upcycled upholstered dinning chairs


Drawers delivered safely.  The chest is stunning!  Andy and I are so pleased.  Going to have to much fun filling them and re-dressing our room.

Thank you again. You have truly made something fabulous - beautiful utility!


Hi Gary,

 Thanks so much for the amazing desk that you sourced and faithfully upcycled for my eldest. She absolutely loves it and has even requested her meal at her desk as she is "so busy working".

From the moment we discussed you sourcing a traditional desk for us - to the upcycling style - discussion about wood stain polka dots - her favourite colour inside the desk - I knew it was going to be a hit.

Now the youngest would like one too; so that's your next challenge!


Hi Gary!  
Oh my god!!! I absolutely LOVE IT!!!! Seriously that is amazing.. Thank you so much!! I can't wait to get it tomorrow.. It's fabulous- the wood looks new- the colour, the detail! You have done an amazing job!! Thank you so much!!  I totally understand why you wouldn't want to part with it- I think it's beautiful!! It will be well loved/ admired and shown off.. I'm very very happy- cant wait to get it! Thank you!!! :-) 

Hi Gary,

I bought a sideboard (Orla Kiely-esque design) off you last year and I just wanted to email since, for all sorts of personal reasons, I never got the chance to sit down and thank you for the piece. It is a wonderful asset to my sitting room and something I will cherish forever. I receive countless compliments about it and was absolutely thrilled with how it turned out.
Many thanks for all your help - I am aware that my indecision was extreme at times but I'm so glad we took the time to get it right.

I hope the business is going well and I look forward to my move to Devon next year when I will hopefully have a house big enough to buy more beautiful furniture off you!

Best wishes,
Saskia Payne

Dear Gary & Joanne,
‘Many thanks for the fantastic furniture – we absolutely love it and both pieces look just right in our eclectic ‘retro’ house. The service from Gary was second to none and he even sorted out delivery for us using one of their regular couriers. Two brilliant, unique items and a first rate service all round – can’t fault it!’

Dear Gary & Joanne,

I wanted to write to express my satisfaction with the sideboard you sourced and bespoked for us. You have been diligent in your work and provided us with a super quality sideboard in a timely fashion that met the brief impeccably. I was most impressed with your customer service, communication and price. You dealt with the job in hand in a very cheerful and professional manner. I would certainly use your company again and definitely recommend you to family and friends.
Yours sincerely,

Hi Gary & Joanne
When I first saw the piece on the website I thought it was amazing, it was the kind of furniture I had only ever dreamed of owning.
I thought the price was very reasonable for the item and liked the fact it was different from other standard, mass produced items I had seen around.
Sometimes when buying items online it is hard to know what the item will actually be like but I have to say it was better than I imagined. You could tell the piece had been finished to a very high standard and I personally love having a unique item that I know no-one else owns.
I also love the fact the item has been recycled and having seen what the item looked like initially I have to say it is amazing what Gary has done with the piece and I would highly recommend his work. I am extremely happy with the item and the service I received.'

Hi Gary

WOW!!!!!wow wow wow,
Totally surpassed our expectations!The furniture is all unpacked, reassembled and placed in our room.It looks wonderful.You have done a marvelous job. It was worth the wait.
Each piece is beautiful in its own right and the wood is beautiful and the design is perfect. 
I love the knobs! I love the lemony smell from the furniture. I love how the original maker's badge is on the inside of the drawer.They work really well together. Our favourite is the lower chest of drawers. I don't know why - we like all of them though!!
I can't wait to start using them. Lots of unpacking to do now.
Thank you for doing such a brilliant job. I know you have put your heart and soul into this job. It shows.
Thanks again Gary With our very best wishes Jennie and Ed

I always find Gary an absolute joy and inspiration to work with.
Gary has a genuine passion for his art and this coupled with professional guidance
and vision turns the client’s mere thoughts and dreams into reality.
Family members and I have invited Gary back many times to undertake new projects.
We have always found the level of service second to none and the finished piece or pieces ‘fantastic!’
I never hesitate in recommending Gary, because I know that he will always undertake any study with passion, honesty and professionalism.

Dear Gary & Joanne,
!!!A huge thank you for designing me the perfect furniture for my bedroom!!!
spent ages looking on the internet and in shop windows, but saw nothing that met my requirements, until I found your website!!
It was fabulous to be able to talk and explain to Gary the exact look I wanted, and through pictures, emails and wood samples, he made the furniture to my specifications.
I am not particularly fussy, but I knew the colours and the look I wanted and left the rest to Green in Mind.
I felt like a kid at Christmas when the delivery arrived – I was so excited and I was certainly not disappointed!!!
Thank you all for your hard work and for caring so much about getting it right for me.
