Here are 4 nice examples of Upcycling shops in Cape Town (South Africa) that sell furniture & decor: 

Tyred: upcycles used car tyres into funky chairs and tables

REcreate: upcycled and recycled furniture and decor

Heath Nasheco art and decor items such as lampshades and chairs from recycled waste 

Green Glass: upcycle bottles into stylish drinking glasses

Wow they all look really impressive!

My favourite ones are the glasses and the tyres because they look simple but are something very unique and special :)

Do you have any of these upcycled items yourself?

Hi Nathalie. I actually just recently bought a glass cutting kit so that I can make my own glasses from bottles, which I am really looking forward to doing.

I don't have any of the tyre seats, but have often used them at local events in Cape Town and they work really well and look great.

Do you have any nice examples from Austria?

That sounds nice :) did you by it in Cape Town? Maybe you can upload a photo when you created one of these nice glasses.

Some examples for Austria are:

Unfortunately both of them are in German but maybe you still enjoy looking at their products.

Yes I bought it in Cape Town. I will definitely add a photo once I've made some. I also got a great idea for an upcycled glass egg cup holder from the one website you suggested, so thank you (!upcycling/c18sr).
