Recreate is a cutting edge interior design range of repurposed furniture and lighting, started by Katie Thompson in 2009.
Using pieces of discarded junk, Katie recreates a unique, recycled range of furniture, lighting and interior accessories, each piece infused with its own previous character but with a new function. By blending South African craftsmanship, with high end finishes and her own eclectic perfectionist flair, Katie creates an original end product with a new integrity that epitomizes the very best of South African design.
Katie has a beautiful shop you can browse in opposite the biscuit mill in woodstock, or you can supply her with your own pieces of furniture/random items/anything and she can turn them into beautiful new desirable pieces for your home. A selection of handmade by me fabrics are available for this, and I can’t stop dreaming of my fly away birds fabric on the inside of an old suitcase, or even covering one of her famous suitcase chairs! sigh!
Anyways definitley pop in to her shop or check out her website, she has and does everything you can imagine…and more!!
Here is one of her suitcase chairs…
