I’ve just come across the Recreate studio, a fabulously quirky home interiors company based in Cape Town, South Africa. Owner Katie Thompson collects and reuses pieces of diguarded junk to recreate a unique, recycled range of furniture, lighting and interior accessories, each piece infused with its own previous character but with a new function. The results are fresh, innovative and inspiring. And Katie ships worldwide!

This set of old, broken weighing scales have been reborn as a clock- I love the colours and pattern
These colourful milk pails make fabulous retro stools!
This old solid wood rack was previously used in a sorting office for mail.

Baileys Home and Garden, based on Whitecross Farm in Herefordshire, UK, is an eco-friendly supply chain offering home accessory items old and new. You’ll love the rescued and refurbished knick knacks for the home, garden and office! Baileys favours the natural look, focusing on the stripped-back, original properties and features of a material.
“The things we sell are a surprising mix of vintage and new from a variety of sources – but they all share the qualities integral to our repair, reuse, rethink philosophy”.
The lifestyle images on their website are really inspirational . The store (a restored barn) is pretty amazing too!
