Art & Deco

Home sweet home… well I suppose we all like to live in a decent place with nice things around us, however I am going to propose that ‘nice things’ should be something personal and ecological, may that be recycled, up-cycled or created from scratch doesn’t really matter as long as we like it and it makes our home feel like the best place to be, or like William Morris said: “have nothing in your house which you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful” Eco Design Umea have created these objects which can be used around the house or created as personal presents to loved ones.

Old bottles and some left over household paint? well together they make pretty & decorative ornaments which you can use as vases, candle holders or simply as decoration.

old objects like yarn winding tools can be transformed into beautiful and original plant pots, just remember to seal the wood on the inside or water will leak when you water the plant…

Another tip is to check out containers near building sites because when large companies do their refurbishments they often throw away objects; like these industrial lamps, without being faulty -and you might be the lucky one to pick them up so they don’t go to waste!
