Thirtysomething: Striving for Sustainability

In the world of furniture designing, Linda Käckerman and Lina Mackeprang of Hamburg-based Thirtysomething are going against the grain in the best way possible. Specializing in the restoration and repurposing of furniture pieces from the 1930s to the 1980s, Thirtysomething aims to challenge the disposable culture prevalent in today’s society.

From Trash to Treasure

The unique business approach of Thirtysomething isn’t only about recycling; it’s about appreciating the craftsmanship of past eras and giving them a second chance in modern living rooms. Each piece is meticulously restored, and sometimes reinvented, by the duo by hand, preserving the original charm while blending in a fresh, contemporary touch.

Going Beyond the Norm

However, it is not only the unique business approach that sets Thirtysomething apart. The business also hosts furniture design workshops and has plans for a sustainable interior design line in the near future.

Key Takeaways

The Thirtysomething initiative embodies the future direction of furniture design and interior decoration:

  • Celebration of past eras’ craftsmanship through preservation and restoration of unique mid-century furniture pieces.
  • Ensuring sustainability by fighting against throwaway culture prevalent in today’s society.
  • Creation of jobs through hosting furniture restoration workshops.
  • Pushing the boundaries of creativity by reinventing discarded pieces into contemporary designs.
