Alright, so maybe it is not that comfortable, but who wouldn’t want to have one of these bad boys to show off when you have people over? I would make people take pictures in it. This old school TV chair is actually a product of the 1980s, but could easily be mistaken for a current greenovation.

This old-school television-turned-chair was found in the 1986 architecture book “Freestyle: The New Architecture and Design from Los Angeles” by Tim Street-Porter, and proves that while upcycling may be the hottest new buzzword among DIY environmentalists, this practice has a retro swagger all its own.
