Sixteen is based in Wing, Buckinghamshire.

We opened our doors in September 2010 when we rented out a small unit ( No 16, hence the name) and began our journey of  sourcing and buying second hand furniture in order to rework and satisfy our new found passion of painting furniture and bringing old pieces back to life . We set about our new belongings with a bottle of Nitromors, an industrial sander, the wonderful Annie Sloan Chalk Paint ( http://www.anniesloan.com/), wax and varnish and even a hairdryer for a particularly fun crackle wax project. Alongside our furniture range we also bought in a selection of homewares, always keeping the Retro/Vintage look in mind. We sourced original items from charity shops, flea markets, ebay and carbot sales. We also bought in new products from suppliers to enhance and add to the overall theme.

 

Since those early days we have been concentrating our efforts on getting out to our customers and we regularly attend a number of events throughout the year. In 2013 we intend to continue this approach plus the obvious addition of our new website for our homeware and gift ranges.
