Yes or No?

This vintage piece of Samsonite luggage turned into a chair has been getting quite a lot of attention on Pinterest.

South African Katie Thompson recycles vintage items and repurposes them into new pieces.


What do you think?

I'm on the cusp somewhat with these but could definitely find a home for the first and the last one. Pretty cool. XXXX

I always appreciate repurposed items. Hmmm...I am suddenly imagining using the bottom half of a round vintage suitcase and adding a tufted pink satin top with lucite legs...I would take one of those!

Definitely, definitely love, especially the purple (though I love the Tiffany Blue too!). This is a fabulous blog, not sure how I've missed you! So happy to find you and happy to be your newest follower!

I was awfully curious to know the consensus! They are very whimsical and could be difficult to fit into a decorating scheme . . . but my personal preference is for a little whimsy in each room, anyway . . . a little lightheartedness keeps one from taking themselves so seriously, don't you think? I certainly wish one of them lived with me! I'll take the blue one, sil vous plait. :)

Very cool! Reminds me of something I'd see at Anthropologie.
