This Russian couple revamp old Indonesian boats
into tropical wardrobes and cupboards
Location: Moscow, Russia
Yan and Ekaterina Averkiev were inspired when travelling
and launched ‘LikeLodka’ in 2013
They use weathered boats that are 30 to 50 years old
gathered at various Indonesian islands
DESIGNER, EKATERINA AVERKIYEVA, SAYING: "It is not only weathered. It is also rare wood of teak and mahogany. When you look at some old wood boards from where we live, say a pine board, it may not be that well-preserved inside. But if you take an old teak board and cut it, you will see that it’s brand new inside."
