The Plastic Baroque by James Shaw promises to get your inner Play-Doh-loving self drooling. The furniture in The Plastic Baroque line was created by using a gun that turns thermoplastics into colorful and playful furniture. Each piece combines paper-mâché and a pewter gun to get that green and blue Play-Doh look. These thermoplastic compounds are piped down the edges of the furniture which holds each item in place.

James Shaw notes, "[The Plastic Baroque is] based on the idea of sustainability, the gun is a thought-provoking way that can create a finished piece without creating more waste." At the end of the day, this furniture line was created with the recycling focused design movement in mind. James Shaw mixes eco-friendly materials with design conscious aesthetics to create a one-of-a-kind line.
