Recreate is now featuring artist Katie Thompson's suitcase chairs. Thompson takes a variety of old suitcases and turns them into some of the coolest vintage chairs you've ever seen. Take a look through the gallery for just a few examples of her suitcase chairs.

Suitcase chairs are a great way to recycle old objects into something amazingly new. These chairs have an air of antiquity with a splash of style.

Implications - Repurposing old products in order to create new products can not only be cost-effective but it can help to create one-of-a-kind designs like these suitcase chairs. Traveling has long been associated with high-class living, and thus suitcases help these chairs achieve and aura of luxury.
