I thought a good place to start this experiment would be ‘furniture design’ or, maybe more accurately, ‘furniture redesign’. I recently started a new job at a publishing house in Toronto and made the move from a small town in Niagara to the big city.
Settling into a new apartment meant buying my very first couch (guess I’m a real adult now, yikes!) and investing in a really good coffee maker (now that I’m a real adult, coffee is very important). And while I spent many hours in IKEA and HomeSense, I wasn’t able to find everything I wanted. I decided that this would be the perfect opportunity for me to repurpose some furniture and take a shot at being a furniture designer. Here are a some photos of my attempts. Enjoy!
