YELLOW PIGEON VINTAGE
Refinished Furniture and Period & Eclectic Homeware
Welcome to Yellow Pigeon Vintage! I am a sole trader specialising in restoring and upcycling vintage and antique furniture, trading since 2016. I have been painting vintage furniture since the early 1990's when I was a student at Art College and after a successful 15 year career in Corporate Treasury both in the UK and in Dubai, I gave up my job within a Dubai Government owned company to pursue my dream of being my own boss, running my own business and return to my roots of upcycling furniture and I haven't looked back since!
After a course in Upholstery at my local college, together with my husband's help, I started up as Yellow Pigeon Vintage in 2016 and I was very proud to have sold my very first piece of furniture to a London based Interior Designer for her own dining room! Both her and her beautiful Cotswolds home are featured in House and Garden The List. I have a number of returning customers and my client list includes artists, novelists, interior designers, Savile Row bespoke tailor 'Kent & Haste', London based boutique cocktail bar/bowling alley 'All Star Lanes', Derbyshire's Restaurant of the Year 2018 'The Lighthouse Restaurant'.
I am passionate about the environment and whilst upcycling unique vintage, retro and antique furniture and I hand pick my pieces locally where possible. Each piece is lovingly restored and hand painted or reupholstered in my workshop here in the Shropshire Hills AONB to create a high quality, classic and luxury piece of elegant furniture using only eco friendly 100% water based Farrow & Ball or Little Greene Paint Co Eggshell Paints.
Please enjoy browsing my online shop and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries. If you do not see what you are looking for I do have lots of pieces in my inventory waiting to be worked upon and I also undertake commissions locally. Thanks for browsing!
