Sleek or Trashy? Furniture Made from Discards

Creating Beauty and Function through Repurposed Materials

Would you buy furniture created from old DVDs, cracked smartphone screens, used aluminum cans or plastic bottles? What about glassware, pillows or even wallets? Pentatonic is hoping you will. This furniture and homegoods company is “turning problems into opportunities; landfill into lifestyle; trash into treasure,” according to the company’s website. It uses the world’s most abundant resource, trash, to create tables, chairs, glassware and fabric for home or office.

Pentatonic Furniture

Pentatonic makes furniture out of old DVDs, smartphone screens, and plastic bottles.

Great book to read and do was Trash to Treasures back in the ’80s. One man’s trash is another’s treasure. Now if we could get companies to make things to last a long time again we would be in business! >^,,^<
