    The recycled iron lamp from Lamponi Lamps is a great piece because it has a gcool design and is functional and a great conversation piece. It’s made from an old Vapor iron, something I wouldn’t have considered how to recycle in an artistic way!

    MotoArt designs home furniture out of recycled parts from real planes that are pretty cool. I also like the chairs made out of bikes.

    I absolutely love this chair.  It is made from an old suitcase, but still looks new.  This is a neat piece of furniture because it would look good in a house in which you probably wouldn’t expect to see recycled furniture.  See the link below for more chairs made out of suitcases.

    I saw someone take old wine crates and completely transform them into cute night stands. She stained them to give it a darker color, but the original prints on the wine crates could still be seen so it made it look vintage.
