Furniture art, prints, pots and more!

Esk Haus is an illustrative studio that upcycles furniture to create unique pieces for the home. Passionate about design and sustainability I save pieces from landfill and give them a new lease of life! Here's a little bit about what I do...

INSPIRATION
My family and I are keen hikers and are always out walking in The Lake District and The Dales. I take lots if photos of the flowers and plants I see along the way of our adventures and this is what inspires my designs.

SUSTAINABILITY
This is an important part of my process. I want to make sure I am being creative in a conscious way and as kind to the environment as I can be. I use reused paints where possible that are professionally mixed by a local business that save paint from landfill! I also use up lots of tester pots that friends and family pass on to me after use.

COMMISSIONS
If you have a piece of furniture that you want to keep, or perhaps you inherited it and it has sentimental meaning but it doesn't go with your interior, I can help! I work with customers to bring new life to their beloved pieces of old furniture. I can create a design that takes colour from existing interiors and perhaps inspiration from a customer's favourite flowers. This creates a truly unique piece for their home.

FURNITURE
I source good quality furniture that has a lot of life left in it and great potential. Follow me on instagram @eskhaus to see pieces I have in stock that are available for commission.

DESIGN PROCESS
Photos > I take lots of photos to begin with of flowers and plants that I see whilst out walking.
Sketching > I sketch from photos the distinctive shapes I see. I take the sketches on my computer to redraw them and take colour swatches from the photos. These shapes and colours then become my toolkit for the compositions I create.
Stencils > When working on large pieces of furniture or walls, I create large templates that I use to sketch my designs on the surface.
Hand Paint > I hand paint the colours I have chosen and all furniture is sealed with a clear varnish for protection.

THE NAME
Esk Haus is simply one of my favourite places. A crossroads in the sky from which different peaks can be explored. Found in The Lake District (actually spelt Esk Hause but artistic license right ;)
Many a picnic has been spent here discussing 'one day' plans so it seemed fitting to call my 'one day' business after this special place!
