This modern furniture art project by Ramon Coronado was inspired by the challenge of turning an everyday object into a new everyday object. For the project, referred to as Mercado Negro (meaning Black Market), Coronado chose a grocery cart and, amazingly, transformed it into a seat and table. And, perhaps just to show off, he made a swing and a lamp too.

Mercado Negro is a great example of potential ecological solutions for leftover objects from everyday life. For more photos of the transformation behind Mercado Negro, check out the links below. Stats for Grocery Cart Furniture Trending: Older & Chilly
