Hi, I'm Yvonne, the face behind Forever Vintage!
I'm passionate about reviving vintage furniture, and ensuring it gets appreciated and loved again. Some pieces can be revived, but lots of the pieces I get from landfill need that little something extra!
I love all the different ways I can use my creativity in furniture design. My favourite style is a mix of the original wood grain with a modern twist, and I love when a client wants something that will make a statement!
From the initial designing, which I do using Photoshop, to the actual transformation that happens when an old tired piece is completely revived. It really is my dream job!
Please get in touch if you'd like a custom piece created for you, or if you see something you like, I'd love to hear from you.
Thanks so much for supporting my business. You can follow my work on Facebook and Instagram - links below!
With business and hospitality management degrees, I started out working in the hospitality and higher education sectors, but it wasn't something I was passionate about. I then caught the love of learning and education whilst teaching English abroad and so returned to Scotland to train in primary teaching. I loved being creative as a teacher but always dreamed of a career in something where I could design and let my creativity loose!
I have dabbled in graphic design, photography, hand painted gifts, and art/craft classes for children!
Maybe in the future I'll combine my teaching skills with my new passion and help others take the leap....
