Design your own custom-made Suitcase Chair

At Recreate, discarded old suitcases take on a new life as comfy chairs. Each chair is custom-made with a steel-reinforced internal structure, complementary fabric and hand-crafted legs.

We have an existing range of ready-made chairs to choose from, or you can create your own unique design from our collection of found suitcases.  Alternatively you can bring us your old sentimental suitcases to be recreated into comfy functional artworks…
