I heard about MetroSofa (created by David Ballinger) sometime in the past week while reading The Houston Chronicle. The article featured their British Flag Throne Chair. Pretty cute, so I decided to see what other things MetroSofa had to offer. Of course I saw more cute things and was then pleasantly surprised to read that "Renewable, Sustainable, Recyclable, Reclaimed" are some of their favorite words. Most of the furniture begins with a gently used wood frame and then the folks at MetroSofa fill it in with whatever they want or they also do custom orders (they can and will print anything on fabric!). Check out some of the items below.
Here is the British Flag Throne Chair that peaked my curiosity.
I love the Yellow Crushed Velvet Louis Chair! So bright and cheery.
LOVE the Black and Stripe Rocking Chair!
How cute is this Black White Pink Polka Dot Sofa?!?
Also, while checking out the website, I found out that MetroSofa isn't just MetroSofa; their sister sites are MetroShed (actually the Mother site), MetroCabin, MetroShip and MetroArtwork.
An example of the MetroShed. It's prefab and whatever you want it to be.
An example of MetroCabin. Another prefab item. Small guest house maybe?
And, MetroShip, is you've ever wanted a houseboat!
