'Absolutely stunning piece of furniture that I'm sure will be one of our 'forever' things. We'd looked at so many and this was perfect and so beautifully restored plus Emma's customer service was above and beyond - she drove it up to us so we got to meet her, hear a bit about the sideboard's background and it was lovely she got to see where it was going. Honestly cannot recommend highly enough. (Elisa, October 2021)

'We are absolutely delighted with both items, they look beautiful, immaculately and so professionally finished, very stylish and more than exceeded our expectations, can't thank you enough, honestly thrilled to bits with both pieces!! Also very impressed with the care taken to wrap them so very carefully, they are so beautiful and are just going to look perfect!' (

'Love DesignRetro's work, I want to purchase almost every piece that's posted! Keep up the good work!! Hope I can buy a uniquely restored bit of vintage furniture again soon. We have had our G plan drinks cabinet for 2 years now, hand painted and still in perfect condition. Thank you Emma.' (Gemma, May 2020)

‘I will never lose sight of the incredible skills which you have shown in literally transforming this piece of furniture. I think I will always find it amazing that you managed to do this. I only wish I had more space in my house to accommodate some others!’ (Stephen, March 2020)

'We are so pleased with our piece of furniture from Emma. I already have her looking for another piece to match. Thank you for your time and of course delivering the sideboard in person!' (Alison, August 2019)

'Brilliant communication, securely packaged and delivered. Beautifully renovated, arrived as pictured and described. Many thanks.' (Melanie, May 2019)

'Over the moon with my gorgeous purchase from Emma. She was a delight to talk to and meet in person. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.' (Angela, March 2019)

'As soon as I saw this G Plan corner cupboard I had to have it. Emma was so quick and responsive it was fantastic. She delivered it herself, which I thought was a great touch. I just wish I had room for more stuff, I would be back buying from her in a heartbeat.' (Lisa, January 2019)

'Emma's work is fantastic - I have purchased two gorgeous pieces and I could not love them more! I would, and have recommended her. She is entirely professional and clearly takes great pride in all her work. I want more!' (Jade, December 2018)

'I found Emma purely by chance when scrolling through bedside tables on Google and I couldn't believe my luck when I realised she was just down the road and had the perfect cabinets in stock ready to bespoke. We now have two beautiful bedside tables which are finished exquisitely with the surprise extra touch of being lined with the wallpaper we have in our room - something which Emma sourced without us knowing! Amazing! She was friendly and easy to work with and the result is just fantastic. Would highly recommend and I will definitely be purchasing from Emma again!' (Emily, June 2018)

'Emma is as adorable as her mid century furniture refurbs. Was love at first sight with DesignRetro pieces, and now I am the proud owner of a little piece that fits perfectly in our lives. I love my new drinks cupboard, it fills me with happiness every time I walk past it. Thank you for your creativity Emma!' (Gemma, May 2018)
