Next time you are about to throw out that empty wine crate….think again! These bedside table have given new life to these french wine crates….by artfully stacking them and adding some turned legs! So simple once you’ve thought of it….or in this case…once Rabih Hage thought of it!

Rabih Hage is a qualified architect and interior designer, graduating in 1991 from the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. Between 1989 and 1991 Rabih worked on hi-tech commercial projects such as the TGV Train stations of Paris Montparnasse and Nantes, and the 1992 French Pavilion at the Seville Expo.

As a result of working on old buildings in Paris and renovating chateaux and farmhouses in the South of France for private clients, he learnt how to “turn a ruin into something interesting.” His latest re-incarnated ‘ruin’ is the Rough Luxe Hotel in London’s King’s Cross.

Now living in London his focus has shifted to interiors and new built architecture projects. His style of architecture is as a result of working on buildings “inside out,” brining architecture to a human scale. he now aims to introduce furniture “that is art” incorporating works by young artists in his interior schemes “melding function and aesthetics.”

Rabih has won a string of awards and competitions including the British Interior Design Association’s (BIDA) Interior Designer of the year in 2004.

  1. The crates look fantastic. The lighting really accentuates the look. Were the legs installed on the bottom crates? I’ve never seen that before.
