tee-shirt re-use

I saw this amazing chair on TreeHugger this morning and I HAD to share it with you given I’m currently making a tee-shirt quilt out of a friend’s old college jerseys.

“Swedish designer Maria Westerberg’s T-shirt Chair won this year’s Green Furniture Award. According to the jury, “the chair weaves together a meaningful story using worn textiles. This up-scaling of the classical ‘rag rug’ becomes an unique way of upholstering. T-shirts from friends together with other textiles such as grandma’s curtains, the favourite but now worn out jeans etc, melt together visually to form a colourful symphony of one’s personal history”.”>

Now of course I’m also looking at that box spring frame with new eyes. hmm…
