Turner shops charity stores rather than auctions, because she likes to think that the money she spends for furniture is going to good use. She admits that auctions are distracting, since she sees too many things she wants for her own home.
She has well-known clients such as John Lewis, The Old Cinema and Lane Crawford and has created pieces for hotels, cafes and private homes around the world. She sees her career moving in the direction of interior design.
While I lean strongly toward restoring rather than upcycling unless a pieces is beyond saving, I must say that her work is beautifully done. One of her pieces would look great in a kid's room or could provide a nice little note of whimsy in other parts of the house, if your taste ran in that direction. What do you think?
