17 Quirky Couches Made from Repurposed Materials

You know we love uncovering new uses for everyday things, and we’re all over the world of upcycling, repurposing, and the like. Today, we’re excited to highlight some serious innovation from all over the web. These 17 couches have all been made from repurposed materials, from the trunk of a ’57 Chevy to 6,400 nickels. Enjoy!

1. Vintage Car Couch: First up, a vintage car turned into a gorgeous piece of modern furniture. We love the whole setup here, especially the tires as decor. (via Furnish Burnish)

2. Bath Tub Sofa: Combine the two most relaxing places in your home into a bathtub couch. (via Reestore)

3. Fridge Couch: That’s right. This company turns refrigerators into seating. Our favorite part is definitely the built-in side table. (via Fridgecouch)

4. Cardboard Couch: Finally, a use for all those Amazon boxes you’ve been stockpiling in the garage :) (via Fernando and Humberto Campana)

5. Pallet Couch: This colorful number is made from a whole bunch of pallets and cheap Ikea mattresses. We love the sectional look. (via Brit + Co.)

6. Phone Booth Lounger: This sort of looks like something that would happen if a hurricane hit London, but we’re digging the playful vibe. (via Recyclart)

7. DIY Sod Sofas: You can always DIY it up with a little sod!! (via Dornob)

8. Faceted Cardboard Couch: How gorgeous is this faceted piece? And yes, it’s made out of cardboard! (via Lazerian Studio)

9. Recycled Fabric Scraps: This one screams shabby chic. The upholstery was made from a whole bunch of recycled fabric scraps. This would be a great way to update a flea market find. (via freshome)

10. Recycled Cork Lounger: This picture might be too dreamy for just any old cardboard lounger, but we are totally ready to get lost in that landscape. (via Daniel Michalik)

11. Crib Couch: These bohemian interiors have more than color in common: Both feature couches made from old brass cribs! (via Flickr + Zuniga Interiors)

12. Nickel Couch: We’re not sure that using coins to create a couch counts as upcyling. This armor-like piece was made using 6,400 nickels, setting you back $320. (via Superuse)

13. DIY Clawfoot Bathtub Couch: Thanks to Instructables, you can actually learn how to make your own bathtub couch. Win! (via Instructables)

14. 1957 Chevy Bel Air: This trunk couch would make an incredible prop for a DIY photo booth, don’t you think? (via New Retro Cars)

15. Outdoor Daybed: Can we please live in this outdoor scene? We’re really digging the use of pipes as the edges of the daybed. (via Prudent Baby)

16. Bike Seat Sofa: And the award for least comfortable looking repurposed couch goes to… ;) (via DIY Freak)

17. Boat Stern Couch + Sail Cloth Pillows: Finally, a nautical hack. This little loveseat is made from the stern of a boat and is decorated with sail cloth pillows. So beachy. (via New England Home)
