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!

Another Country at Bistrotheque London

The handcrafted furniture of Another Country is elegant in its intentional simplicity. Each piece, made by hand from environmentally responsible materials. Watch this beautiful video about the craft and process of Another Country.

Beautiful to look at as well as experience. For the re-vamp of the trend setting East London restaurant Bistrotheque, Another Country was asked to provide dramatic, contiguous lengths of their Bespoke Benches with backs, finished in a hand applied black lacquer. Just look at the glorious result.

“Our designs are archetypal, calling on the familiar and unpretentious forms of British Country kitchen style, Shaker, traditional Scandinavian and Japanese woodwork for inspiration. We endeavor to re-interpret the spirit and functionality of these honest forms of furniture for a modern customer.  We endeavour to produce our product and run our business at the most sustainable level possible. We source timber that is FSC certified from either UK, European and US suppliers, manufacture in workshops in the UK and Europe, pack and deliver directly to you.We intend for our product to last and we do everything possible to give them longevity.”

From upholstered pieces, such as their Day Bed 1, which is an instant classic, to stools, tables and even accessories, their line is growing carefully and briskly. Be sure to check out their work on their website:  Another Country.
