Anne and Philippe Guilbaud are the French masterminds behind Dentelles & Bidons, where they turn old drum barrels into intricate lanterns, tables and barrel chairs.

Recycled furniture projects have a tendency to be a little rough around the edges, but the creations by this pair are nothing but flawless. It might seem like the cylindrical shape of the barrels would limit the kinds of furniture that can be created, but the Guilbauds have invented multiple styles from the same kind of metal drum, including single and two seaters.

Aside from the beautifully transformed furniture, some of the most amazing parts of Dentelles & Bidons' creations are the delicate lace-like carvings that have been integrated into the bodies of the barrels.
