Vagabond magic

How does this…

Turn into this?

Ask furniture and product designer, John Denis O’Leary, who designed the beautiful Vagabond Cabinet above, and this is what he says:

“Vagabond originated from a series of photographs I took over a 12 month period of ‘homeless’ furniture thrown out on the streets of Edinburgh. Amazed at the quality of such 'rubbish', I began to collect wood and various materials from skips and garbage bins. Vagabond is an attempt to give value back to these materials, once disregarded as worthless junk.”

Via Pan-Dan.
