Our Range of Goods

Many of our brilliant goods are sourced from antique fairs around the country. We then take them back to our barn and if needed, restore and add a bit of Blue Ticking Magic. Though we love anything vintage, we also enjoy making our own goods. For example, chalkboards, memoboards and treasure boxes to name a few. Much of our time is spent conjuring up new goods as well as scouring the country for vintage and classic gems.

Everything is bought, made and restored with love and attention to detail to ensure they stand the test of time and are unique.

If I had to put together my top ten desks, this tambour fronted beauty would be in it without a doubt! It has some pretty cool features; including an extra leaf for more work space and pull out drawers. Online right now and ready to head to a brilliant new home. #tambourdesk #vintagedesk #kidsdesk #schooldesk #schoolfurniture #vintagefinds #kidsinteriors #interiorsinspo #newstock #woodendesk ...

The first piece of furniture I bought for Blue Ticking was a vintage school desk. It was the classic lift up lid version we all remember from our own childhood. Memories of school days come flooding back and every desk we work on has its own history and rich tapestry of a life well lived! I never tire of an old school desk. I love the many markings and individual scribblings, though I would happily discard the endless chewing gum that we find and still holds its tuti frutti smell! A piece of furniture which has seen so much, could tell a thousand stories and stands the test of time will always be special to us and we love that you feel the same too. Thank you for believing in our goods and supporting our dream. #schooldesks #vintagedesks #kidsdesk #vintagefurniture #restoration #schoolfurniture #smallbusiness #shopsmall #supportsmallbusiness #familyrunbusiness #smallbusinessowner ...

This is Edith’s room; it’s full of her creative personality and sense of fun. It’s also where I spent a lot of time yesterday putting lego heads back on bodies!

So here is quite possibly the best science lab cabinet on the planet! Bold statement I know, but it’s rather special! It’s solid Iroko, has sliding glass doors, brass inset handles and three adjustable shelves. All in all a rather splendid piece of school furniture which would provide incredible storage. Holler for all the vital stats! #sciencecabinet #schoolcabinet #schoolfurniture #vintagefurniture #storagegoals #storageideas #storagesolutions #iroko #glasscabinet #vintagefinds #kidsinteriors #interiorsinspo #newstock ...

We’ve had two pretty special vintage school cabinets arrive at the studio today. This is the first one I want to showcase. It’s solid pine with three adjustable shelves inside. Perfect for toys, books, craft bits and bobs, glass/kitchen ware, clothes and loads more! I’m head over heals for it and just know it will be heading to a new home very soon!

Yeap, another corker of a picture right there! Just one of these rare Esavian beauties left. This has been painted in Dutch orange, but what colour would you choose?

I love this picture so much. It’s shows one of our Esavian single desks and chairs which we customised in Babouche which is such a striking colour. They look so sharp and totally at home here in their new space. We had quite a few of these desks but are now down to our last two. You can either buy them with their original black legs or we can paint the legs and hinges for a little extra. With over 20 Farrow and Ball colours to choose from you are spoilt for choice! Simply get in touch to discuss options. #esavian #esaviandesk #esavianfurniture #babouche #kidsdesk #vintagedesk #schooldesk #schoolfurniture #kidsroom #kidsroominspo #kidsinteriors #popofcolour #yellow ...

Another week of managing the home schooling and work juggle!!! I have no idea what week we’re in but keeping all my fingers and toes crossed that it’s a decent one for everyone with more highs than lows! Only three of these mega metal legged lift up lid desks available. Don’t forget that you can customise by choosing the colour of the legs. Once they’re gone, they’re gone! #homeschooling #homeschool #woodendesk #schooldesk #kidsdesk #schoolfurniture #kidsinteriors #ourspacetocreate #bespoke #customised #vintagefinds #vintagefurniture ...
