Recycled Furniture Ideas 2020

It’s nice to be nice.  It’s nice to be nice to the earth, and today’s roundup of traditional furniture made from recycled materials is a testament to the fact that there’s always a new way to be thoughtful when you apply a little creativity to a problem that needs solving.

This collection is beyond resourceful; it’s inspiring. Although a few of today’s entries are things we could never make ourselves, does anyone have access to whiskey barrel staves and enough metalworking skill to pull off the chair below, for instance? Others are actually rather accessible.

The glass decanter pendant lights could also translate into a do-it-yourself project with wine bottles and an LED light kit from the local hardware store.  With starting points like these, the options are endless, just like the far-reaching effects we can have on the environment when we apply a little extra thoughtfulness.

Unusual desk ideas

No chance of finding anything like this as it is rare and very unusual. Here though is a great idea for those who work on the move. A car desk that comes as standard or for those needing more, with a built in power adapter.

Lamp Made From Motorcycle Parts

Another stunning design and one that could easily be made by those who own a large garage business. Unique as in this and most cases the parts will come direct from the bike. As we can see in the lamp above there is a polished shock absorber and what looks like a metal cam chain tool.
