NEW SHOP AND NEW BEGINNINGS

After months and months of working our little socks off we are so happy to finally launch our new shop and hire space, Bermondsey Furniture Project. 

'New shop and new beginnings' was our motto and so we were set to give the space a complete makeover before we opened the doors. We have done many, many jobs to turn it around...

The whole place has been rewired with updated electrics,  we've sanded and varnished the floors throughout, repointed the brickwork and plastered and painted downstairs.

We constructed new shelving and a staircase made from reclaimed scaffolding boards. Installed a new shower room, two toilets and a new kitchen area. The list goes on and on but you get the idea, we've worked blooming hard! We now we're ready to begin. 

Bermondsey Furniture Project will be selling reclaimed goods that are lovingly and skilfully upcycled on site, we give them a fresh look and new lease of life ready to go to their new homes. We use a whole host of techniques when restoring our furniture. Some pieces painted, others waxed or varnished or even dipped! Each piece is an exciting new project.

We also offer a bespoke service, many people have a beloved item of furniture. Perhaps its been in the family for a long time you're keen to keep hold of it but it doesn't fit with your decor and style. We can restore and even repurpose your item so it fits into your current home.

Our vision for BFP is very much for it to be a collaborative place, we are partnering with fantastic creatives to ensure the space ever changing and continually exciting.

First up we of course have the wonderful man that is Stanley, he will be offering his beautiful bouquets at the front area of the shop.

With two multi use room downstairs for hire there's loads of opportunity for exciting happenings. We have lots lined up already for this space such as yoga classes and a variety of creative workshops, stay tuned for some exciting brand partnership news on that front.

We'll also collaborating with contemporary artists, offering a variety of bold prints for your walls. The perfect accompaniment to our furniture. 

All in all if you're looking to make your home beautiful or get involved in a creative event this is the place to come. We look forward to meeting you all very soon!
