I love these stunning installations for the home by Ghost Furniture. The above scalloped, 2 piece, silver-plated fruit dish was purchased in a flea market in Tuscany and has been filled with fruit that has been used as props in photo shoots over the years. Two beef tomatoes, an onion, an aubergine and a pepper sit in the dish and the whole ensemble has been finished in matt white and treated with Ghost’s special smooth wax finish.
Ghost Furniture is based in the beautiful North Tyne Valley, Northumberland. The company take vintage finds and turning them into new and beautiful items with a touch of 21st century eco-chic.
Each piece is unique, has its own history and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. By using traditional techniques and new eco-friendly materials wherever possible they have ‘brought furniture back from the dead and made it into something hauntingly beautiful.’
Ghost furniture have several installation collections, not only ghostly in theme, but also neons, opulent and French chic!
Pieces can be purchased from their own collection or can be custom-made from your own vintage finds.
