So for the last 8 months I have been privileged enough to be a student on the second ever School for Creative Start-ups, run by ex-Dragon’s Den and serial entrepreneur Doug Richard. It has been an amazing experience, and given me (I hope) the tools and contacts to build a business around my creative ideas – and make money from them.
My business is called HUNK, and I create gorgeous, colourful upcycled vintage furniture and home accessories. My beautiful and bonkers website is being built by the doozers as I type, but in the meantime, here are some images of my designs at the event…..
Upcycled 1950′s ‘Beautility’ rosewood table and chairs – lovingly reupholstered with cabbage rose linen and given some much needed colour with splash of neon peach gloss
Neon lime ‘Dalston’ table and chairs – 1960s drop leaf table
Handmade lavender + ylang ylang scented candles in vintage cut glass
Handmade pillowcases with felt lettering
Textile collage artworks in homage to my fave lyrics! On vintage French cotton, reworked vintage frames
I love these! Upcycled vintage stools with secret compartment
Aaaand studded leopard print doilies, obviously. Cos they are making a comeback ya know
