to the home of upcycling for interiors
... 21st century style
The House of Upcycling's aim is the development, support and elevation of the work of the professional designer-remaker creating furniture, lighting, art and home accessories. Our artisans are challenging the design world to reduce the amount of waste materials being sent to landfill, materials that can be salvaged, reused and upcycled into incredibly unique and functional items for residential and commercial interiors.
The hashtag #FASHIONFORINTERIORS best describes what our Associate creatives are producing and that professional upcycling today has become, as award-winning architect and interior designer Rabih Hage said in 2018, 'the design trend of the 21st century'.

Our unique membership for professional upcyclers continues to develop and we are delighted to continue supporting the work of our associates (the term we use when referring to our members) and elevating the standards and status of professional upcycling.
Membership is now by application only and numbers are limited so that we can specifically support our associates work and businesses both on an individual and bespoke basis as well as their involvement as part of our creative community.
If you are interested in becoming an associate of the House of Upcycling, please click here.
A new level of Membership - ACCESS - will be introduced soon. This level of membership is for artisans who want to carve out a career as a professional upcycler or who have recently already started in business and are looking for guidance and mentoring from those who are experienced upcyclers and business owners.

Our Creative School offers a huge variety of classes from upcycling lights to decoupage, upholstery to furniture painting. Associate artisans provide a wealth of workshops suitable for the novice or the experienced upcycler seeking to acquire new skills. They're also a great idea as the backdrop for a celebration or as a corporate team building day.

Whether a beginner looking to gain upcycling skills or running a pro upcycling business and want professional support, studying alongside your peer group, take a look at the classes available in either the Business or Creative Schools and begin your CPD (Continuing Professional Development).
Our Business School covers the many different aspects of professional life from social media to pricing, working with interior designers to websites. And every workshop always includes the opportunity to experience networking in real time: there's really nothing quite like learning and being inspired amongst a group of pro-upcyclers!
