Being environmentally conscious doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on style. We love anything that has been handmade from reclaimed materials. Not only is this helping to take care of our planet, but also the result is a beautiful unique piece with it’s own story. Some of the best materials out there like, copper, concrete and wood can all be reclaimed and turned into something amazing for the home.
Here are some of our favourite items from ohwhatsthis.com made from reclaimed materials:

Another favourite of ours is, Little Deer who make gorgeous home accessories out of reclaimed copper pipe. This candlestick holder is a show stopping dinner table must. For anyone with a small bedroom space, the solution can be a free-standing wardrobe pole. This copper one is perfect for adding practical style to your room.
For a modern industrial look we love these bedside tables made from reclaimed scaffolding wood, sourced in London!
We totally believe in investing in reclaimed furniture like this. It may seem expensive at first, but once you see the craftsmanship involved in making each item, you’ll see the price is no longer important. The best thing about it is, no one else will have it!
