Inspiring Upcycling – Lee Broom Decanterlights

I often come across beautiful crystal decanters on purchasing trips for vintage goodies for our shop. Tastes have changed over the years and many people no longer feel the need to put their whisky or sherry into a decanter – no matter how fabulous it may be! So I was really delighted to discover these amazing decanterlights by interior and product designer, Lee Broom.

It’s great to see that some of these wonderful decanters have been given a new lease of life and can keep on sparkling prettily!

Inspiring Upcycling – Kelly Swallow

Kelly Swallow’s rescued chairs and sofas are beautiful. As she says on her website ‘each one is individually sourced then re-invented with a collection of designer and vintage fabrics’.  They certainly make you smile!

I particularly like the chairs covered in German flour sacks…

and Hungarian mangle cloths … ( I didn’t know what a mangle cloth was until I discovered Kelly’s chairs!)

 And how about re-using old rugby shirts like this?

Kelly’s website has lots of inspiration for creating amazing chairs. You can even design your very own bespoke chair … so what would YOUR bespoke chair be covered in?
