Wow what a find, an Aladdin’s cave full of funky, classic, modern furniture and decor, from lovingly restored classic pieces to items that have been funkified, reupholstered and painted. As a photographer it is now my first point of call when I need a new prop for a photo session. Shop owners Alexa and Rich will give you ideas and work with you to bring fresh new life to a tired, old piece of furniture. Very friendly owners and amazing pieces of home decor, well worth a visit. — Beth
Ever thought of giving your own furniture a new lease of life? Or maybe you have been meaning to tackle that project but don’t have the time?
Good news! We can help! We’ll work with you to create the style and look that you desire for your home, without shelling out on brand new furniture.
Upcycling is adding value to an unwanted item to make it desirable and attractive.
We use a range of designs and techniques to upcycle tired and unloved furniture including painting, distressing, stencilling, decoupage and upholstery.
We have a dedicated shop space with a vast variety of classic, vintage and retro pieces in their original state, from gorgeous antique mahogany to more modern pine furniture.
What we don’t have in stock we can look out for, so it’s always worth chatting to us about your needs.
We hoard loads of fun bits of fabric ready to use in our transformations. We work with modern upholstery materials and always ensure that we comply with the current fire safety regulations.
For bigger projects we’ll happily source the perfect fabric on behalf of our customers from reputable suppliers.
We always ensure that the furniture we transform is structurally sound and will fix any wobbles or loose bits.
Furthermore we can restore damaged wooden surfaces to its former glory by sanding it back to bare wood and then finishing it with lovely hard wearing oil/wax products which are water and UV resistant.
Not sure about the colour to choose for your furniture? We can come to your home and advise you on what will work well in your space.
We can also colour match to any other furniture, carpets or curtains, and make suggestions on the perfect finishes and decoration for your furniture.
We accept most good quality, solid wood furniture which would otherwise have been discarded.
If you have a number of furniture pieces to dispose of we can arrange a home visit to view and advise on which pieces we can clear or buy.
