With over 20 year’s experience in transforming old furniture items into must-have pieces for the home, Glen Sheldon has the skills, knowledge and passion to help you in your furniture restoration journey
Through upcycled furniture, our customers are able to get the most value and use through the years from furniture pieces. Instead of the core material and the entire item being discarded, they become useful again whether for decoration or for something people can directly benefit from.
Because the furniture is now useful again, there will be less waste that will end up in the landfill. In addition, there will be less pressure to extract raw materials from the environment whether for the assembly of the furniture piece or for its packaging and delivery. This can directly help our forests to recover and even remove the incentive for cutting trees in the first place.
With this approach to maximizing value and use, we also actually benefit from the upcycling of furniture. With the craftsmen’s creativity plus your commitment to sustainability, it will always be easy to transform the old furniture into something new and functional again. This is especially the case with antique pieces that hold huge sentimental and financial value. It’s almost impossible to let them go and actually it is wasteful to let the valuable material end up in a landfill or incinerator. With upcycling and application of human creativity and ingenuity though, that asset can be transformed into something that’s even more valuable and useful.
This is like giving another decade or more to the usefulness of the piece. Moreover, our craftsmen can make it bespoke for your requirements and preference. You will feel proud both to have a bespoke furniture piece and to be aware of reducing environmental impact. Yes, it’s possible to achieve both economic and environmental goals through creativity and the dedication of craftsmen and customers. This is a practical way of creating value that lasts because we’re not taking more from nature but actually we’re trying to save it. When something becomes useful again, we benefit both ourselves and the environment.
