Following a career of over 30 years as an Art Director
in the TV industry,I have set up a small business in
my hometown of Scarborough,North Yorkshire ,where
I produce unusual pieces of wallpapered furniture.
Each piece is unique and finished to a high standard.

I search the auctions and second hand stores for
appropriate items that are need of some upcycling,
and bring them back to life,or if the customer prefers
I can embellish a piece of their own furniture,which
ever is most suitable for their requirement.The customer
may wish to choose a wallpaper of their own liking or I
would happily give guidance in this area.

Each item is prepared by sanding and priming prior to
decoration and later given several coats of varnish to
protect it, so with considerate use will be as durable as
any quality furniture. I also like to top each piece of
furniture with glass,mainly for added protection but also
because I prefer it.

It is amazing the transformation which can be achieved
with a good eye and a creative skill and in today’s
market of ‘retro’ and ‘vintage’ you could find yourself
with a centrepiece to adorn any room.
Please contact me with your wish list and I will do my
utmost to achieve it for you.
