On eBay you’ll find a huge selection of retro, vintage suitcases for sale. Typically, they are available for few dollars each—most people just want to get rid of them so they’ll stop clogging up the attic. But that’s only because they don’t know how to turn their vintage luggage into a vondrous do-it-yourself suitcase drawer dresser.
Making the dresser requires having the suitcases first. You’ll need those to measure the height of the shelves. From there, follow the instructions at ManMade.com.

Somehow, the alternative furniture makers over at LoveSac managed to create a furniture material that’s soft while also being durable, washable and completely, utterly, ridiculously lucious.
Eskimo Phur (not related to actual Eskimos) can be used to cover most of the sofas, loveseats and cushions in LoveSac’s furniture lineup. If you don’t like the color simply replace it with something new.
