Roch Furniture

Just before my internet access went awol I was planning on introducing some of the clever folk I get to work with at the Welwyn Garden City Craft Market. I like what they do and thought you may be interested too.

Roch Furniture is based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire.

Roz and Rachel select solid wood furniture and restore it into beautiful items that would look fabulous in any home.

Each piece is handpainted and waxed.

Some items are finished with decorative handles and knobs.

Whilst others are decorated with beautiful wallpaper.

I have picked my favourite pictures from their collection but for more information and plenty of other items of furniture have a look at their website.

I think they are just so clever to have the vision of what each piece can look like with hard work and good taste! I have to repeat - definately good taste - you see the first picture, well I thought it looked familiar when I first saw it in person at market, turns out that I have a cupboard the same but in its original, still needing tlc state! One day I shall treat it to a makeover but for now it blends in with the rest of our 'worn in' furniture!

Next time I am at Welwyn I shall corner another clever crafter and show you what they can do! I am off to walk the dog now in the mist and rain - don't know exactly what happened to the sunshine that was forecast for the weekend!

Take care all, til tomorrow
