New British Design Shown at Clerkenwell Design Week 2nd edition : TreeHugger via @TreeHugger

This chair, from a group called Made in Peckham ,is sourced, designed and built in that small area of London. The furniture is made of completely reclaimed woods which have been found in shops and on the streets of the area. The beauty is in the detail of the joinery which is done with exquisite care; there are no screws or nails, just handmade wooden dowels. The chairs are made from reclaimed hardwood and Victorian floorboards. There is also a dining room table and benches and stools made of recycled pallets. Not cheap, but given the loving care, worth the price.
