Why to choose refinished furniture,
instead of newly made?
Refinished furniture has become a trend recently – actually in the last 20 years or so. Many people have a passion for it – either to buy such pieces, or to make them. The motivation behind can vary, not everyone choose it for the same reason. Some of the motivation forces are really good reasons though and can make all of us think. Let’s see now some of the main reasons why to choose refinished furniture, instead of newly made ones.
Saves treasures and value
This is one of our No1 motivation behind our refinishing job. We believe that a beautiful solid wood furniture deserves to be preserved for long. Even if its style is little bit outdated, it still represents value. It’s made of quality material (solid wood), and during the years it has accumulated stories of lives and events around which adds to its value. By refinishing, we can preserve the valuable part of it. And by giving it a fresh new design to match contemporary interiors we can prolong its lifespan for the newer generations.
Saves you money
Why? Mainly because a furniture which was originally made of quality sturdy wood, and refinished to high standards by experts, will last long and represent real value for good. So it definately is a long term investment. By carefully choosing the right piece it can serve you for a whole life.
These are our main motivation forces behind our furniture refinishing work. And they make us able to cultivate a passion for our work. A passion for furniture, for uniqueness, for quality, for nature, for trees, for environment, for creativity. And we have the hope that we can pass it on.
Protect nature and environment
How so? Well, it definitely does so in several ways. Each piece of factory-made new furniture contributes to environment pollution and nature destruction. Producing new materials require either cutting trees, or, in case of the laminate sheets, using harmful and not recycleble substances. Laminate sheets cannot be reused or recycled, due to their chemical compounds even burning them is extremely harmful to environment. And the whole process of mass-producing new modern furniture – the factories, machiniery, shipping – highly contributes to pollution. Also, whenever we decide to buy newly made furnishing, our old pieces usually end up at waste collection sites, and in many cases they literally become a waste. So, all these things considered, by choosing to refurbish or refinish a furniture, or buying refinished ones we can contribute remarkably to protect nature and environment. And it’s our responsibility to do so, for our children, for our Earth.
Add a special atmosphere to your home
Mass-production usually results in having the same style in every home. On the other hand, a uniquely designed refinished furniture from a small artisan manufacture can really add uniqueness to your home. It’s mainly because they are one of a kind pieces, there are never two pieces alike. And since refinishing can be done in a lot of different styles, you can choose the one that fits the most in your home and matches your personality.
Reloved Furniture Malta is a small family business located on the sunny islands of Malta, right in the middle of the majestic Mediterranean. Me and my husband have been living here for quite a few years, and have made the mediterranean lifestlye our own. The plenty of sunshine and the nearness of the beautiful sea gives enough inspiration to any artistic minded people –us too.
As for me, all in my life I’ve loved doing different crafts and arts. I tried myself in many different areas during the years, but whatever I did and whereever I lived, one thing I could never miss: creative, artistic activity, let it be a handmade craft, or creative writing. I’ve always liked to learn new things – and this is how I fell in love with refurbishing old furnitures. I love the whole process of it, to watch how an old and maybe little bit bored piece comes to life again with each and every brushstroke. Yes, I said ’bored’, because life is changing, the world is changing, and those old but precious family furniture sometimes simply do not fit into today’s interiors anymore. But it would be such a shame just to waste those treasures! With paint and imagination they can be redesigned and reloved again, for many years to come.
One of our main principles in this creative job is that, if only possible, we work with solid wood furniture only. Very-very rarely we are willing to make exceptions. We believe that only solid timber represents long lasting quality and real value. And basically this is our first goal – to salvage treasures for the newer generations, and to protect our planet by saving waste.
My husband is a professional carpenter with many years of experience, trained by masters for years. This is one reason why I can definately say we are perfect compliments for each other in this work (just as in many other areas of life) – he is able to give the furniture the needed structural restoration and woorwork, and then I can come with my brush and paint.
