Chris Billinghurst

Founder, The House of Upcycling

A career including working as a professional artist, property developer and marketing manager is unusual enough, but it was having a family followed by a series of commissions to design and decorate children’s bedrooms that led Chris Billinghurst to an unexpected job opportunity. Having become acutely aware that paint products, furniture and furnishings specified as suitable for use around children actually contained toxic chemicals, Chris entered a decade of research and study, founding eco-wellbeing advice consultancy Eco Chic Interiors in 2011. Upcycling was an intrinsic element of Eco Chic’s design criteria and fast-becoming the foundation for a new professional craft movement. To support this new creative community, Chris opened Twitter’s most successful networking hour for the industry - #UpcycledHour - in 2014. #UpcycledHour became a phenomenon. evolving into the UK’s leading authority on professional upcycling for interiors, The House of Upcycling. And when she’s not out and about talking about the benefits of professional upcycling, Chris can be found living with her family in Essex and not surprisingly, apart from art, history and jazz, one of her favourite hobbies is upcycling!
