Breathing new life into vintage pieces is an important aspect of green and sustainable living! After the past difficult times I am sure there is a new revitalised move to reduce “waste” and stop beautiful “brown” furniture going to landfill.

These pieces are all preowned items, they often show the marks and scars of having a previous life

Preloved to Reloved

Preowned- this item has been preloved in the past maybe fell upon hard times but has been refreshed all ready to be reloved.

Please note that I refinish and hand-paint these items  myself . Please expect a few imperfections!

Please have a look at our website- ColonyChic 

Contactless collection is very welcome!

Buyer to collect, but we are happy to work with a courier of your choice. If you need any help I will try to find some quotes for delivery for you!

"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".

They fit in with the decor perfectly and are beautifully restored. They arrived well packaged and in perfect condition. I would not hesitate from buying from Upcite again and would definitely recommend".
