About

We specialise in giving a new lease of life to furniture which could otherwise be considered past its best. Each vintage piece is carefully restored, then lovingly hand-painted, using environmentally-friendly chalk-based paints, for a classic French rustic look or elegant Swedish style.

Every item we work on is unique, not just in terms of the finish we give it, but also because it’s a one-off to start with. We love to start with something that’s looking a little sad or maybe just no longer in fashion, and then envision what it can be – and use our energy to make that vision into reality and to bring out the ‘soul’ of that particular piece.

Wood is precious, and it’s exciting to recycle something in a creative way that gives it a whole new purpose and future, and to make it into something which people want in their homes.
