The time has come!!

Hello,

Well I decided to name this blog, the time has come as I’ve made some decisions on the way I want Turnstyle13 and Turnstyle13 designs to go.I’ve

I’ve started to update the website that has been getting slightly neglected. I removed our stock page a few weeks ago as I think I knew then the direction I wanted to go, and that was back.

Yip!! back sounds mad as you’re meant to move forward and up in business but I believe that’s what I am doing. In any business group I’ve been in they always asked Why Did you start? and What was your reason for starting a business?, and that’s why I’m going back to the start as my big why was finding beautiful furniture that was in auctions, charity shops, given to me or even rescued out a skip. Funnily growing up you would be called a midgey raker for that. So I guess I’m a professional midgey raker : ).

The love for furniture and seeing the potential in unloved pieces and turning them into colourful interiors for your home, is the reason I’m going back to the start.

I made the decision to stop taking on work and commissions from customers eeekkk!! I said it.

I wanted to go back to create our own beautiful furniture and interiors to sell. I have been very lucky and feel grateful to have some of the most amazing customers, but while working on their furniture I have been neglecting my own container of furniture that is in desperate need of having a makeover.

I’ve add a shop to our own website which I’m going to be adding more furniture to as well as some interiors for you to buy to add a little colour to your home, I’ll also be probably doing a few markets to show our furniture, which brings me on to something else…

Crownpoint studios are having their own first pop market and yes!! its a Christmas one its 8th & 9th December 10am - 4pm so if you looking to buy from small business and shop local then come check it out.

As I’m going back to the start this means giving up my workshop at Crownpoint. I’m sad to leave the building as its an interesting building, I have been really lucky to have met and built some amazing friendships that created a great creative community which I’ll always be part of.

Some might look at my choices as crazy as I’m giving up paid work to take a chance on selling my own furniture. But that’s ok as I know that this isn’t the end… Its only the beginning ; )

Until next time

Hello Autumn : )

Hello!!

I can't believe its September were has this year went!!! Autumn is here Yeah!! this is my favourite season with the best stuff coming up Halloween, Guy Fawkes and my wedding anniversary : ) 

So I've started working on some of my own pieces of furniture with some to be added to my etsy shop over next few weeks, I have started with this lovely retro 50's style chair, I've picked the fabric for this pieces (actually picked months ago, can't help myself) So!! I chose orange woolen fabric from Bute but ironically its called pumpkin so picked the perfect season for it.

I've also just added our little bespoke footstools to the etsy shop yeah!!! you can click on the shop here on the website. Each one is different they can also be customised to suit your colour and interior taste. I'm drawn to bright colours and funky fabrics so I always like to clash colours. What would you go for?

As its Glasgow, that we live in you can't predict the weather its sunny with rain with a mixture of tropical storms, hoping over the next two weeks weather permitting that I can get down to our storage container, to up-dated the website stock page of all the new vintage pieces that we have got. If you are after something in particular or have an item of furniture that you would like to talk about or maybe looking for a piece to have a bit of a makeover, you can contact me anytime.

Its been a while

Hello!! It has been a while :) and omg!!! so much has been happening at turnstyle13 HQ.

If you follow my social media pages, you will have seen that I have taken the leap of faith and gone self employed eeekk!!. (its not fully sunk in yet) Its something that I've been wanting to do for a long time and life is to short not to take risks and go for it... So I did.

I've not been keeping this blog and website up to date so that's all going to change, with a weekly blog on whats been happening, up-dated furniture that will be for sale and new stock that will be getting a make-over by us or maybe you if you see something you like, new products added to the shop with an offer of 10% off when you sign up to our mailing list - this will be to keep you updated with our blog and the first to know of any offers or new furniture available to buy.

Footstools from the Drygate - Urbanmarket 20th Aug 2017

We have been busy over the past few months with quite a few jobs for our lovely customers, and we recently just did our first market in a while with our very own bespoke footstools, these will be getting added to our shop section for you to browse and buy, we are also considering starting up our own classes in making your own personalised footstools. You can let us know if that's something you might be interested in.
