Dumped & Ditched transforms old furniture into unique and distinct objects, heirloom pieces that speak to the heart and communicate through time.
Britta de Laat, Founder
Our passion lies in restoring mid-century and antique furniture into exquisite keepsakes. Vintage chairs tailor-made for you.
Dumped & Ditched is about quality and artistry. We are passionate about preservation, sustainability and second chances. By exclusively utilising premium quality materials, we ensure your furniture will stand the test of time. All textiles in our extensive range are hand-picked, making sure they are of the highest standard, and suited to purpose.
Our expertise ranges from concept and design to rebuilding furniture from a bare frame to a signature piece.
Upon arrival each piece is carefully assessed. We walk you through the entire process, from timber finishes to textile selection and styling catered to your individual needs. We intently restore everything from scratch, honouring time-worn processes, while making sure to salvage any usable material from the original. We strip every layer back and remove every last staple. The structural integrity of the frame is thoroughly evaluated and restored as needed. What you get back is essentially a new chair ingrained with history.
Commissioning a professional upholsterer isn’t an everyday thing, we get that.
It’s placing your trust, and money, in someone to create furnishings you will fall in love with again and again. We establish personal relationships with our keepsakes. Just as the way we dress is an expression of our identity, our home tells the story of who we are.
A signature piece or some custom-made cushions are more than simple eye-catching features. They are cherished personal possessions that can be handed down through generations. Besides being functional pieces of art, bespoke furniture is an investment in personal memories.
Designing unique furniture
The sheer amount of interior styling options can be overwhelming. We work closely with our clients and help them to make the right fabric choice suiting their personal aspirations for their homes. Our fabric books encompass a large variety of textiles from plain linens to outspoken prints. We offer extensive fabric consultations for all furniture that makes it into our workshop.
Isn’t it a fabulous feeling when things fall into place?
