Join us in a fun and educational journey that combines creativity with sustainability!

“When I spotted these drawers, it was as though they were made from my imagination. I couldn’t believe they actually existed. They arrived today by an excellent courier service. Communication was fantastic and the drawers are AMAZING!! This is the best piece of furniture I have ever owned, and I am so in love! A dream come true!! 1 million 🌟 star rating! The only drawback is that I now want to stay in the bedroom all the time to stare at them! πŸ˜…πŸ˜†πŸ˜… 😁😁😁😁😁 RECOMMEND, RECOMMEND, RECOMMEND!”

“Kirsty did the most beautiful job on my β€œnew” old office furniture. I asked Kirsty to source some specific pieces to fit into my office. The sizes had to be right, and the finish had to be an art deco style, opulent and luscious. This truly talented lady got it exactly right, I love them!!!! Beautiful pieces, that are not only practical they are sensational. Thank you, Kirsty,”
