The greatest thing about upcycled stuff is that it is always unique in just about every way imaginable. This is generally because the people who craft this stuff can’t really work off of a blueprint or factory design like other companies do. Most upcycled stuff is just made out of whatever materials happen to be available, meaning that you know you’re getting a completely unique piece that no one else in the world will have an exact copy of. I think this is especially great when it comes to furniture, and I’ve found a couple of great upcycled furniture models that look great.
There are so many pallets just tossed into garbage dumps every year that it makes you want to vomit. The really bad thing is that these pallets are so damn useful for so many different things. You can use the wood for just about anything, and it’s great to get creative with pallets. This is why this table is so cool. They took an old, disused pallet and refurbished it to the point where it could be used as a table. I’ve even seen a foldable chair made out of a pallet made by the same company. All in all, I think that it is a very unique design and they used the pallet very creatively. A great example of what can be done with limited resources and unlimited creativity.
This is another example of how creative you can get with old junk. The look is a little on the “modern” side, and it carefully toes the line between industrial and homey. It’s really tough to explain, but I can definitely see how this could be very popular in a number of different circumstances. It will go great with just about any design scheme, and it’s a totally great conversation starter. If you’re looking for something unique and definitely interesting, this is the way to go.
