Repurposing and DIY are popular trending topics in the realm of design today. Once only enjoyed by the environmentally and financially conscious, wine crates have now become a popular choice of even the most discerning designers and are fast becoming one of the most lusted after household items. From upmarket café fit outs to cost-effective home furnishing, the emergence of repurposed and pre-loved furniture has taken the design world by storm.
At the moment, we are seeing repurposed crates absolutely everywhere, and almost always being used in a completely different fashion. As decorative objects, they radiate an eclectic vintage charm but can also satisfy the dedicated minimalist. From storage to planter boxes, to coffee tables and bed bases, wine crates are multi-purpose and their use and function is entirely up to the decorator.
Flexibility is key. Depending of course, on your needs, wine crates can be screwed together as solid and environmentally friendly furniture items such as a stool or chair to aid in those moments if you have spontaneous visitors and lack in adequate seating. They are also great as intermittent furniture, especially if you need a little bit of extra time before you decide on those expensive investment pieces for your home.
With your artistic freedom and license in tow, you can paint the crates different colours and add different textures such as fabric, glass and steel. Go on, let your hair down and let your creative side govern!
