the joy...

...of recycling
Who doesn't like vintage stuff - whether it's fashion or home decoration? Well, besides the good looks and inherent "stories" these objects come with, let's give them a big plus for the environmental-friendliness.
Yup, they also do nature a lot of good - why chop yet ANOTHER tree for a new chair, when you can refurbish a lovely piece you already own or can get almost for free?
Take the example of Alabama Chanin, a wonderful design studio that mixes new, organic and recycled materials in order to create superb works of art.
The above piece is made out of old, handmade kitchen chairs (circa 1900) and woven recycled men's ties.
