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.

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.

The furnitures used are existing, modified and therefore sometimes slightly seem to grow.
