We're in the height of summer vacation time, but not everyone has the time or money to take a trip across the globe. If you're itching to satisfy your wanderlust, or even just get a taste of the jet-setting lifestyle, take a look at these amazing upcycled furniture pieces, made of discarded luggage.
Capetown-based designer and artist, Katie Thompson of Recreate, uses found objects to create a stunning line of recycled furniture. Shown here, an old suitcase is reenvisioned as a charming (and worldly!) lounge. Be sure to take a look at her redesigned, found object lighting and interior accessories as well.
