The environment. We're all trying to do our best to preserve it for our futures, and there are many different ways we can contribute. Furniture is one of them. There's plenty of existing furniture in the world, why make more? Why not make use of the existing furniture and upgrade it for today?
Factory furniture has its place. This is not factory furniture. This is furniture that has stood the test of time and been lovingly sanded, primed, painted, waxed and embellished with new handles and knobs to make it special for you, all while helping the environment.
And, of course, there's the feel good factor of buying something that helps our planet.
Make the decision to buy environmentally friendly furniture, with all it's curves, anomalies and character! Individual is good!
You're buying environmentally friendly furniture so it makes sense to prime and paint it using only the best paint for the environment. Condover Furniture uses top quality Little Greene paints, the environmentally friendly choice of paint, as well as Graphenstone Mineral Paints. The paint we use to paint our bespoke furniture is water-based, certified child safe, fully washable and extremely tough. Little Greene uses only the finest natural, organic and safe synthetic pigments, giving superb depth of colour and Graphenstone are manufacturers of ecological paints with graphene . Graphenstone paints are among the healthies in the world with the majority completely free of VOC's, MIT's and other toxicities associated with most other paints.
You're doing the best you can for the environment by looking to buy environmentally friendly furniture, so go ahead and spoil yourself with our products. The doors and drawers of our furniture are all embellished with one of two options; beautiful individually hand made glass knobs and regular knobs which we can help source for you. The unique artisan crystal knobs from both England are hand made exclusively for Condover Furniture and without the involvement of any machinery, respecting the ancient glassblowing traditions. And if you'd like to buy the crystal glass knobs from Condover Furniture to enhance your own furniture or doors in your home, office or hotel, you can do that, too!
As an option, the furniture's surfaces can also be enhanced with unique individually hand made glass pebbles, examples of which you may see in our online store and in person in our shop in Condover, Shropshire, so creating a totally bespoke piece of furniture unique to you! Call us to discuss this option.

After moving back from the US to the UK in 2017, the amount of waste generated just on moving day was disheartening to me, not to mention the furniture that then wouldn't either physically fit into our home or wouldn't look good style-wise. The expense of an international move and not having a job prevented me from buying new replacement furniture and so the challenge was on to turn our existing furniture into something funky and desirable again.
I've always been very creative having come from an artistic family and love coming up with new ideas and ways to make dated old furniture attractive. I love unconventional as well as fun, bold colours and anything eclectic, so at the present time am embellishing a lot of old fashioned pine furniture with brightly coloured genuine Murano crystal glass knobs hand made in Murano, Venice, Italy, which I import, as well as themed knobs I have found online. I hope to move on to a line of brightly coloured furniture next. Environmentally friendly and non-consumption is where it’s at at the moment so I’m only using environmentally friendly products and aiming for non-consumption of unnecessary resources.
Convenience is king for most of us these days, with such busy daily schedules and weekend time becoming more and more precious. Many of us choose to re-purchase rather than mend and often that purchase will be a quick, cheap solution to a problem rather than several visits to different stores before we choose.
I want to make that 'quick purchase' something good that helps the environment. Condover Furniture.
Now you know my story, take a look at all that Condover Furniture has to offer.
You may not have the time to make good an old piece of furniture yourself, or you may be at the stage where you just need some fun furniture to furnish your rented flat or house. Whatever your reason, I'd like Condover Furniture to be on your favourite list of places to shop.
I'm of the belief that furniture should be a feast for the eyes and not something that is utilitarian sitting in the room.
Rather than buying a newly made piece of furniture, the manufacture of which has probably used a ton of resources, feel good and consider the beauty and character of an existing piece. We use only premium brands just like you would choose if you had the time to restore and paint yourself, and when we can, we add cool embellishments to make the furniture more fun!
Sometimes we spot a piece of furniture that's the right colour and that we know will look great in our home and sometimes we need to choose a specific shade. We get that! Condover Furniture uses only premium products and Little Greene paints so give us a call to discuss how we can help.
Stories from existing Condover Furniture customers to make you feel good about buying from us will soon populate this section!
