Who we are and what we do
Set up in 2010 by myself, Ursh Stevens in order to create one off pieces of awesomeness from preloved furniture & scrap yard finds.
In a past life I was a British Airways cabin crew member living life out of a suitcase travelling to some exotic locations. But when my youngest was 2 years old I moved back to my native county of Cumbria.
Life had changed dramatically & I started looking in auctions, scrap yards & reclamation yards for unusual things I could furnish my house with. From there it simply grew. My passion & desire to succeed increased & before I knew it I had a business on my hands. So the gel nails were no more, high heels swapped for steel toe capped boots & designer clothes for hoodies & work trousers.
Refunk’d has grown in recognition since those early days & now ships furniture worldwide & works with private and corporate clients. We have had press coverage online from national magazines.
In September 2014 Refunk’d was chosen by Theo Paphitis to be one of his SBS (Small Business Sunday) winners. A huge accolade & one I am so proud of. Meeting Theo was a great inspiration & has driven me to take Refunk’d to the next level.
