I am what the Aussie's call a 'Ranga' otherwise known as 'Carrot Top', 'Ginge', 'Fire Cracker' but my all time fave is Copper Top (largely down to my obsession with all things rose gold and copper). My husband is now somewhat Grey and although I believe it is due to being the other side of the big 4-0, he'd probably say its the sign of a successful marriage, or something to that effect.
With 30 years combined experience in retail, an addiction to finding bargains and a love for creating something out of nothing, it was a natural progression for us to take on the challenge of furnishing our first house as a married couple with upcycled furniture.
And so Copper & Grey was born.
We wanted to build a life doing something that we love, where we love which allows us more time to be with the ones we love. We took a huge leap of faith and decided to down tools in the corperate world in exchange for a hammer, paint brush and staple gun.
We are driven not only by building a dream but creating an independent brand that supports sustainability and helps reduce waste within our planet. At Copper & Grey we pride ourselves on producing unique pieces, making something marvellous out of something that would otherwise be disgarded.
Whilst I source and Redesign the products, my husband Restores the items before they are carefully painted and upholstered by hand. Each item is finished to a high standard and is unique in its design whilst having its own story to tell.
Whether you have something already that needs a new lease of life or you are looking for some inspiration and retail therapy please get in touch, we'd love to chat to you!
