Swedish sisters Linda and Jona Netsman have a great talent for repurposing old furniture and odds and ends and totally recreating new purposeful items. Their design studio, Leftovers, produces one of a kind furniture and lighting objects that are very emotionally evocative, something that one doesn't find in most furniture or lighting designs. I chose a few of the somewhat creepy ones to share with you.
These designs are my favorite, I think. There are three of them that tell the story of an old hotel and how it felt to be there, maybe in the early 20th century.

Pretty frog, but does it really want to be kissed?

3. Spoken Leftovers
Words are more difficult to capture than belongings, so the Spoken Leftovers are creatively painted on this dresser - or anything else that brings the feeling you want to give those words.

The designs by Leftovers are all worth seeing; some of them are quite fun... and some are wistful. They do make you think about how you would have your own or someone else's life tell a story through a dresser or a sofa.
