If your collection of t-shirts is worn beyond repair, then turn them into a funky new chair full of memories! To create her original T-shirt Chair, Maria Westerberg wove together shirts from forty of the designer’s friends along with other once-treasured textiles to create a colorful mosaic of her personal history. Smitten with the idea, manufacturer Berhin Studios is now producing the chairs from a mix of colorful fabric pieces leftover from sofa manufacturing. The T-shirt Chair can also be purchased as a plain frame so you can personalize it with your own worn-out clothes, t-shirts and other textiles. The T-shirt Chair is the winner of the 2011 Green Furniture Award.

    I always wish I can make something from my worn clothes. I like to make something creative out of them.
