GHOST FURNITURE IN 2012 - PLANS ARE AFOOT
I have never known a year like 2011. Apart from some awful personal stuff going on in our lives business has been dire. I don't believe anyone who says it hasn't been for them. I have never seen so many sales before Christmas, it was certainly a buyers market.
Onto 2012 with new plans to beat the recession. Ghost Furniture will be spending longer periods of time in France scouring those fabulous brocantes to not only bring back pieces and breath new life into them but we are going to start to bring back those pieces we have spent years bypassing, those pieces that need to stay just as they are. We are determined to put the chic back into shabby in 2012.
We are also in the throes of organising Furniture Workshops for 2012 to be held in this gorgeous place I call home - The Northumberland National Park. They will be 3 day courses with the most amazing accommodations available which include - luxury apartments, traditional country inns and even luxury yurts and Indian tepees. Our guests will be treated to wonderful local fayre and will be taken to the places that inspire us and will have a tour of our cottage that sits in a tiny hamlet overlooking the Tyne Valley. All our guests have to do is turn up with a small piece of furniture they want to restyle and the rest will be provided by us.
We will be appearing at Vintage Fairs all over the UK. All that's left to say is WATCH THIS SPACE.

What a wonderful way to reinvent your business. Know you will find wonderful things - wish you all the best in 2012!!
You get filthy years when every thing is difficult I had one and was so glad when the year turned. Fresh start I thought and wrote the car off on Surrey ice. But it turned out a good year.
I find when I get low about my buisness there is a big idea on its way.
Think ten years on, interior fashions will be different, can I jump ahead to what I think that will be and start a new strand? If you can see that you will have the edge.
Yes it has not been an easy year...
One has to keep on thinking creatively ... Your workshops sound great and in such beautiful surroundings! All the best for 2012!
très belle année a vous !
The countryside around Di, is beautiful, she is entertaining, knowledgable and knows how to put a good day together. If you needed another reason to visit Northumberland this is it!
Worst year of my life but good in a way because it slamed some doors that needed to be closed for a long time now...bring on the change...
