One of the basics of green living is reducing waste, and one of the best ways to go green when thinking about furniture is buying vintage. Of course vintage is not always attractive and sometimes it's hard to make it look modern and cool if you're not into it. Enter Raval Warehouse, a design shop in Buenos Aires that refurbishes old pieces of furniture and objects into modern items by mix and matching styles to make them look edgy. But even if you're not in the city, their designs are a great source of inspiration for revamping old furniture.

For those outside Argentina looking for some inspiration, take a look at the cool looking pieces and find more on refurbishing furniture at the bottom of the post.
