Rohlha Side Table

This fabulous Rolha side table designed by Goncaol Campos is inspired by age old ritual and tools for uncorking a fine wine. Presented as a DIY kit of parts, it is assembled from a solid turned cork top and 3 turned wood legs, fitted with a screw similar to the ones used to uncork traditional wine bottles. This assembly requires no special tools, and is sturdy and stable, in part due to the density of the cork. Simple in its aesthetic as well as its function and assembly. And the best part?  Cork is an environmentally sustainable material, renewable and beautiful in its natural state.

DIY Magazine Stool

Do you have an ever growing pile of magazines around? I do, and I just loved this eco-friendly repurposing project. It’s a win-win, as I don’t have to part with my most-favorite issues and articles, yet it manages the ever growing stacks that get moved from one place to another. This Magazine Stool is functional and fun. You can make your own or purchase a kit here, complete with the belts, pillow and wooden platform. Happy collecting!
