Sonning RG4

This eye catching, unique African hand carved chair in solid dark wood has been cleaned thoroughly and had lashings of dark wax and clear wax applied.

An occasional chair of a simplistic two plank construction, it is also known as a palaver chair: a traditional piece of African furniture which was once used as a birthing chair.

It is beautifully handcrafted and decorated with deep carvings around its simple form.

It really is an interior design dream! What a talking piece this would be with its beauty and history on display, gracing the corner of a living area or hallway.

"They are beautiful. I don’t like to match furniture and love mish mash, quirky and odd looking things lol. I absolutely love them. My house is 203 years old and is grade II listed. I think it makes an old cottage come alive and puts a modern twist on it. I love furniture that tells a story or gets people talking at a house party".

Bought Vintage Bench

What a discovery I made the day I found the Upcite site. A myriad of different styles and designs on recycled furniture gives endless and unique choices. I went for a simple but beautifully restored little pew, with which I’m delighted. Thank you Upcite and may you go from strength to strength

Drinks Cabinet

This is the first time I have purchased from Upcite. I bought a gorgeous little cabinet to go in an alcove in my lounge. The cabinet has been upcycled really well but still retains its original character. It will bring a touch of mid century glamour to my lounge
The service was very good and communication throughout the process was excellent. I will certainly check Upcite in the future when looking for furniture.

Vintage Drinks Cabinet

I have just unpacked the drinks cabinet now (I was out yesterday) Please thank the delivery driver, who arrived before the designated time! (When does that ever happen!) The photos are to show that it is safe. The packaging was on point. I will send pics when the cabinet is in its new home (extension- kitchen/living room). I absolutely love it. Please let Fi know. Thank you so much for the special service that you have provided.
