A contemporary twist

Every time I start a new project I’m astonished by the beauty and resilience of wood. As you may also see from my up-cycling and modern finishing portfolio I’m a huge fan of statement colours. Now it is my job to see whether these two work together in a contemporary fashion.

I’m a aspiring furniture designer and maker but not of the old guard. I’m a trained interior designer and like to push innovation wherever possible. Let’s hope I can come up with some fresh colour schemes which stand out from the crowd.

I’ve added a few select concepts from the global up-cyling community and will most definitely be trying most of the below.

I personally feel the dipped look with exposed wood looks awesome. The only time I paint a full item of furniture is if it’s past my restoration skill set. Though if I do fully paint then the two tone concept with dark and light works so so well.
