"irony" found ironing board, leather cut-offs, buttons and reclaimed mdf
awesome furniture redesign by donna walker

"The Ironing board is predominantly seen as a feminine object associated with domestic chores. The re-design of this object playfully subverts how it is perceived. By imbedding it with a masculine aesthetic, and transforming it into a stylish lazy chair, ensures that you'll never associate this ironing board with chores again."
