Particle Transforms Recycled Sneaker Materials Into Imaginative Homewares

Particle, the Brooklyn-based furniture and decor label committed to sustainable design, has transformed 100% recycled sneaker materials into a fully-fledged collection of chairs, stools, placemats and coasters, titled “Homewares.”

Showcased during NYC x Design Week 2023, the collection, crafted by founders Amanda Rawlings and Krissy Harbert, is viable and architecturally inspired. The goal, per the brand, is to inject new life into post-consumer and post-industrial waste materials with an imaginative approach to interior and home design.

“Our inspiration for our ‘Homewares Capsule Collection’ stems from the color trends of past footwear collections,” said Rawlings. “Recognizing the potential in the industry’s waste as each season changes and new trends begin, we sought to transform it into a captivating assortment that aligns with our aesthetic vision for our homeware collection.”

Harbert added, “Our approach to design with our brand is centered around creating a sense of playfulness and lightheartedness that resonates with a broad audience. Whether someone is a design enthusiast, fashion aficionado, streetwear devotee, or simply looking to inject some fun into their lives, we aim to offer a product line that is relatable and approachable…Our goal is to inspire creativity and spontaneity while simultaneously promoting sustainability and eco-consciousness.”
