Recreate is a cutting edge interior design range 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.
I am a fan of repurposing manmade objects to extend their life and to keep innovation alive. Katie's range of items are a wonderful example of repurposing discarded 'past their use by date' objects. These are just a few of her repurposed designs her site is definitely worth a visit.
