Rest and relaxation have been the inspiration in the remastering of this beech wood Parker Knoll. As the British do love to be beside the seaside, a very fitting striped deck chair patterned fabric has been chosen to complement the surf board shaped armrests. The wooden frame has been hand sanded back to its natural colour which is reminiscent of our beautiful cornish beaches. Junk Gypsies are proud to deliver you a slice of British to be seated in all year round.
Strong, reliable and functional best describe the bucket stool. Unable to function as intended we have repurposed, re-newed and re-made the humble bucket into a funky fresh mini upcycled master piece.
Ideal for children’s rooms, glampers or simply to put your feet up at the end of a hard day and watch your favourite soap.

In a time before refrigeration the properties of aluminium were harnessed by Grundy Teddington LTD to keep the every day peoples milk cool during transport. These four little fellas were made specifically for Northern Dairy’s in Bridlington but with vast leaps in technology since WW2 they have been redundant for many, many years. Life however just got a little more interesting for these old timers. After securing new employment with Her Majesty’s Secret Service, each of them has visited the Junk Gypsies tailor for new suits and hats. You will be pleased to know that these secret agents now have a licence to chill and will serve and protect your beers on long hot summer days. 00-Heaven if you ask me!
Making a dramatic comeback in small spaces all across the great land are the humble screen room dividers. We rescued this one from a retired mink farm in Worcestershire. Very dishevelled, burdened and tired in appearance, but all her faculties still strong. The Junk Gypsies makeover team revitalised, reinvigorated and remastered her into a disco loving, fun filled ambassador of good times. Bright and beautiful double sided fabric panels have been created then secured with pine surround in the original hinged frame creating a rainbow wall of colour to bring that Junk Gypsies soul to even the dullest of small spaces
Upcycling at its very best. Coffee beans grown on the other side of the world are harvested, packed and shipped to the UK in hessian sacks.

Mr & Mrs Bean is currently being exhibited at The Croft Wingates Art Gallery in Market Harborough. Please contact us for availability before purchasing to avoid disappointment.

Reminiscent of a WW2 solider suffering with trench foot was this stable door when discovered on a farm in Yorkshire. After undergoing a causality evacuation to the Junk Gypsies operating theatre this soldiers time on front line duty was over. After being washed and prepped for surgery it was obvious to see that this beautiful relic was made by true craftsmen some eighty plus years ago. Individual planks of pine were measured, cut, shaped and finished by a master carpenter. A simple but exquisite lock was then crafted and positioned to finish his work. Four hand forged, folded and shaped sets of hinges were then commissioned by a black smith in order to finish their functional masterpiece.
Now in need of extensive surgery we set about fixing him up. After many, many, many hours in theatre we managed to save all of his enduring features. Now immortalised under a ten millimetre sheet of toughened glass this solider wears all his battle scars with the same pride as his hand calved lock and forged hinged medals obtained for his long and distinguished service. Both blacksmith and carpenter of the same period once crafted the scaffold trestles now repurposed for the legs of this enigmatic piece in order for this solider’s new service. Serving as a constant reminder that a family that eats together stays together. May you eat, drink and laugh for many years in his company.
In 1934 Richie Gill, a Cornishman who had been working in the United States, returned to England. He spotted an opportunity for a product successfully used in America, Liquid petroleum gas, LPG. Gill coined the name Calor Gas and in January 1935 he set up Calor (Distributing) Co. Ltd based in London. Richie’s legacy is still in full swing to this very day and sometimes we are lucky enough to come across one of his early relics. So in true Junk Gypsies style we are ensuring that Richie and his story live on long after the Earths gas runs out.
The Richie Gill is more then just a lamp, its a fully functional funky setter of ambience. From his Edison bulb to his industrial Calor Gas bottle stand this gentleman has a presents. Like a tall stranger at a party he is sure to keep your friends talking. Working social events of family spaces he’s yet another simply a bright idea from the Junk Gypsies design team.
Sampson The Snake has been reincarnated in bright and beautiful fire-retardent remnants, handmade here in Worcestershire…
Do not be fooled by his extremely still and snug position, he has been heavily stuffed with 70% recycled luxurious duck feather and down mixed with 30% polyester fibre, so if there’s a draught by a door Sampson will catch it!!
During and after WW2, this cast iron scale was used to for weighing out potatoes on a small farm in north Worcestershire. Potatoes were one of the few things that were not subject to rationing.
Unique, small but bold is this combination of agricultural salvage and reclaimed timber. Perfect for a lamp, side or occasional table.
