The drums’ perforations serve as a matrix to design colorful ethnic decoration patterns, inspired by traditional embroidery. Geometric patterns can be created with colorful threads, thin ropes and small pieces of yarn.
Merging the industrial style with traditional ethnic motifs, each metal drum is topped off with a comfortable, colorful and soft cushion. A hidden storage space for odds and ends around the house is a big plus.
Ottomans made of recycled old washing machine drums and decorated with natural fabrics are eco friendly products, perfect for creating attractive and stylish interior decorating in green living spaces. Junk Munkez’s products was demonstrated at the recycled art and design exhibition L’Atelier Fanfreluche in Beirut. They offer an inspiring idea for DIY project and resourceful interior decorating.
