Reestore Max – sofa made from a vintage bath tub


You might well have seen Reestore on the TV show Dragon’s Den, looking for investment for its recycling/design business. I can’t recall if it got the cash or not – but with brilliantly quirky designs like the Max sofa, it should do just fine.

Max is typical of the company’s work, home design made from surplus household and industrial items. The perfect recycling business if you like. And Max uses a vintage roll top bath, mixing the old cast iron with newly-added upholstery to create a unique piece of seating for two.

Available online, it retails for £1,480.

    That is so neat! Such an interesting idea… doesn’t look very comfortable, though. And I’d feel awkward using it as a couch; for some reason it wouldn’t feel sanitary. But it’s cute!

    That’s so cool!
    Sadly, it’s not an original idea, however.
    Audrey Hepburn had a bathtub sofa in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

    You can get a real couch for a lot cheaper (and a lot more practical) than that!
    That’s like putting a pink ribbon on a rubber rat and selling it as a French Poodle.
