What’s our passion?
We care about provenance, whether it be reviving old furniture, or restoring life to your land.
We love a place that works well to create ‘flow’, that can be vibrant, beautiful and enjoyable.
Yes you can afford our services
Many people may feel that engaging furniture upholsterers, landscape planners, or designers is costly, intimidating or unnecessary.
What can make the difference between a ‘great’, and ‘less than ideal’, is collaboration, skill, good communication, and the provenance of your unique landscape.
We will work with you to identify and prioritise your needs and help find a solution that you will love. Whether using renovated pieces or coordinating the colour scheme of your interiors, or bringing life back to the soil and emphasising your local flora, we will be able to bring both cost savings and authentic designs. This could be a small project such as upholstering a much loved chair, restoring your favourite wicker piece, devising a plant list for your garden, or planning for the recovery of your soil’s health.
We are friendly, approachable, used to listening, and competitively priced so we expect that you will feel comfortable to discuss your idea with us and bring your project into reality.
