20 Original DIY designer projects from internationally renowned designers to create natural and durable furniture of your own.

Since the beginning of time, nature has been a source of inspiration for designers. Natural Designs is part of this creative process, and offers you the opportunity to create furniture, and everyday objects, using natural materials; from mineral to plant. Enjoy a walk in the woods, or beachcomb by the sea, to unleash your imagination and bring a little nature into your home. From cork hanging lights and a slate-covered desk, to a natural wool pouffe and a birch coat stand, discover simple and elegant ideas that you can make yourself.

Aurélie Drouet loves writing in all its forms, from audio-visual projects to mainstream publishing. Her work in a variety of media, including television, radio and photography, has helped to shape her awareness of the possibilities of both images and words. After many years spent bringing other people’s ideas to fruition, Aurélie now publishes her own designs through books on interior decoration, vintage and flea-market style and designer DIY: 100% Pallet: From Freight to Furniture and Bookcases: From Salvage to Storage (Scriptum Editions).
