We take enormous pride in the way we restore and hand paint our furniture. All our items are finished to the highest of standards.
Where possible, the item is fully dismantled, hinges, locks are removed. Only then is it sanded or stripped. We use at least two coats of Eggshell finish, usually three, for the majority of items, with a final light distressing to allow the wood/under colours to show through. Finally it is wax and buffed to enhance the sheen.
This whole process creates a unique piece. Attention to detail is paramount. We always hand finish. This is very labour intensive, but satisfying when you see the finished product
We source furniture from all over the UK and continent, with a focus on French/continental items.
You will see from our gallery of furniture that while we consider ourselves shabby/chic, the emphasis is veering firmly towards the chic.
Our business name is inspired by our 2 lovely Dalmations, Caspar and Domino, who appear regularly in our pictures. We love what we do, and we want you to as well. As a small business we are able to offer all our customers a high level of customer service. From your initial enquiry to any purchase, you can be assured of our personal attention at all times.
If you have any questions or requests please do not hesitate to call.
