Everything we do at reCreate Design Company is focused on one (really important!) thing – extending the lifespan of existing materials. How we go about that is as diverse as the very materials that we salvage, rescue, and redesign. Whether we’re installing our signature style of reused and repurposed interior design in an office environment, or we’re finding new users for furniture inventory that is no longer needed by companies, we’re contributing to a sustainable profile and lifestyle for our clients, our community, and ourselves. Have a look around our website and learn more about how reCreate Design Company projects and recycled designs unite the “first life” history that comes embedded in reused materials with the “second life” story-in-the-making for our clients.

how we



Today’s companies want sustainable interiors that reflect the unique personality of their business, at the same time enhancing their CSR profile. Our reclaimed furnishings and spaces create stories and experiences.


We deliver sustainable and economical solutions for surplus office furniture and supplies via our network match program with resellers, schools and non-profit organizations.


Most spaces are crying out for something unique, something that makes us stop in our tracks and say “WOW!”. We create one-of-a-kind pieces from reclaimed and repurposed materials that guarantee a double take!


Company teambuilding and school group workshops are designed to explore new ways of thinking as participants find, build and create new form and function from reclaimed materials.

Why Our Swedish Easter Looks Like Halloween

Easter like Halloween? Whaaaat? Here in Sweden our kids dress up as Easter witches - that's right, I said witches - and go door to door with a basket and a handful of drawings to exchange for candy. Sound familiar? There's a fun…

#PrayForParis. It's what's on our mind these past several days. So we hope you'll share a minute of silence with us - DIY style.     #JeSuisParis You're in our thoughts. Mike…

What's In My Bag?

We constantly laugh at ourselves when we realize the strange things we carry around in our bags. Today..was one of those days. (Svensk översättning längst ned) Admittedly, Mike's purse is more like a satchel. But it's a sure-fire workhorse,…

Take Me To Church

, ,
Cue music... Hozier's "Take Me to Church" keeps playing in my head as I flip through the photos of this glorious repurposed church - turned - home. (Svensk översättning längst ned) Sometimes it's not the repurposed designs we put into…

We really loved how much heart reCreate puts into everything they do from educating the students, working alongside them and the works of upcycled art they reCreate!
