Homely at Hebden bridge is all about breathing new life into beautiful, but forgotten, pieces of French & English furniture. We love the quality of older pieces of furniture, along with its charm and the story it can tell. Using Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan these wonderful tables, chairs and cabinets, to name but a few, are given a new lease of life, allowing the people that own them to take a piece of history into their home and future. We have a mix of styles, including French Elegance, Rustic Country & Boho.
As well as furniture we have a range of carefully selected interiors that will slot perfectly into any home. From fabric to room fragrance, photograph frames to quirky accessories we aim to help you make your house a home.
In addition to our furniture, interiors and gifts, we are also keen to share our passion for re-loving furniture. We are always delighted to discuss colour combinations, paint techniques and tips with our customers. Regular workshops are also held to introduce the ‘best paint in the world’ to new customers, as well and helping more seasoned painters to develop their skills.

We are a wife and wife partnership who dreamed of working together. We started out with just £50 which we spent one Saturday in April 2014, on carefully chosen items at a wholesaler and sold them on eBay.
From there we developed our business by having a website built and continuing to sell on eBay. As our business grew we found there was a demand for furniture that we refurbished in a ‘shabby chic’ style. We were running our business from our house but as it took off we were getting a little cramped so we rented a property at a business park in April 2015.
We invested some money in a trip to France and were excited to return with a van full of amazing furniture. However just as our business had started to pay for itself the 2015 Boxing Day floods hit. Our furniture was all lost, including the wonderful French finds. We lost around 80% of our business.
For a week or so we considered resigning ourselves to the fact that our dream may have been just that. However we are finally back on our feet and have now opened a shop in the beautiful town of Hebden Bridge. We have since been approved as Official Stockists of Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan and have been trained as Colour Experts by the lady herself. We now run workshops so that others may re-love their furniture.
