Since we’ve been looking at lots of items created from recycled newspaper, I couldn’t resist featuring this recycled newspaper chair! …especially since it is on sale! Could be a perfect novelty for the porch or casual space. Eco furnishings at their best.
Was $595.00 Now $235.00 at VivaTerra.
Absolutely beautiful! Created from reclaimed, recycled bicycle and tractor inner-tubes. Handmade by Berlin artist and creator Jaap Wijnants from Puncture Bags along with furniture designer Patrick Kerti. This was a special project, but check out Punch Bags’ other products like wallets, purses and the elegantly designed pencil case.
Available at Puncture Bags’ Etsy Shop and Puncture Bags’ DaWanda Shop.
One of a kind and hand crafted from used oak wine barrels. Apparently the chemical properties of the oak itself affect the color, flavor, and texture of the wine in the wine-making process. Over time many of the oak properties get “leached” out of the barrel and after 3 to 5 vintages the barrel is ready to be discarded. Stil Novo Design steps in and turns this unfortunate waste into many beautiful ‘green’ idea. Old world integrity at its finest.
$395.00 for the Green Chair and $185.00 for the stool at Stil Novo Design’s Etsy Shop
