Before & After: A Retro Oven Turned Lounge Chair

I'm all for the repurposing of just about anything I can get my hands on, but this oven-turned-lounge chair admittedly threw me for a loop. There aren't many that daydream about being home, lounging in an old oven!

This oven-turned-lounge chair creation was fabricated by a design student at the University of Cincinnati. This piece was created as whimsy and I'm not expecting a full furniture line anytime soon, but I do like the idea of turning an item into something completely new. The real question is: would the eco-friendly factor have been higher if the oven was scrapped, recycled and reused as something else entirely?

Either way I'm pretty sure it will change the way you view those old appliances found on Craigslist or in thrift stores from now on!
