Bespoke Sustainable Interiors

Atelier Tutco

Atelier Tutco specialises in creating luxurious bespoke restyled furniture commissions and unique, hand painted, refinished furniture available to purchase by clients looking for local, responsible, repurposing design solutions with a focus on sustainability.

If you don’t already own a piece of furniture that you would like to commission us with but have an idea of what you are looking for, we can  source that special piece for you.

Try one of our upcycling workshops if you’d like to learn how to create beautiful unique furniture of your own.  We also run a number of other creative and wellness based classes.

Upcycling Workshops

Would you like to learn how to restyle a piece of furniture so that it works aesthetically in harmony with your interior?

Or perhaps you want to go for something quirky, a real statement piece that stands out from the crowd?

Why not try one of our upcycling workshops to create a beautiful unique piece of furniture that you can be proud of knowing that you created by yourself!

Alternatively, if you know someone you would like to gift a workshop to, we offer vouchers to purchase and whatever amount you choose can be redeemed against the cost of the workshop.

"The chest of drawers is amazing. You have breathed new life into it and the colours are a perfect match for the room, the chest of drawers has been in the family for close on 30 years and the work you have done gives it a fresh new look. Thanks a million."

Simon (Commission customer)

“I have been friends with Claire for about 8 years, I first met Claire at a private college in Clapham where I was currently teaching. Right from the start Claire, showed not only talent, but a flair for design, and that coupled with her determination and enthusiasm has led her onto many wonderful and life changing design led experiences today. I am so pleased that you have opened your shop Claire and I hope you have lots of fun as I know that you have wanted to do this for a long time."
