Dutch designer Pepe Heykoop has created this collection of furniture by covering an assortment of old chairs in odd scraps of leather.
The leather offcuts are roughly stitched together, covering each chair entirely.

The following is from the designer:
Furnitures covered up in leather leftovers. The 25-30 percent waste of leather in the furniture industry triggered me to make something beautiful. Covers out of waste.
This project is fed by leather scrap, turning it into random skin patterns, refering to cell structures and growth in nature.
The furnitures used are existing, modified and therefore sometimes slightly seem to grow.
