Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Perfectly suited to the spirit of our times, this book is a spare yet stylish guide to living without wastefulness. It chimes with today’s consumer and design trends toward cost-consciousness and environmental awareness, and shows how to live stylishly by reusing and repurposing rather than buying new. This book aims to inspire a sophisticated audience not yet prepared to sacrifice great design or good style by showing both exceptional designs by leading product designers as well as offering ideas for projects we all could, and perhaps should, create. Remake It Home blends inspiration and hands-on knowledge, containing a wealth of almost-forgotten skills for using found materials, left-overs, and trash. It is organized into six sections illustrated with designs by notable young talents such as Fritz Hansen, Ryan McElhinney, Alabama Chanin, Margaret Cusack, Junk+ion, and Studio Verissimo. Included are designs for furniture, lighting and accessories, storage, tools and appliances, textiles, and cleaning and laundry. Each section highlights resourcefulness in design, drawing on global trends, modern innovations, and traditional practices that are brought together in a harmonious, thrifty, ecologically sound, and life-enriching whole.
