Silvia and Rose met at college, which was a career change for both: a new direction with an opportunity to learn new skills and be creative. Upholstery is all about giving furniture a second chance; the old made new with contemporary style and flair. Therefore, at 10kH the emphasis, as you would expect is on attention to detail and creativity. When it came to choosing a name for their partnership Silvia and Rose agreed that 10kH summed up the ethos they wanted to create. The premise is that practice can lead to perfection in a chosen skill. Add to that their determination for proficiency and the passion that they share for transforming and customising any neglected, tired or currently unloved chairs into unique creations then you have the spirit of 10kH.
