CAST-IRON CLAW FOOT BATHTUB COUCH BY JILL MORRISON

Just last Thursday, a client called asking for help to remove a huge jacuzzi tub which can accommodate up to 8 people from the balcony of his just-sold penthouse. The tub is so rarely used it looks as spanking new as it was a few years ago. According to him, the cost of hoisting the tub up to the 19th floor when he first bought it is already a staggering $30,000. If only he knew tubs can be recycled for another use altogether...


Yes I know, tubs are annoyingly hard to recycle. Bulky and heavy, one can never imagine it to be used in any other context. But for those who are bold enough to make the attempt, you can take a leaf from Jill Morrison. He shows us how an old-fashioned claw-foot bathtub can be converted into a pretty stylish couch by simply cutting off one side of a classic tub and adding cushions made from recycled materials.
