a story of life reimagined
Upcycle Studio was founded in 2020 as a result of the pandemic and offers good quality, sustainable furniture and textiles that compliment a contemporary home.
Over the past couple of years, we have refined our processes to ensure that our business is eco-friendly and our finish not only looks good but lasts as long as you love it!
I didn't choose the upcycling life, the upcycling life chose me!
I'm a teacher by day and chief sander by night and have steadily mastered my craft.
Come rain or shine, you'll find me outside stripping back years of varnish, lacquer and grime to reveal the beauty of each piece.
The past year has taught me so much about furniture, and I love being part of the restoration process to bring back its original beauty, or create something completely new.
Following two GCSEs, an A-level and a degree, I became fully qualified in textiles… but naturally pursued a career in marketing first!
Six years in marketing was put to an end by furlough and, armed with a creative eye and fascination with social history, I took a more natural step into the world of upcycling.
I'm now a qualified Interior Designer and love bringing this knowledge into my upcycled pieces.
