Gorgeous Upstyled Furniture for NZ Homes   

Gorgeous and affordable upstyled furniture is now available for purchase from Gift Hutt. Gone are the days where upstyled furniture was a way of making do with what you had. Nowadays the upstyled look is more of a lifestyle choice rather than necessity. Our furniture designers enjoy creating new and unique pieces of furniture such as coffee tables, side tables and stools. They spend hours hunting for the perfect piece to restore and then choose the perfect finishes to match each one.

Unique Upstyled Furniture

Upstyling or recycling furniture has been incredibly popular for several years now. It is true its origins are in the making-do with what you have category, rather than buying new. But with the growing popularity of the retro style, the rise of upstyling furniture was only a matter of time. 

We are finding that this decorative style is popular with people from all walks of life. Lawyers, teachers and shop assistants all love the texture of the distressed paint. They also adore the unique finishing touches our artists place on each piece they make. It is this one off uniqueness which we find customers especially enjoy. Being able to collect original pieces definitely appeals too!

Chalk Paint and Shabby Chic Furniture

Vintage colours and styles are in demand nowadays. Unfortunately, as demand increases for the older pieces, they become scarcer and more expensive. That’s one of the reasons why upstyling furniture has become so popular. The relative low cost of purchasing a revamped table or chair is much less than buying one made in the early 1900s. Our craft makers use a range of paint types and painting techniques. Chalk paint gives furniture a shabby chic appearance. It is widely used to help draw attention to carving and small details of handles or drawers. Often the sides of a table or chair are given a distressed look too.

We currently have two main suppliers of upstyled furniture: Upstyled Old to New and Purple Carrot Furniture. Both artists enjoy reclaiming furniture which has seen better days. They then transform it into more appealing and fresh versions for modern homes. The quality finish of each piece is incredible. We would love to help you choose a piece for your home.
