La Vie Nouvelle

Preloved furniture transformations.

A passion for upcycling

Fiona is a neurodiverse creative who runs her business in rural South-East Kent. She has a passion for upcycling furniture and believes that creativity should be celebrated at all levels of society. 

Fiona founded La Vie Nouvelle, with a mission to stop beautiful furniture from going to waste. Her first upcycled piece was a console table. She has been creating bespoke pieces ever since.

Creative collaboration

All of our bespoke upcycled furniture is created in our studio between Ashford & Folkestone. There is always a real buzz around the local creative scene and we are so lucky to be surrounded by such amazing businesses. We love to collaborate with others small local independents, to drive footfall and support the furniture industry. It is a multi-faceted and creative place; from carpenters to upholsterers and eve thing in between, furniture refinishing requires a vast skillset from a talented team.

Folkestone is home of the ‘creative quarter’ where there is an amazing mix of ideas, diversity and talent. Our team is influenced by the people they work with, the places they visit and the things that inspire them.

We love to give vintage items a new lease of life.

Every piece of furniture is individual and unique, made from reclaimed materials by the creative hands of the team at La Vie Nouvelle.

From furniture preparation to design, each step of the process is lovingly completed to ensure a quality piece of furniture is delivered.

With upcycled furniture designs and commissions anyone can add a touch of personality to their home. If you would like to discuss a project further, then please get in touch and we’ll book you in for a no-obligation and informal consultation at our studio.

Our bespoke pieces guide the style of your space

One of the many joys of working with our customers is providing a furniture piece that can be used as a focal point for their room. 

We can source almost any style of furniture. Often this is from our own extensive stock.

Our consultation process will see us exploring various fabrics, patterns and interior design trends, to get your furniture just the way you want it.

Furniture design is our passion. We look forward to many more years of furnishing homes, creating just the right statement pieces for our customers.
