Our Story

We revitalise furniture to create beautiful, bespoke items that you won’t find in your neighbours home or garden...

Paint Pot was established in the Cathedral city of Chichester, surrounded by the rolling hills of West Sussex. Originally a Textile designer, Moira changed tact and broadened her field to include interior design and decoration. Working both here and abroad as part of a decorative arts duo, providing decorative paint finishes, murals, gilding and colour guidance for clients. Which has given her over 30 years of experience. This led to sourcing individual pieces of furniture and decorative objects for her clients.

During our searches we came across many vintage pieces of good design, beautifully made but needing some attention to allow them to be reused in our contemporary world of interiors.


The Chalk paint revolution and the great and urgent need to be living much more sustainable lives brought this to the fore.

We love the challenge, to be able to extend the lives of pre-loved pieces destined for landfill sites and make our customers happy!

Under the umbrella of The Paint Pot we have an experienced garden designer on board and a professional maker of curtains /blinds and soft furnishings. We also have a small directory of local craftspeople we can recommend.
