Lucy Dumpleton, owner of Chic Appeal, about the inspiration behind the company.
G: What inspired you to start this business?
Our inspiration came from not being able to find the furniture style we wanted for our new home. After looking around and finding some very high priced items but not in the exact style we required, we decided to produce our own. The results were amazing, and family and friends all wanted us to do the same for them. From this, Chic Appeal was born.
G: What sorts of workshops do you offer, and which is your favourite to run?
We offer three workshops: beginners', intermediate and advanced. We love our beginners' workshops as the people who attend are always amazed with the results they can achieve.
G: Which of your talents have proven useful in the work you do?
Attention to detail and patience.
G: What do people love most about the workshops?
They love the easy-going and fun environment, plus the skills they gain to be able to go home and create their own shabby chic furniture.
G: Can you tell us about a particularly memorable event in your business?
The first time we were approached by a large hotel and restaurant to provide furniture for them.
Chic Appeal's Facebook following is not so shabby, with over 830 likes to date.
