1 Lasting imprint

This wardrobe by Antika Dubai is made from reclaimed wood sourced in India. Each bit of wood carries its original markings and colouration, making for a truly unique piece. Dh3,390, Antika Dubai exhibition, ground floor, Times Square Dubai

2 Fashion forward

The Giant Doily rug may look like it belongs in Grandma's house, but it is made from offcuts from the fashion industry. We love the jumbo crochet effect combined with a vibrant shade of purple. Dh263, www.boxedonline.com

3 Smooth as glass

Created from recycled glass, the Volcani vase is defined by its imperfections. The glass is thick, sturdy and substantial - and bound to survive a knock or two. Dh179, The One stores nationwide.

4 Elm feat

The Gaby side table by The One is made from recycled elm wood and is brimming with character and warmth, making for a beautifully understated piece. Dh799, The One stores nationwide

5 Right road

There's a ruggedness to The One's Tiro planter that is entirely befitting of a product made out of recycled rubber. We can think of no better way to keep our plants safe. Dh199, The One stores nationwide

6 Top drawer

The Nancy dresser is an ideal statement piece for an entrance hall or living room. Simple and unembellished, it is made from bleached and recycled pine wood. Dh5,495, The One stores nationwide
