We went on a little jaunt yesterday, to the Barbican Centre for a Christmas Fair, where we saw loads of fantastic craft stalls and independent designers. One of my favourites was Out of the Dark, who take old classic bits of furniture to repurpose and recycle them. I really like the contrast of the sixties designs with the bright colours. I’d love one of these in my house.
The best bit too is that it is run as a means to train and employ young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. So recycling existing furniture and helping those who have less – double karma whammy.
