Upcycling Chic: The Bathtub Sofa

Upcycling Chic: The Bathtub Sofa

I never thought I'd use the phrases "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and "recycled appliance" in the same sentence, but I'd like to introduce you to my current furniture fascination: the upcycled bathtub sofa, inspired by the apartment of Holly Golightly.

It seems the hip elegance that suffuses Breakfast at Tiffany's has inspired more than the little black dress. In celebration of the film's 50th anniversary, check out these artisans and furniture designers who are fashioning their own versions of the clawfoot bathtub sofa featured in Ms. Golightly's apartment, with impressive results.
