Little boxes




I love the idea of furniture constructed from cupboards, drawers and pieces of luggage. I guess it's the colour combinations that make them work so brilliantly, but I do like the concept of useful things being formed into a new useful thing :) The fabulous pieces above were designed by the Maarten de Ceulaer Design Studio. The Bedroom Closet installations will be on show at Design Basel in June and you can see more of their leather luggage designs on their website.

These are fantastic. I love seeing clever things people do to repurpose gorgeous old bits and pieces.

Oh these are beautiful!

I saw something similar years ago (not such gorgeous colours) & I've been collecting drawers (& driving hubby NUTS) ever since.

Amazing! I reckon we could just about do that with the amount of luggage we have in this house!

These made me happy! My kind of creativity in design. Love the first 2 so much.
It somehow reminded me of the works of Micheal Johansson
