Suitcase Chair.

While Katie Thompson's collection of Suitcase Chairs may not be my first selection when furnishing a home, her imaginative and whimsical creation is just plain fun. Artistic and clever, this broken old brown suitcase, having been around the block a few times, through Africa and via Dover now takes on a glamorous new functional life as a comfortable occasional chair. Using a steel reinforced internal structure, upholstered in a contemporary wide purple stripe fabric and dark timber tapered legs. The fun does not stop there, Thompson also offers an extensive range of recycled lighting and decorative accessories.
