Furniture Art – A collaboration between artisans

Standing out from the crowd is something I strive for in a deflated and saturated upcycled furniture market.

Ever since the upcycling/salvage phenomenon hit the TV screens the popularity of the genre is still steaming punking forward.

For the cream to rise and for your portfolio to get noticed in such a buoyant crowd you need to stand by your chosen style, set new trends and keep pushing your skill set. Don’t get too comfortable.

The last 6 months in the upcycling world has produced some really breath taking pieces and with such a high standard to compete with it certainly does keep you on your toes.

One of my main aims is to get high end upcycling in front of interior designers and architects and for them to take what we do completely seriously. Our genre is an art form and the recycling element cannot be dismissed.

My Furniture Art range came about when speaking to artists who wanted more exposure, different genres to showcase their work on and my personal love for art in all forms.

If the artist is local or willing to travel then we can produce the work in house directly onto my refinished piece. If i’m working with an artist slightly further afield then I use a great company called vinyl revolution who print for me to apply – https://www.vinylrevolution.co.uk/
