Furniture for living spaces - Up-cycling, restoration and upholstery plus storage and home function designs.
we launched back in 2010 designing functions and product curation for the short stay market turning homes into airbnb destinations.
This evolved in 2019 to creating high end bespoke furniture for clients turning their sofas and chairs into workable pieces that takes their height weight and space into account. we start with a consultation where we can check posture and comfort levels and then redesign the piece.
from 2021 we are launching a bespoke high end range of sofas and chairs which will be truly sustainable using shredded furniture going to landfill to create forms we will use reconditioned leather marquetry to cover and 33% of sale cost will go to upcycling solutions for low income families stuck on housing waiting lists pro-bono. ( we will pick up the cost)

' I have worked with Antonia on several design projects and her creativity and strong attention to detail have always been second to none. Not only she is a strong project manager with a creative eye, she always listens to the client's needs and ensures she delivers beyond expectations. I will definitely recommend her for any creative projects'.

'I have had a great experience working with Antonia. She is very creative and sensitive to the needs of the client. Her practical and creative approach is excellent showing an understanding of both modern interior design and also the classic. It i very rare a designer is able to have such a broad historical approach with a razor sharp eye to the detail. Sometimes she is able to magic up the rustic look of a Bloomsbury interior from the time of the edwardians and other times she is modishly modern in her chic and manages to finalise with a global brand which is quirky and truly her own'.
- Wolfe. Bark Review
'Antonia Clare provided design consultation for an apartment. In addition to demonstrating great creative flair, her approach was thorough, thoughtful and considered and resulted in a great series of suggestions and recommendations that I was really happy to take onboard. She is clearly very good at what she does'.
'In a difficult housing marketing Antonia prepared the house for sale - we got our asking price within 3 months (2017) after having it on the marketing for over a year 2015-2016."
