The work of Leo Capote will have people questioning their own classic furniture pieces in no time. Not only will them seem more boring, they may even be regarded as a bit of a waste. Leo Capote creates his designs by upcycling discarded items such as hammers, shovels and even pool balls. Yet instead of looking kitschy, his furniture designs are pretty chic.

Based in Brazil, working with such materials is only natural for Leo Capote. According to Neatorama, "That's because he worked in his grandfather's hardware store for 20 years before going to college. So he knows how to improvise." Undeniably playful, Leo Capote's creations will nevertheless add an artistic touch to any living space.
