Upcycled Furniture & Art by Mali



Surely, you’ve heard of upcycling?

I’ve noticed during all of my travels and moves in life – that once you start to collect and have a sizable crystal collection, the issue of where to put them presents itself with an ever more persistent voice. 

The idea is to re-do, re-invent and re-create existing or older pieces that you already have, have inherited or acquired at a flea market.

The inspiration for the pieces shown here is to showcase your crystals at home.

*From Wikipedia: Upcycling, also known as creative reuse, is the process of transforming by-products, waste materials, useless, or unwanted products into new materials or products perceived to be of greater quality, such as artistic value or environmental value.




Upcycling makes an important statement about being mindful of consumerism and waste. These are products that existed before, and are being given a new life. 

All of the pieces pictured here are available to buy. You may see the whole range from here.

If you have an idea for a bespoke piece, kindly leave us a message in the form below. Perhaps it can be created for you

    About Mali

    Mali’s art is inspired by world travel, especially repeated trips to the Southwestern US to Albquerque, Santa Fe, Sedona, Tucson, Taos, Phoenix. Nature and natural rhythms, colors and palettes are the basis for her painting. 

    She uses watercolor and acrylic incorporating techniques she has learned and perfected throughout her career. Giving new life to existing pieces of furniture is something she came into while decorating and redecorating homes of her own and in contractual work for other homeowners. She continues to paint and create new pieces in her studio in Dogliani, in the Piemonte region in Italy.
