6 Recycled Pieces for the Home by Artist Paco Pili
Check out these interesting furniture and decor made from discarded items
There are many reasons why we love using upcycled furniture and decor in our personal spaces. First of all, owning vintage pieces is better for the environment. Using old materials means that you won't add to the towering heaps of garbage in dumpsites.
More importantly, there are recycled items that have more character and personality than store-bought things. Since these have been around for a long period of time, they can tell a unique story and help complete your home.
If you are looking for the perfect upcycled item, you should consider these great choices made from used suitcases, tennis rackets, bathtubs, and more by artist Paco Pili!
