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!

Paco can also attach legs to any vintage suitcase to create a special sidetable for the living room or the bedroom.

From tennis racket to wall mirror

You can also decorate your rooms with quirky tennis racket mirrors!

From bathtub to sofa

Not every home has room for a big and beautiful bathtub, but many homes have enough space for a cool bathtub-turned-sofa!

From water tank to stool

Paco breathed new life into this old water tank by converting it into a cool industrial-style stool.

From plank to bench

Instead of settling on a plain bench, you can opt for this unexpected choice that can serve as a conversation piece!
