This all started with a very battered and unloved coffee table that we found in a thrift store in Rome. We decided to give it a second chance, and we couldn’t stop! That table was just the first one of a long series of pieces that we found, restored, repainted and used in our own home.
A friend of us, noticing that most of our furniture was second hand, reclaimed or somehow customized, joked that we could open a business and call it “Misfit Furniture”, as we loved to adopt misfit pieces and make them fit in our modern lives.
The idea, and the name, sticked in our hearts and here we are, collecting unloved pieces and making them beautiful again so that they can be used for many years to come.
We know that there are beloved pieces you are not ready to throw away – and you shouldn’t! – but sometimes they really need some care to make them look fresh again.
Furniture old and not so old can be renovated to be in line with your interior design choices and the modern trends.
Your grandmother’s favorite armchair or those beautiful, but dated, dining chairs are in good hands with us.
We strip back everything to the frame, assess and eventually repair it, and then reupholster it using modern techniques.
You really want a certain piece, or something you saw in our store is already sold. No problem, we can track down a similar item for you! The sourcing service is free and you only pay for the final piece – upcycled or not is your choice.
For restaurants, cafes, stores, and interior designers:
We love to collaborate and work together to make your vision happen. Get in touch to know more about how we can track that special piece down for you or for complete projects.
