Since we are on the subject of furniture sustainability, I think it is about time we get to recycling mattresses. I admire the ottomans and chairs made from recycled mattresses. Who would have though that mattresses can be reused in such a nice way.

Mattresses can be reused. It is hard but in fact there was a contest my friend participated in on how to reuse a mattress: Discarded dreams 21.jpg width=510

I love the chairs, so inventive! I also love to rescue chairs which have been ignored and unloved and reinvent them in a patchwork of stunning fabric. If you want to see them go to http://www.kellyswallow.co.uk I love your site.
