There are many ways to reuse and recycle items that clutter homes and create beautiful home decorations, new furniture pieces or lighting fixtures. Designer from France Melissa Fradie teaches how to recycle creatively and make stylish, functional, and eco-friendly products for home decorating. Lushome presents these inspiring Green ideas.

The designer got involved in Green design about three years ago. Project Garbage Design is a new look at old items that transform into amazing home decorations, unique furniture or lighting fixtures. Vintage trinkets, antiques, and other unusual items in old style are fantastic materials for recycling. Creative ideas allow the designer to give a new life to used or broken things and de-clutter homes.

Designer furniture, decor accessories, lighting fixtures, and even jewelry from Garage Design look impressive and inspiring. All these things are made of old, broken, useless items. Melissa Fradie is trying to rewrite the history of old articles, creating unique furniture, lamps, and attractive home decorations for eco homes.
