Conscious Cubby brings you sustainable, eco friendly painted furniture that has been professionally and lovingly restored by clever artisan small business owners from all over the UK.
The new furniture industry is a devastatingly wasteful one with disregarded fabrics and materials, plastics and resins, and not forgetting completely wasted wood. It takes an awful lot to create the new furniture in your home these days and unfortunately it takes an overwhelming toll on the planet too.
Conscious Cubby was set up by Lowenna Insular, 38, mum of 4. The website was launched in March 2021 and has already proven to be hugely popular amongst the professional furniture painters sector, with many applications received to set up shop and start selling on Conscious Cubby.
It’s about time the ‘fast furniture’ trend had a bit of a wake up call, with quality strong made furniture outliving anything built these days, more and more conscious consumers are choosing to buy restored furniture or commission a furniture painter to revamp their own furniture, bringing it back upto date or inline with their current décor.
On Conscious Cubby you can find a mix of vintage, mid century, retro and contemporary restored or painted furniture that have all been fully restored by small business professionals. The upcycling process includes prep work such as cleaning, sanding, fixing and filling. Then partly painted or painted all over, detailing added with techniques like decoupage or stenciling and then finished with specialist waxes or varnishes. All Conscious Cubby sellers prefer to use eco friendly products during the upcycling process by using paints from brands like Fusion Mineral Paint, Frenchic Paint Fleur Paint & Dixie Belle.
Conscious Cubby aims to be the first choice for the conscious shopper looking for quality furniture that’s not only kinder to the planet, but unique and one off designs.
