Vintage Industrial.

Here’s a few things we’ve been working on recently in the attic workshop – and now for sale in the shop……here.We’ve been sourcing, restoring and refinishing utilitarian, vintage furniture since we started in 1999. We do it all in-house from start to finish – hand-stripping, hand-finishing and occasionally repainting.

1950’s Steel Double pedestal desk with new glass…..

Sometimes, all a piece needs is a bit of TLC, or just a clean and polish!

!930’s oak roll top desk….

There’s an immense feeling of satisfaction, when we change something that is ready for the scrap yard (in some people’s eyes) having spent many hours working on it, and turning it into something, that generally results in comments in the shop, such as “Where do you get all this stuff”. Well, that would be telling wouldn’t it…..

!940’s steel filing cabinets with brass fittings….

1950s Plan Chest coffee table….

Collection of early 1900s deed boxes….

!930s Oak tambour front cabinet & Anglepoise lamp….

Reclaimed timber pigeon holes…..

All these pieces are on our website. Check them out here….www.discoverattic.com

New attic website on it’s way soon!

Some of you may notice that is a holding page at our main website urls – http://www.discoverattic.com & co.uk. Well, that’s because for the past few months we’ve been working on a brand spanking shiney, sparkly new buy online website (actually it’s not sparkly – we don’t really do sparkly. Or shiney!) Anyway, we’re very excited about it and very proud too, it’s looking fantastic and totally reflects what we’re about. We’ve been working with Shine Marketing (www.shinemarketing.com) who are also based in Hampton Hill. A great bunch of guys with their collective finger on the e-commerce pulse. It’ll be a few days before the new website goes live, so bear with us, it won’t be long. But definitely worth waiting for……
