Vintage66 studio takes furniture and home décor items that have seen better days and makes them beautiful again, whether they be vintage, retro or recent pieces that have been mistreated or are just no longer wanted.
Their style isn’t to make these pieces ‘new’ again, but to ensure their story continues, like a new chapter. Dents, nicks and scratches that happen over the life of a piece can add charm and depending on the item, these may be enhanced or added to through distressing.
Vintage66 studio provides commission and custom services. Customers can contact the business if they have a piece of furniture they’d like revamped. Alternatively, if the customer is looking for a certain item and has yet to find it, Vintage66 studio may have it in stock or able to source it.
Vintage66 studio uses eco-friendly chalk paint, beeswax or clear sealer on the painted pieces. Scandinavian oil and other restoration products are also used.
DESIGNED + MADE IN
Mount Gravatt, Queensland
Where do you get your inspiration?
"From the pieces themselves. Sometimes I know exactly the result I’m after, although that can change! Sometimes a piece may sit in my workshop for a few weeks before I get that light bulb moment. I surround myself with other furniture artists; the inspiration and support within that community is amazing."
What has been your favourite piece and why?
"That is a hard question! My pieces are quite different, in styles and finishes. I get excited with each new piece I finish, but I do love transforming vintage lamps."
What is your favourite material to work with?
"When I’m hand painting a piece, I love to use chalk paint and wax. There’s so many looks that can be achieved with them and best of all, they’re eco-friendly."
If you were to expand your product range to something entirely different, what would it be?
"That is something to think about for the future. Furniture and lamps (with the odd frame and suitcase) is enough for now."
Describe your products in three words...
