Meet our Sussex Furniture and Kitchen Painting team

Having spent the first two decades of my career working for a bank in the City of London, retraining as a painter decorator and starting Sussex Furniture Painting was not something I ever really planned, it was though the stepping stone to meeting Poppy and setting up SFKP together.

As well as working alongside Poppy on the management of our business and the physical act of painting, my focus is on running our workshop and developing our technical expertise and operational capability.

I have learned that stunning finishes rely on an end to end process that blends skill and passion with first class products and tools, and it is the bringing together of all these things into SFKP to create stunning furniture & kitchen finishes that gets me up in the morning (along with lots of coffee of course)!

Poppy - Director

After spending over 20 years in corporate life as a chartered surveyor and having recently started a new family and moved back from Mallora, I decided to start a small business. This was a company called Felt Creative and this craft business led me to meeting Ed. We started working together and made a great team finishing furniture! We quickly knew we could create a fantastic business together that provided customers with the highest quality of service and craftsmanship, and with that we joined forces and created SFKP.

I have a keen eye for detail and my passion for this business shows in everything I do. I am particularly keen on the hand application, designing bespoke pieces and speaking with our customers. You will find me flitting between our workshop office doing our admin, prepping up a piece, spraying or hand applying and whizzing around Sussex with Ed meeting customers and undertaking our onsite work! Let’s not forget the tea making too!

Working Together

It is the fun, the laughs and our shared “nothing’s impossible” outlook that makes working here not feel like work at all! Because of our passion for the business, we are always coming up with ideas. We push ourselves to improve our skills and to make every project as special as the last one.

Much of our work is undertaken from our workshop in Sussex or onsite with our clients. No matter where we are, our small team strives to deliver the highest of standards. Whether we are spraying, hand painting or creating bespoke finishes we always work hard, with professionalism and have an eye on the detail, these attributes see us working for the same clients, time and time again.
