In the 1930's Dutch furniture designer and architect Gerrit Rietveld made a set of chairs out of crates. He said of his crate chairs:
"A piece of furniture made of high-grade wood and manufactured completely according to traditional production methods is transported in a crate to avoid damage...no one has ever ascertained that such a chest embodies an improvised, highly purposeful method of carpentry...there must therefore at long last be someone who chooses the crate rather than the piece of furniture."
Rietveld's grandchildren now sell "Crate Chair Juniors" for $415 each. I wonder what kind of container they are shipped in? Homegrown Evolution thinks it would be pretty easy to use pallet wood to make a crate chair for a lot less.
