***Free Delivery Mainland UK***

This mid-last-century piece has now been brought into the 21st Century with a smooth jet black paint from Fusion Mineral. The stencilled exterior and matching interior make this piece utterly bespoke. The upper outer drawer front and cupboard door have been stripped back to the original oak, stencilled in the same coal black in a pattern reminiscent of the sixties era, with an oil/wax finish.

The design carries on through the bureau interior and the original handles have been revived. This all renders this bureau unique – you will not find another. Perfect for working from home or occasional admin.

At Upcycle Arcade, our aim is to provide beautifully bespoke, possibly purposeful, and definitely desirable pieces of furniture which are just a little different from the norm. Standing out whilst fitting in for years thus promoting longevity and sustainability as old is definitely the new new.

We use high quality, specialist paints and equipment and every piece has a unique design and finish.

Furniture Care:

The Fusion Mineral paint and OSMO used on this piece is waterproof, however we still recommend using placemats/ coasters when in use. Treat with care as you would with any other high-quality piece of furniture.

Please note that this piece has been restored with skill and high attention to detail, however it does show some signs of a previous much-loved life.
