I just came across The Suitcase Chair by South African designer Katie Thompson and sold by Turkish store Sut Kutusu. Katie Thompson set up REcreate in 2009 using recycled furniture discarded as junk to create a unique range of furniture, lighting and interior accessories. I love Chesterfield sofa cushioning and the chic cream works well against the cool teal blue retro suitcase.
An old worn out suitcase takes on a new life as a comfy chair. Steel reinforced internal structure, upholstered in 100% white linen with Liberty floral fabric covered deep buttons and whitewashed timber turned legs.
