This Glossier Furniture Line Was Made from Recycled Products

Glossier is furthering its messages of ethical consumption by creating Glossier furniture out of used product packaging.

This idea was formed through a partnership with the Millennial-favorite cosmetic brand and designer Kim Markel, who's no stranger to making eco-friendly furniture. When asked to discuss the process, the designer said that "The packaging is broken down and bonded with other plastics in large molds, then cured and sanded until an imperfect, slightly dissolved, candy-like effect is achieved."

The finished pieces were put on display at Sight Unseen OFFSITE design fair. The featured pieces included everything the average Millennial would want in their dream home, like round mirrors, delicate work desks, gold-clad cabinets, minimalist stools and pink chairs.
