It seems everywhere I looked last week, someone was talking about Ruby Rhino. Or perhaps the design trio – Hannah, Luke and Gavin – are just doing really well on the social media front (I have spent a lot of time glued to Twitter recently – here’s their page).
Whatever the case, the point is that my attention was drawn to them – possibly by the fabulous name – and the first link I followed took me to this gorgeous upcycled table. The top is made from an old door. Isn’t that clever?
The store sells antique, vintage and upcycled old furniture, so every piece is unique. They also provide bespoke items, so if you don’t see anything that’s quite what you’re after, they can source and make up something just for you.
I love upcycling, not only because there’s something lovely about a piece of furniture with a bit of history, but because I really hate the throw away mentality that so many people subscribe to. So well done Ruby Rhino, on being both green and stylish!
