RE:DO upcycled furniture by Marie-Louise Hellgren

Vintage 1950s day bed upcycled with waste textiles and styled in a purple room

I had the pleasure of meeting Swedish designer Marie-Louise Hellgren at Tent London a few years back. It was here that she introduced me to Pink One Puff, a beautiful dusky pink stool made from recycled airbag material. Since then, she has launched a collection of upcycled designs under her brand RE:DO and has been busy working on various projects, including a gorgeous herringbone flooring made from wood fibres from waste material, in collaboration with Bjoorn. Pictured above is a recent furniture piece called Day One. Crafted from an upcycled vintage day bed from the 1950s, it also incorporates waste textile and leather, as does the throw pictured.
