I'm a sucker for flea market finds and all things salvaged, and Recreate by Katie Thompson is a phenomenal example of turning trash into treasure. Using pieces of discarded junk, the South African designer creates one-of-a-kind furniture, lighting and home accessories that need to be sold in the States! No word on the prices, but my birthday's coming up (hint, hint!).

Thompson created this lamp from an old Hoover floor polisher. Brilliant!
