Make space for a statement sideboard in your home

Add caption

People who have visited my shop, or have followed me on social media and this page, will know I have a bit of a sideboard-fetish. I just think they are so timeless and stylish and would make a statement in any modern living room or dining area. Pair it up with some eye catching artwork or blown up photos, your ceramic collection and a nice lamp - and you have a stylish look nailed.

Below the sideboards (and other mid century pieces) I have in stock right now. If you want to have a closer look, please get in touch to make an appointment (no obligation to purchase - viewing is just fine!)

Trash to Treasure workshop Sunday 30 November

Do you want to learn how to paint furniture AND recover a seat all in one day? Sign up for the one-day workshop 'Revamp a Chair' and go home armed with a whole set of new skills and a fresh looking chair.

In the morning we will paint a chair using Rust-oleum chalky furniture paint, creating either a smooth or a distressed finish. Then after lunch we will tackle the recovering of the seat pad, using new foam and fabric. Bring your own fabric or choose something from our stack of remnants. 

Sunday 30th of November, 10am-4pm

£100, including materials and lunch

What to bring:
Please bring your own kitchen chair and choice of fabric to cover the seat. Also, if you want to make the most of your time, remove the old material and any staples/tacks as this can be time consuming.

Want to take part?
Please sign up by emailing
