10 years of Upcycling at reelfurniture deserves a new look-please view and ‘like’

So after 10 years of reelfurniture and many new designs beyond the original it needed a new footprint, a new brand, so here is David Meddings Design a brand new wordpress site and blog. It was back in 2001 at the Norwich Festival that I demo-ed a rather rough looking rocker made from  aReel Rocker recycled from cable drum

discarded cable reel, (picture on film somewhere) the response was so positive that reelfurniture.co.uk was created. And for the web – well a cable reel is a simple bolt together affair so inspiration for a self assembly Reel Rocker, flat pack worldwide.
