New Collection :: Restored Vintage Handpainted Furniture

Wednesday, November 18, 2015

















Upcycling translates to taking timeworn and tired things (objects, not people!!) and providing it a fresh purposefulness. To a layman, basically, it’s just a paint job. But the specialists are more akin to artists, who take various components of castoff furniture and re-embody them into new arrangements.











I love vintage furniture! After lots and lots of practice painting, sanding, waxing, distressing and buffing (all by hand) I decided to try and sell some pieces. And now, I have a small section in Design5 Studio selling restored vintage furniture with hand painted details, and upcycling old belongings.























My target market is anyone who appreciates the time it takes to do something by hand to create a one off. At the moment interest is high, people are thinking more about where they're shopping, about sustainability. I don’t have fixed prices for the items and it all depends on the quantity of work required to revive the piece involved.











I restore vintage pieces of furniture with hand painted details based on Indian folk arts, botanical prints and even Mughal & Rajasthani architecture. I also add decoupage to the mix which gives my designs a unique character.





































Things are looking up as interest in my unique products is growing. I have a few orders to restore customers’ existing furniture. It really is a case of ‘watch this space’!
