Jill, Furniture Artist & Interior Designer

Following my passion

My love of antiques and interior design led me to furniture restoration & upcycling.

My uncle was an antiques dealer and I grew up sharing his passion, trawling antique fairs, flea markets, and auctions. When I moved to Amsterdam over 20 years ago, I fell in love with the style of furniture and the buildings here and bought my first antique piece of furniture. I have always had a creative side and started restyling furniture about 6 years ago when I was rehabilitating after an operation. Soon I had a garage full of furniture!

In 2020 I took the plunge to follow my passion and swapped my successful finance career to concentrate full time on my interior design and furniture restyling / upcycling businesses. Starting off in my home atelier, I opened my restyling shop and atelier in Aalsmeer in 2022. Please visit the shop or message me if you would like me to create a piece for you, or if you have any questions about any of the pieces for sale or commission.

Look forward to hearing from you!
