Gallery: ANNIE Shopping Cart Chair from Reestore

 

“Annie” is a shopping cart turned into a comfy cute chair from reclaimed design gurus Reestore. We’ve all seen old decrepit shopping carts left by the side of the road, and it is a sad, sad sight. Thats why we are touched to see UK designer Max McMurdo taking an interest in these old cast-offs and restoring them to life by turning them into bright and cheery furniture. Old shopping carts often meet their demise when they are given the boot due to unaligned wheels or exposed wire. Happily, McMurdo is able to ‘reestore’ life into even the most battered old trolleys, transforming them into a beautiful yet functional collection of chairs.

+ Shopping Cart Chair from Restore – £650
