Wonderful!
Dec 2019
I've been to Recover several times. It's wonderful to see the engagement, enthusiasm and creativity of their team. The furniture is quite something; bright and unique, and their ethos is certainly sound in the current wasteful society in which we live. Recommend you visit during the week when the team are at work. Inspiring!

Marvellous one of a kind items to suit all pockets and tastes. The team of volunteers and staff are welcoming and it’s great to see them at work whilst browsing their furniture.

Worthy Cause, Well Worth A Visit!
Jun 2019
We first met Ian & Holly at Ally Pally Farmers Market and immediately loved the funky refreshed furniture they had on show! We also loved the story behind it and the opportunity their fabulous project allows for vulnerable people to bring furniture back to life and help recover themselves in the process. After moving home we had a perfect space in mind for the two beautiful chairs in the photos and they were luckily still available so they are now in their new home and loved already - I’m sitting in one now! Ian showed us around the fascinating showroom and workshop where the story really comes to life and we couldn’t resist taking home the stunning blue drawers too! Ian was so helpful getting it all in the car and we could not have been made more welcome by everyone. Thoroughly recommend a visit if you have space for something fresh & funky or not - I bet you’ll think hard about finding one once you’ve had a look!! Wish you all continued success & Wellbeing, Clive & Bas

Dining chairs recovered
Jun 2019 • Business
Our dining room chairs were in a sorry state and Recover recovered them for us. They did an excellent job leaving them looking like new. Also nice to know it’s benefiting the community.

Amazing, funky and fabulous table and chairs - thank you!
Apr 2019 • Solo
I visited Recover (again)...it's pretty addictive once you've been...and I found a table and 4 chairs which were just perfect for my kitchen. I asked the team if they could "jazz" them up a bit with some padding on the chair seats (funky colours) and this is the result (see photo)
Amazing and I love them!

Wonderful place!!
Mar 2019 • Business
Was told about this place by family member.... what a find!! A glorious treasure trove! Bought an item and after a big clear out at home have donated a couple of items. Ian and Hollie are great people to deal with and offer a professional and friendly service.
Would thoroughly recommend and you would be supporting a great cause.

Never ceases to amaze!
Feb 2019 • Solo
This Aladdin’s cave of gorgeous furniture never ceases to amaze me. The volunteers’ work just keeps getting better. Among a glittering (literally) array of wonderful items there was a sublime console table I wanted, but alas it was already sold.
It’s a truly inspired project run and manned by some really passionate people. Bravo. Keep up the great work! I’ll be back.

Cool space
Oct 2018 • Solo
I went to Recover looking for Fusion paint. Firstly, I called ahead and a very polite man helped me out which made me feel very comfortable. Once there, I asked to speak to Holly -the manager- who was so generous with her time! She is full of knowledge, tips and advice for a very inexperienced DIY goer as myself. I spent a good half hour asking her questions and not once she made me feel like I was being a pain. I took the chance to wonder around too and there are very unique and original pieces of furniture there. It is really cool to see how they bring them to life before my own eyes. I will definitely be visiting again! Thank you guys :)
