All kind of poufs (cubes, round poufs or bench poufs) made by design studio Ricrea ( represented by the trio Angela Mensi, Ingrid Taro and Cristina Merlo ). The studio is well knows due to the unique furniture collections made out of industrial left-overs: latex and materials coming from the shoe industry.
Ricrea collection offers not only poufs but also sofas, armchairs, benches, vases, all hand-made in Italy. The poufs below are using industrial waste and it is said they are very confortable. Everything is handmade and recycled from
car tyres
that were previously cleaned and painted. Via here.

LegendBlues, antique style furniture and old jeans recycled

July 4th, 2011 - 
 

All jeans tell a story. Your first concert ever, the first kiss, a nostalgic journey and a lot of treasured moments you keep in your heart. Furniture designer Liz Richardson of LegendBlues thought of even more: what if we could transform these pairs into something that could last longer?
You will have all your memories near you. So, in 2009, the designer created a furniture line using recycled jeans and old furniture combined: pillows, chairs, armchairs, ottomans and accessories. In the meantime, she works with a team that handcrafts each chair out of solid Northern Soft Maple. This wood was choosen for its fine hand finish and its
quality but you, as a buyer, you can choose from from 6 wood finishes and nails in either brass or pewter. Also, you can ask for a full customization: sending your personal jeans and asking for special pockets to be built: for your iPod, remotes or other belongings. For an addiyional fee, you will have a nice embroidery also.
