This modern bench/lounger was created by San Diego-based Crawford Creative Studio using sustainable, up-cycled materials. Unable to find any pre-made outdoor furniture to fit their small urban patio space, the designers chose the ubiquitous Ikea “Lack” coffee table as a building block. “They’re available used for about $4-6 a piece,” said Charles Crawford, “they’re strong, uniform and colorful, and in areas around Ikea stores, they’re basically a readily available resource. They’re like the wood of the Ikea tree.” The studio has also used the tables to make other furnishings such as clocks and lamps, and also as canvasses for artwork.
