Furniture Designer Rupert Blanchard Turns Discarded Drawers into Stunning Storage Units | Inhabitat

For most people, a discarded drawer is just junk, but for furniture designer Rupert Blanchard, it’s a challenge. From his East London workshop, he transforms landfill-bound street finds from many eras into stylish, functional and in-demand tables, chairs and storage units for modern living.
