Upcycle heaven...

Don't throw it away, upcycle it!

I love how lighting can change the mood of a room, in my house we use a lot of side lamps, candles and down lighters to create a different mood in each room. So it got me thinking, there are so many everyday items that could be upcycled into fabulous light fixtures and fittings...here's what I found.

I love the coffee pot, it was created by French designer Gilles Eichenbaum, his website Garbage is great and he uses 'garbage' to create beautiful items.

The chandelier was made from unwanted books by British designer Lucy Norman, she has a website called Lula Dot which sells lighting, jewellery and furniture made from waste items. If you like it it will set you back a whopping £340.00!!!

Now who'd have thought the common garden PVC pipe could make a beautiful lamp, but the designers at Materious obviously thought so and have come up with these gorgeous lamps.

The chandelier made from paper clips is fantastic and I found this on Upcycle Us, a great blog for all upcycling projects and it even has a link to a tutorial.

What do you think about upcycling? TTFN~x~
