About

I’m Harriet, I have many years experience as a hobbiest home restorer.

I have a passion for what I do and have loved turn what was once a hobby into a business.

I inherited my love of wood from my Grandpa Richard, an engineer and hobbiest wood turner, beekeeper and goldsmith. The smell of beeswax polish in the morning reminds me of sitting in his workshop watching him turn all manner of things out of any piece of wood, admiring the grain, tones and textures.

My passion for Mid-Century modern furniture and design was sparked when I inherited my grandmothers Ercol studio couch, pair of 477 chairs and the Staples Ladderax unit from my fathers childhood bedroom, all of which were lovingly restored for my first home.

I now live in a sympathetically modernised 1930's house which I lovingly restored with my Dad, it is filled with 1930's, 1950's and 1960's items which blend together wonderfully.
