Design Sponge September 2010

Joanne’s upcycled furniture projects already made a splash on Design Milk last week, but this particular transformation of an old beat-up dresser is too amazing to resist posting. Joanne and her business partner Anthony run Think Contemporary, an interior design firm in Dublin.

They’ve started to refurbish old furniture pieces using paint and vinyl. Vinyl decals have been increasingly popular the past few seasons, but most of the designs revolve around silhouettes and solid monochromatic shapes. I think Joanne’s use of vinyl to create a multicolor landscape over the front of these drawers gives the medium new energy, and if I lived in Dublin I would be all over this piece. I would literally grab it and hold it close, I like it so much. You can contact them about their furniture and see more work here
