North America might be rife with second-hand stores, but Trash & Diamond is a first for the city of Beijing, China. Located in the Wudaokou neighborhood, a growing art district, it is carefully curated to appeal to its picky clientele. Although it is a thrift shop, Trash & Diamond could easily pass for a high-end space.
Clean and minimal, Trash & Diamond takes over a loft-like space with all-white walls and a gorgeous light installation dangling from the ceiling that happens to be made using 400 discarded glass bottles. The rest of the furniture also boasts recycled and upcycled materials. What makes Trash & Diamond stand out even more is the fact that all of the items on sale are in impeccable condition.
