Italian Designer Recycles Industrial Barrels into Aesthetic Home Furniture

Barrels can be a good choice of furniture because of their robust build and a form factor which looks aesthetic in any kind of interiors. We’ve seen a lot of it in the past, and now an Italian furniture design company proves it further. Barrel12 adopts a very refreshing approach to convert recycled materials (mostly old barrels) into attractive pieces of furniture. Francesca Cutini, the owner of Studiododici, is the brain behind these handcrafted furniture pieces which have their own charm.

The design studio is a pro when it comes to creating furniture (for outdoors and indoors). Whether we talk about book library cabinet, vase, pouf, home bar, coffee table, umbrella holder or even a wash basin or cooking stove; Francesca lends her unique character to each of these creations.
