Power of reinvention

One man's junk is another’s treasure. Add creative flair and you’ve got some masterfully reinvented interior objects.

From the Series

Transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary. That's what drives Katie Thompson's Recreate label. Cape-Town based studio and showroom Recreate is an eclectic interior design range that uses various discarded material to create the most gorgeous furniture, lighting and interior accessories.

By combining high quality South African craftsmanship and with her own creative flair, Thompson is giving a second life to all kinds of interesting household, lifestyle and furniture products.

Recreate not only recycles unwanted goods but adds a unique creative touch to any space in your home. Thompson's trademark choice of colour, texture and finish give her designs an ever-present element of surprise. What adds to the magic of the creations is the fact that Thompson never works within established stylistic boundaries.

See Recreate on stand 108 at Design Indaba Expo from 25 to 27 February 2011.
