The Painted Pearl
Husband and wife team, Steve and Michelle are the creatives behind Painted Pearl. They live and work by the sea in Whitstable, Kent and it is from here that they make and design their beautiful one-off pieces using reclaimed materials and furniture.
What sets Steve and Michelle’s work apart from current trends for painted vintage is their respect for the period of the furniture. Their sympathetic restoration uses a combination of skilfully applied, high quality paint finishes which include the application of patinas such as rust and Verdigris, lime painting and antiquing.
For more contemporary pieces they often combine geometric pattern with wallpaper collage to stunning effect. Their thoughtful and creative work results in highly original pieces of furniture and art.
