We absolutely LOVE:


“Finding beauty in the unloved is important to me,” says Danish designer Nina Tolstrup.  Indeed:  In conjunction with London design gallery 19 Greek Street, Tolstrup created a standout limited-edition line of day-beds, sofas, chairs, and tables using discarded seating from London second-hand shop and bolts of kinky fabric left-over from Marc by Marc Jacobs’ spring 2013 collection.” (Text and below photo from Elle).  Fabulous!!!!
