And the WINNER goes to.....

One of a Kind Designs (that’s me), had the incredible honour of winning “The Perfect Gift Award for Best Bespoke Upcycled Furniture Company in Scotland 2023”, thanks to LuxLife Magazine.

Well, let me tell you when I found out about this award I was over the moon! It's like a dream come true, seriously. As a one-woman show, getting recognised by a big name like LuxLife Magazine is just beyond anything I could have imagined.

If you haven't heard of LuxLife Magazine - it's like the holy grail of luxury living! They cover everything from fashion to fine dining, and of course, luxury home interiors including furniture, and they're all about celebrating excellence in all its forms.

How has Winning this Award Benefited Me?

For me, upcycling vintage furniture isn't just a job - it's my passion. It's about taking old, forgotten pieces, and turning them into something beautiful and unique for the modern home.

And to have that passion acknowledged in this way? It's just mind-blowing!

I've got to say, winning this award has been a real confidence booster for me. Making the switch from the corporate world to chasing my creative dreams at the end of 2023 was a leap of faith, but it's been so worth it, and this award is like a big pat on the back, reminding me that following your heart can lead to some pretty amazing places.

This award is like a stamp of approval, telling everyone that when they buy from me, they're getting something truly special, just like this one-of-a-kind Display Cabinet.

Discover the Art of Repurposing Furniture

Embracing creativity lies at the heart of upcycling, a practice that not only benefits the environment but also sparks innovation and individuality. As an advocate for sustainable living, I find immense joy in encouraging and motivating others to participate in the art of upcycling. By delving into a world of colours, textures, and design techniques, individuals can transform discarded items into unique pieces of art, breathing new life into what was once considered waste.

One of the most fulfilling aspects of upcycling is the ability to repurpose furniture, giving it a second chance rather than consigning it to a landfill. Through upcycled furniture, we not only reduce our ecological footprint but also add character and personality to our living spaces. Each upcycled piece tells a story, reflecting the creativity and ingenuity of its creator.

By fostering a culture of upcycling, we not only contribute to a more sustainable future but also cultivate a sense of community and shared responsibility. Encouraging others to embrace upcycling is a powerful way to promote environmental consciousness and showcase the transformative power of creativity.

I love to inspire others with examples of my creative endeavors and assure them that there are no rigid guidelines. Each upcycled furniture item is distinctive and mirrors the creator's individuality.

So, a massive thank you to LuxLife Magazine for this incredible honour, and of course, to all of you who have supported me on this crazy journey.

This award isn't just a milestone; it's a symbol of all the late nights, the hard work, and the sheer determination it takes to make your dreams a reality.

I couldn’t, and wouldn’t, do it without you all.
