LOU ROTA – Recycling chic

LOU ROTA – Recycling chic
14 March, 2009 Chocolate Creative
I have mentioned Lou Rota’s work before, when I was talking about Notonthehighstreet website. I went to Liberty today, and found her work in the store, (my favorite shop ever). I could have posted here the whole collection!!! I love it all…



Reflecting her passion for the natural world and deep-seated recycling ethic, Lou’s eclectic range uses collage and decoupage and both homemade and vintage decals to transform unloved objects into highly desirable home-wares.

Whether it’s vintage bone china or a battered French desk, a salvaged polypropylene stacking chair or a 1960s mirror, each of her witty transformations is unique… Stag beetles march across a faded chintz tea plate… Jaded chairs are overgrown with roses, nettles and thorns… Translucent black butterflies flit over foxed glass…

Visit her online shop at notonthehighstreet.

  1. Nice Article. Keep it up. But I think this is copy of your topic recycling process

    I love all of Lou Rota's work, and think they are very creative. I plan to do a project like one of her chairs for my design technology coursework, and was wondering if anyone could help explain how she does it..?!
