Upcycle Idol: Design by Leftovers

Miami LeftoversSwedish design duo, Linda and Jona Netsman, have adopted the trash to treasure ethos, by using discarded materials as their creative inspiration. Design by Leftovers is a vintage upcyled furniture company, selling eclectic, handcrafted pieces that come with their own unique history.

“The dream is to deliver the greatest materials and handicraft combined with past experiences and stories.” 

Leftovers ChairLinda and Jona source antique pieces from Italy and elsewhere in Europe, transforming them into fun, kitsch statement designs, using artistic techniques like patchwork and graffiti.

Collections such as ‘Runway’ and ‘People’s Leftovers’ are made entirely from preloved garments and handpicked Design Leftovers duovintage fabrics, while the ‘Miami’ chairs (above, left),  are made from reclaimed furniture.

There’s even a ‘Grandma’s’ leftovers crocheted and sourced from old pot holders! 

From sideboards to sofas, Design Leftovers have a bespoke standout piece for every room, and most importantly, every personality.
