Advises on: Introducing Upcycled Furniture to an Interiors Scheme.
Upcycling, refinishing and redesigning unwanted, outdated furniture is a uniquely 21st century solution to not only creating a new interiors aesthetic but also to reducing our carbon footprint. Interiors specialist and professional upcycler Liz Clarkson will be discussing with Ask An Expert visitors how to create bespoke room schemes based around upcycling one or more pieces of furniture, using paint and surface decor to complement their interiors vision.
