RELUISANT is a concept, a dream, a passion for beautiful, peaceful spaces in our homes. I have been privileged in my life to have visited many places around the world. Having a Mediterranean heritage, I have seen the rustic charm of narrow winding streets lined with beautiful stone houses covered with pink flowers. Behind the gates and walls of these stone houses are beautiful gardens, fresh colours of blues and green shabby furniture that immediately gives you a sense of peace and tranquility. I think being a wife and working mum of two children, I crave for those feelings of peace and finding a spot in my home to sit and relax for a few minutes a day. I love to see beautiful pieces come back to life and combining simple objects to create a living picture. Well, why not in my own home and in yours. Surely I am not the only one who wants to look at lovely things and gets pleasure from resurrecting old discarded furniture. The craftsmanship of furniture today is just not the same as it was in the past and even if it was it would cost the earth.

So, I decided to do two things. Find affordable pieces of décor to decorate with and to restore old furniture into French and Mediterranean colours that embellish the concept of peace and tranquility. RELUISANT is French for make shinny and new. Enjoy and happy shopping. Please come and visit me. Many items are just too heavy and fragile to send via post.
