Laura’s fantastic fun, full of energy and passionate about restoring gorgeous pieces of furniture in her own unique style.

She’s so talented in what she does and you can see it in all the intricate and delicate details she puts into every piece. She’s based in Cardiff and just starting her own business, going straight in with her own workshop and visiting suppliers to get her furniture in stores.

For the shoot, I wanted to capture all the wonderful colour and uniqueness of her furniture in a natural setting, so we took it outside and shot it in a lovely park just down the road. The leaves had just fallen and created a gorgeous yellow and brown floor for the shots, blending really well with the wood of the furniture.

After the furniture I spent some time with Laura in her workshop, watching her restore a gorgeous winchester chair. I’d never realised how much work and skill goes into them and how long it takes to make one. Seeing it stitched together in front of me was a real eye opener – and now I really want that chair 🙂

A massive thanks to Laura for having me and I wish her the very best in her new venture. Also thanks to Ed for lugging the furniture around, we couldn’t have done it without you!
