Business owner Tammy Taylor loves to “relove” old furniture.
Tammy has opened a new shop in The George Centre, Grantham, called Something Old, Something New. It is an interior design business which brightens up old pieces of furniture and can also bring a vintage look to your home.
The shop sells fabrics by well-known names such as Vanessa Arbuthnott, Emily Bond and Kate Foreman. The business includes curtain-making, upholstery and cushions and will give style advice in-store and at your home. The shop also sells the Grand Illusion vintage paint range.
Tammy, who grew up in Hose and now lives in Knipton, said: “I like to help people choose colour schemes and help them reuse things. That’s what I pride myself on. Perhaps reloving an old heirloom you don’t want any more because it’s not trendy. I can help bring it back into fashion.”
Tammy has been in the business for eight years and has moved back to the Grantham area from Rutland. It is very much a family-oriented business with her mother and aunt involved. Upholsterer James Oughton is also part of the business, helping to restore and renovate furniture.
Tammy said: “I have had some really great support from my family and from The George Centre. They have been fantastic and really positive in their support. It’s been a pleasurable experience to come to Grantham.”
Tammy runs workshops in furniture painting, lampshade making, knitting and sewing, depending on demand. For more details call 07510 915844 or 01476 570338.
