A collection of creative ways to turn pallets into striking and environmentally friendly furniture designs
Pallets are everywhere. Without pallets, our distribution industries and bargain basement supermarkets would be at a loss. Their sturdiness performs a useful role in getting our goods from A to B. Once they’ve been used, they are disposed of or recycled. Increasingly, the latter is commonplace. They may be used again and again on subsequent journeys to warehouses or supermarkets.
Thanks to the internet and the price of solid furniture, the pallets that carted your favourite drink are increasingly re-purposed as furniture. Instead of being used on another trip to and from the warehouse, they form part of bookshelves, tool racks, coffee tables, and patio furniture. It is gratifying to see how something mundane could be turned into a modern coffee table for your living room. Or as a shoe tidy in your utility room.
