Vintage Bureau Desk “Sakura”

This stunningly beautiful bureau has been refurbished with a Japanese theme throughout, hence the name “Sakura”, meaning Cherry Blossom.

The front of the desk, which inspired the overall design, has a decoupaged piece of Japanese art, very aptly titled “Kumoi-Sakura”, (Kumoi Cherry Trees).  The complementary colour palette of pale greens, soft golds and contrasting matte black, lifts this piece from retro to contemporary, without ever detracting from its original design roots.

Inside, the bureau boasts a lovely dainty drawer, refurbished with a mother-of-pearl front, and 4 sections for your letters, documents, and other paperwork. 

The oriental theme continues, matching the main drawer frontage to the writing shelf design. A new lock, with two keys, has been fitted, to ensure you can keep everything neat and secure. The vintage-aged gold highlights, added to the wooden carvings, finish this bureau restyle off to absolute perfection.

This delightful desk would look stunning in a beautiful light and airy bedroom, or in a home office, where it will no doubt brighten your working day.  Given its smaller dimensions, it would also work wonderfully well, in the hallway for post, newspapers, keys and other household essentials.

This truly versatile piece that’s as decorative as it is practical. It is sheer “Kanpeki”.

"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".

Beautiful Bedside Tables

The bedside tables are stunning! The seller was so nice and communicated extremely well, even though she was on holiday at the time I purchased! I said she didn't have to worry until she returned to the UK, but she still started to communicate with couriers to arrange pick-up of the items before her return, which I thought was lovely of her.

I'm extremely impressed with how quickly the seller arranged delivery and accommodated for dates I would be at home for the deilvery. The furniture is also stunning and arrived with no damages and well packaged. Extremely happy with the furniture bought and the seller. A small paintbrush and touch up paint was also included, which I thought was a nice touch.

Thank you so much! I love them.

Kraken Drawers

My new table arrived from PinkDotUpcycling at Upcite and omg I'm in love! I so miss being able to do this kind of thing myself, but cannot fault the work done to bring this table back to life and just look how stunning my kraken's bride is!! . Off to follow the FB groups now to see what other unique pretties I can find! Technically a lamp table, but us three being shorties means it will work just fine for crafting, science experiments etc. . . Only opened up to protect the artwork and a table cloth!.
