Hello, my name is Sandrine. I'm originally from France, but I've been living in England for over 20 years, in a wonderful village in Essex, called Wivenhoe. Alongside a long career in language teaching, interpreting and subtitling, I am a keen furniture restorer. I have set up Frantique in order to turn my passion for old furniture and textile into a second career.
I was 14 when I restored my first piece of furniture: a wooden and metal trunk that my parents had found in a tip! Over the years I have restored and revamped all sorts of furniture pieces for family and friends.
I believe that our homes should reflect who we are, and only have beautiful objects that make us happy. Beautiful and also functional. That's why I love giving old tired furniture a new lease of life, and generally a splash of bright colours! However, I'm also very keen to work to fulfil my customers' tastes, requirements and budget.
