Giving a Vintage chair new life – Matthew Williamson

Old becomes New

An activity that has been on the rise as of lately among crafters and designers is vintage renewal, or repurposing. For any of those confused we’ll elaborate. It is when you take something old, and possibly without much use or out of date style, and add a touch of craft or modernity giving it new life or purpose. The practice is becoming more and more popular as the desire to not waste, or support cheap unethical creation becomes more center stage.
