Now here’s a sofa I could live with 🙂 Via Lattea showcased this range of eco-friendly furniture designed by Mario Bellini and Meritalia, at this year’s Milan Furniture Fair. Made from recycled grain and sugar sacks, the frame is made from steel mesh and they’re filled with air and lit from within by an LED light. Could your living room handle one of these?
RedCamper‘s range of handbags and laptop bags are made from repurposed vintage car upholstery, original travel and holiday themed 35mm slides, airplane seatbelt clips, maps and postcards. Each piece is one of a kind and features real images taken on real holidays. Each bag also includes one naughty pin-up slide, in honour of creator Maura Gramzinski’s Grandfather, who used to sneak them into the family holiday slide show just for fun.
