Just re-function it

Don’t throw away a thing!
If you’ve taken our lead and you have decided to take the IKEA out of your IKEA furniture in your quest to create a more personal space, you should consider not replacing, but using your old and broken furniture, and giving them new functions.
Take inspiration from South African designer Katie Thomson, who re-uses junk, discarded material, broken household appliances, vintage leather suitcases, old hat boxes and many others, to create a wide range of furniture, lighting and interior accessories. In Recreate, you can admire the new functions introduced to all sorts of different objects, now transformed to interior design objects and recycled furniture.
