SchubLaden is a company in Berlin, Germany creating new furniture with vintage drawers. They have some ready for sale furniture, and in addition they offer customization. I love the idea of upcycling old drawers to new furniture. The vintage drawers look modern in schubLaden’s modern dressers designed by Franziska Wodicka, and each unique piece is signed and numbered.

The whole idea behind schubLaden is preserving the history and beauty of the unique drawers, while building a sturdy new structure around them making a new piece of furniture that will last for a long time. The furniture structures are mostly made out of varnished or oiled MDF boards or out of oiled solid wood.

I love this idea, and one day I will try to recruit my husband in helping me to create one of these myself…
