La Vie Nouvelle transforms discarded items into beautiful bespoke upcycled furniture.

A passion for upcycling

Fiona is a neurodiverse creative who runs her business in Folkestone. 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.

When she is not at work Fiona can be found volunteering at Shepway Spectrum Arts with her beloved Labrador Nala.

Bespoke Furniture created in Folkestone

All of our bespoke upcycled furniture is created in our studio in Folkestone. We absolutely love Folkestone! There is always a real buzz around the local creative scene and we are so lucky to be surrounded by such amazing businesses.

Home of the ‘creative quarter’ 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 items a new 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.

No two people are the same, so why should we suffer from an absence of creativity in our homes? With upcycled furniture designs and commissions anyone can add a touch of personality to their home and we are the people to help you do that. 

We love what we do and strive to create stylish, comfortable designs that can be enjoyed for many years to come.
