About Us

Welcome to One of a Kind Designs – Creatively Bespoke Furniture

Welcome to One of a Kind Designs, where we turn the old into new treasures for your home. Based in East Kilbride on the outskirts of Glasgow, we are passionate about breathing new life into forgotten furniture pieces through the art of upcycling.

At One of a Kind Designs, we believe that every piece of furniture has a story to tell, and we are here to help continue that narrative.


Our skilled Designer and Creator, Michelle Davidson, meticulously transforms pre-loved furniture, salvaged from various sources, into unique, bespoke pieces that add character and charm to any space.

With a commitment to sustainability, we embrace the ethos of upcycling, reducing waste, and minimizing our environmental footprint. By repurposing and revitalising existing furniture, we not only create beautiful pieces but also contribute to a more eco-conscious lifestyle.

Whether it's a worn-out dresser or a forgotten table, we relish the challenge of breathing new life into each item. From sanding and painting to reupholstering and refinishing, every step of our process is carried out with precision and care to ensure the highest quality results.

At One of a Kind Designs, we don't just sell upcycled furniture; we offer a curated collection of one-of-a-kind pieces that reflect our passion for creativity and style.

We invite you to explore our collection and discover the perfect statement piece for your home. Join us in our mission to reimagine furniture, reduce waste, and create spaces filled with beauty, history, and soul.

Meet Our Founder & Creator

Introducing Michelle Davidson, a queen at restoring quality furniture, a fabulous teacher with the most amazing top tips in the creative world and so much more.

I believe that furniture should be made to last, not to be thrown into landfills when décor styles change over time. It is important to me that we maintain and treasure hand-crafted furniture when trends change to preserve these individual and unusual pieces. 

I love trying different methods and styles when transforming my furniture, from smooth, modern finishes to bright contrasting colours, to using decoupage and distressing techniques.  I experiment with a wide range of quality products from companies like Dixie Belle, Fusion and Re-Design with Prima to create eye-catching and desirable furniture. My furniture will always be unique statement pieces that you will be proud and excited to show off.

“Absolutely blown away by my newly restored side board!


Sent Michelle pictures and she came back with great ideas and suggestions - she listened to exactly what I was looking to achieve.


Beautiful handles were sourced to match my lamps and the colour was matched to my newly decorated room!

5 star service and updates throughout! Thanks again”


"Delighted to finally find this nest of tables after looking for months.


It was even better than described and it was so easy and a pleasure to communicate with Michelle who even arranged delivery.


Amazing service and products and I would certainly purchase other items from One of a Kind Designs in the future."


“I have just purchased the most beautiful piece of furniture from One of A kind Restoration.


It is clear to see that is has been lovingly and professionally restored and it is full of character and charm.


A perfect accompaniment for my new kitchen.


Would recommend them to anyone looking for something a little different from the usual and a

'one off'.”



'No Man is an Island' as the saying goes, but as an entrepreneur it can sometimes feel like it.

I believe it is incredibly important to have friends, family, experts and peers to support, encourage, guide and challenge me in running my small business.
