If you want to go back in time to the Victorian era then these furniture would surely help you do that. These stunning pieces of Victorian style furniture have been designed by Swedish design duo Jona and Linda Netsman of Design by Leftovers. They have used designer fabrics from old and used garments to come up with all these pieces of Victorian sofas and chairs. So, basically these furniture are created from recycled garments. The theme of these creations “pre-loved can be re-loved”, tries to give you the sense of a bygone era by designing furniture that were used then.
The designs of these Victorian era furniture have been done by Swedish designers Linda Netsman and Jona Netsman of Leftovers. They are quite well known architects working in the field of interior design as well as other aspects of home building. They believe that old, forgotten and discarded can be reborn, that everything has a timeless value about it. With these creations of theirs, they are just trying to recreate that timeless magic furniture once had. According to them, each of their creations has its own story to tell. For some of the pieces, such as, Rockstar, they have teamed up airbrush artist Tomas Andersson for the most stunning visual effects.
As has been mentioned, all of these stunning pieces of furniture have been created using recycled materials. They have only used fabrics from old and used garments to create these stunning beauties. But they have not just recycled old garments. Some of their creations, such as the Grandma collection of sofas, have been made entirely out of old pot holders. All of these pot holders have been handcrafted by “a grandma” Anna-Stina. Therefore, these furniture doesn’t just look good, they also carry an important message given the times we live in.
The fab factor
The look of these furniture are undoubtedly stunning. Every piece of sofas, divans and chairs carries with it some design features that are quite rare to see in today’s furniture. The furniture are all multicolored, which gives some sort of a Kaleidoscopic effect to them. All of their pieces are classic in design, but they also have contemporary design features incorporated into them. So, with these pre-Victorian furniture, you get the best of both times.
