected, so incompatible but look together so good because they exploit fundamental properties of the materials. You can also buy a Copper Wall Lamp to continue the collection and recycled copper candlestick holders by Michael Guy to add some ‘industriality’. Something industrial and vintage – truly exquisite style.
