/// About

/// Mid century modern furniture reimagined.

/// Mike has been a designer for over 25 years, and now uses his creative skills to reimagine and upcycle mid century modern furniture using Formica® laminate. The combination of this classic mid century material with the warm tones of vintage furniture from the same era enables Mike to create statement pieces that stand the test of time. The beauty of the countryside which surrounds his workshop, as well as classic retro design styles, provide the inspiration for the design of these one-off pieces.

/// Mike lovingly restores each piece by hand, before refinishing with multiple coats of Danish Oil to bring out the grain, protect the wood and give a pleasing warm tone. Custom designed laser cut Formica laminate is then applied to create a truly unique item of mid century modern furniture. Although every effort is made to return each item to its original condition, it may still bear the scars of a life already lived, and it's ready and waiting for you to tell your part in its unfolding story.
