Recycled Shopping Cart Chair

Recycled Shopping Cart Chair

Taking everyday objects and turning them into chic pieces of functional design takes wonderful form in reestore’s “Annie the shopping trolley” chair (yes, it’s British).

Taking carts that were landfill bound due to missing wheels or bent legs, designer Max McMurdo works his magic and “poof!” they are pieces you’d love to own. Reestore attempts to “avoid traditional eco materials in favor of contemporary finishes, fabrics, and, above all, style.” Job well done.

This is a funky cool chair for teenagers - I love it. But here it would be a challenge to find an old small cart to convert.
