Nest Studio is an eco-friendly business invested in re-loving, restoring and recycling furniture.


We source locally where possible, so that items get a new lease of life rather than ending up in landfill.

We are always promoting greener attitudes to interior furnishing when we meet with clients and collaborators.

We want to make an impact with our furniture, not an impact on the planet.

We are constantly working towards a less careless future, by thinking about our practices and products.



 Love, not landfill.

Together, we can reduce the impact that manufacturers create, limiting plastics & toxic fumes emitted during some modern furniture production.

We prefer to nurture existing solid wood beauties and reimagine them with green products. 

We use low to zero VOC paints, (complying with EN71:3) making it safe for use indoors and harmless around pets & children.

It is also suitable for painting odour sensitive items including cots, toys and baby bedrooms.



Commissions – Your furniture, Your way.

If you have furniture you like, but it doesn’t fit a style or colour scheme, or if you have a sentimental hand-me-down that needs some TLC, then don’t hide it away in the attic!

We love to refinish items with provenance so they can be proudly shown off again. We also have unique items already refurbished for sale. You can find items currently for sale on our socials or in either of our showrooms at Evegate or Folkestone High street.

We can also source items upon request and refinish them to your specification or replicate a previous piece.

Local delivery is available weekly and National delivery can be arranged in most cases, so please get in touch with any queries.



22 years… and counting!

With experience in furniture artistry spanning over two decades, we have plenty of skills and knowledge on reimagining and reinventing furniture.

We specialise in eccentric and eclectic styles and themes, luxecycling antique and vintage items, modernising them with luxury hardware, paints, effects products, fabrics and wallpapers. All items are hand-finished.

You can find items ranging from vintage circus and fairground styles, to chateau faded grandeur and occasionally minimalist geometric MCM… We do it all!

We have most recently been recognised for our work through various awards processes, either by public vote or judged by a panel.

We were one of 5 finalists in the 2021 Muddy Stilettos Awards for Kent’s ‘Best Interiors Store’ and we won the award for ‘Best Art Space’ in Kent in 2022. Stephanie was one of the finalists for Ashford ‘Businesswoman of the year’ award.

We were also one of four finalists for the Rural Oscars ‘Best Rural Enterprise’ in the South East of England.


Keeping it clean.
As an Official Stockist of Frenchic® Furniture Paint, we can provide you with the same luxurious low VOC, low odour, chalk & mineral paints, waxes and effects products we use on our own items.
We offer a variety of workshops showing you how to revive, update and restore pieces of furniture, all whilst being kind to the environment.    


Our purpose-built studio with an outside creative area, is perfect for socially distanced workshops. We host a variety of furniture painting sessions, craft courses, and art clubs for all abilities.


These not only give you new skills but also offer a therapeutic and calming environment. With training in mental health and wellbeing, counselling and therapy through art, we take great care to offer a safe and inclusive space for all our Attendees. “
