#Upcycle it!

August 15, 2012

To be honest I’ve never been a fan of upcycled furniture. The concept of re-using products and materials and reducing waste is brilliant but I rarely find the outcome aesthestically pleasing, and then I saw the work of Thomas Wold and Zoe Murpy and I was converted!

For me they each take upcycling to a whole new level and make it unbelievably slick and stylish. Thomas Wold’s pieces are also really quirky and fun and his fine arts training shines through in his furniture pieces.

These pieces by Zoe Murphy are so delicate and classic and I love the use of colour.

Another beautiful Zoe Murphy piece – love the inlaid timber! The piece below is by Thomas Wold.

Love this Thomas Wold cabinet with it quirky details and gorgeous colours.

The pieces above and below are really works of art – they’re fantastic! They also feel very Salvador Dali-esque to me, and I love that.
