TV shows like ‘Kirstie’s fill your house for free’ and ‘Kirstie’s Vintage Home’ on channel 4 is creating a big trend about second-hand and up-cycled furniture, which gives a second lease of life to something that would otherwise end up at land-fill sites.
I am a big believer that using what already exist in this world is the greatest step that a people can do towards a better world for the future, but for me this is not the only reason I work with second hand furniture, but simply by the fact that vintage furniture have beautiful shapes and a natural finishing that gives that charm and personalisation into a space that set apart from the mass production.
At the moment I am a big fan of Stag Minstrel range, they have beautiful tapered legs, bevelled front drawers and the signature ring handles.
I work with Annie Sloan chalk paint, which is also very sustainable with low VOC, no smell, water based and fast dry; to give a vintage shabby chic finishing, with or without the distressing look.
Bellow you can see one of the very sought after Stag furniture, the dressing table, with a versatile use around the house. It can be used as sideboard in the dining room, or as console table in the living room and hall, or as a desk in the home office and obviously as dressing table in the bedroom. The only down side is to try to figure it out where to use it.
