Are you an interior designer?
If so I am interested to know, where do you source furniture for your clients?
Have you or your client ever considered upcycled furniture?
Be it their own furniture completely transformed or having a vintage piece sourced and bespoke finished to fit the scheme you designed for them?
Our client wanted a bookcase for her sons bedroom painted in the same Farrow and Ball colours that had been used on the walls.
We have a continuous stock of furniture ready to be commissioned here at SFS so it could be the perfect piece is waiting in our storage for you right now!
Now I’m not really a fan of the word ‘upcycled’ because it kinda sounds cheap and like anyone can do it and trust me that is not the case!
Because when done right ‘upcycled’ furniture is a sure fire way to make a room feel truely unique and give that client something literally no one else has! How cool is that?!
Shelagh bought this piece from SFS to turn into a vanity unit for her bathroom as she wanted something unique to everyone else.
Upcycled furniture has become increasingly popular and I have noticed the increase in demand over the 4 years since starting Stacey’s Furniture Shop. People are more environmentally conscious and appreciate the beauty of turning something not so pretty into something fantastic. It is also a great way to keep family heirlooms moving through generations but with a new look to match the new owners style. Vintage pieces are often much better made with strong craftsmanship unlike pieces you see on the market today. The attention to detail and intricate carvings adorned on some pieces are truly beautiful. I don’t know about you, but I know I would rather have a hand crafted solid piece than a piece of particulate board that has been mass produced.
The details on this piece are unlike those you would find on furniture today, the details upon this bedside have been enhanced further with dark wax.
If you are looking to create a sustainable interior for your client then upcycling is a great way to lean into that, you will also be able to choose the EXACT colour, design, handles, or we can apply wallpaper on the drawer fronts-or inside them, that perhaps match wallpaper you may have used elsewhere in the room!
If it is a family heirloom we can stencil important dates inside, or keep origInal hardware but mix it with a stylish twist.
Why suggest to your client a piece of furniture from a store that 5648 other designers have used that is in every other living room up and down the country!?!
We are able to paint designs to make your furniture truly unique like this Hamptons inspired stripey trunk.
Furniture is a way of creating a scheme that is truly unique for your client. I have been creating bespoke furniture for my own clients for almost four years, and I can create the same for yours!
I am able to turn something that most people would disregard into something beautiful!
